A bill which would make the substance Kratom illegal for South Dakotan’s under the age of 21 passed out of the House Tuesday.  It will now make its way to the senate for consideration.  The bill is sponsored by District three Representative Carl Perry, who tried a similar bill last session but it failed.  Kratom is a plant from Southeast Asia which has some opioid properties and can be used as a stimulant or other ways.  According to the US Food and Drug Administration however, it says there is no evidence Kratom is safe or effective in treating any condition.
