plant in order to have a bigger efficiency of the work. The
Thailand Kratom Act 2486 was passed by government in 1943,
on August 3rd. According to it, it is illegal to plant Kratom
trees and the already existing trees have to be cut.

Kratom in the same class with the heroin and the
cocaine and the same penalties are applied as in the
case of the two drugs.

applied for one ounce of Kratom extract. More, to
distribute, sell and export Kratom from the land of
smile is also completely banned. Recent information
from Thailand showed that Kratom trees were
