State Senator Pushes for Under-21 City & State-wide New York Kratom Ban
New York State Senator Pam Helming has advocated for upcoming legislation that would prohibit the sale of kratom and kratom products to individuals under the age of 21. She cites “the addiction crisis” and “the risks of kratom” as motivations behind her stance.
Helming co-sponsored similar legislationtwice, but neither bill was brought to the Assembly floor for a vote. However, the NY State Senator is hopeful that the motion will pass next year.
Aside from defining a minimum age for purchase, Helming’s legislation would fine vendors up to $500 for the illicit sale of kratom to individuals under 21.
As of this writing, kratom is legal to possess, purchase, sell, and distribute in the state of New York.
