The plant-based substance known as kratom has a growing presence in the U.S., but the Food & Drug Administration appears intent on putting a halt to its popularity. Kratom is imported from Southeast Asia and has been used by 3 million to 5 million Americans, according to the aptly named American Kratom Assn. It’s sometimes consumed for a euphoric high but is often used to treat chronic pains or help alleviate opioid withdrawal symptoms. But in a report released on Tuesday, the FDA says that after an extensive study, it believes kratom is itself an opioid -- and one that should be avoided. The agency says 44 people have died as a result of taking kratom, though it admits only one of those deaths could be directly linked to the substance (a mixture of drugs were involved in the other cases). “Kratom should not be used to treat medical conditions, nor should it be used as an alternative to prescription opioids,” said FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb. “There is no evidence to indicate that kratom is safe or effective for any medical use.” The FDA and Drug Enforcement Administration originally tried to categorize kratom as a Schedule 1 drug in August but relented after public pushback. This latest study might lead to a permanent place on the Schedule 1 list, which identifies substances with the potential for abuse and/or dependence, but Twitter doesn’t want that. Over the past 45 days, kratom has a 53 percent positive score. –Alex Shultz
