Kratom: The New Drug Substitute

Kratom is a unique drug that is being promoted as a drug substitute. This promotion is causing it to grow in popularity at a rapid rate. Law enforcement officers are contacting individuals who have used this drug, though officers are unsure of what it is, its legal status, forms it can be found, methods of use, and its effects on the user. Kratom: The New Drug Substitute, provides officers with general knowledge of Kratom, its psychoactive alkaloids and provides impairment indicators observed when three Kratom consumers completed drug influence evaluations. 

This course is POST approved for Missouri law enforcement officers. Missouri officers will receive 1 hour of continuing education in Technical Studies.
