Is Kratom Legal in Iowa?

Despite legislative attempts in 2014, Kratom remains legal to buy, sell, and possess in the state of Iowa. This was due largely to a petition against the criminalization of Mitragyna speciosa. Interestingly, these same petitioners asked the state to enact regulations to help ensure that shops could only carry 100 percent pure Kratom. As of 2019, there are no regulations in effect yet.
