BANGKOK, Oct 24 (The Nation Thailand/ANN): Though kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) has been removed from the narcotics list, makers of kratom-spiked “herbal drinks” still need to obtain a permit.

Deputy government spokesperson Traisuree Taisaranakul said recently that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires manufacturers of kratom extract and brews to seek permission under the 2019 Herbal Products Act.

The possession and sale of fresh kratom leaves is allowed.

Meanwhile, The Thailand Meteorological Department said on Sunday (October 24) that the high-pressure system from China covers upper Thailand cause less rain in the areas.

The easterly and the northeasterly winds prevail over the South and the Gulf of Thailand.

Thundershowers are likely for the country and isolated heavy rain is forecast in the South regions.

People in the risk areas should beware of thundershowers in this as well as heavy rain and have been advised to take precautions. Capital Bangkok is also expected to see scattered thunderstorms on Monday (Oct 25). The Nation Thailand/ANN
