ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA)- According to Sheriff Cecil Cantrell, the Monroe County Board of Supervisors voted on March 22 to pass the ban on the sale of Kratom in the county.
The ban will go into effect on April 1.
According to Cantrell, Kratom has horrible effects on the brain, including seizures and hallucinations.
He also added the drug has been banned in Union and Lowndes counties.
He said most people use the drug as an energy booster but says it can cause effects similar to both opioids and stimulants.
