From the BEA about Tennessee

Tennessee - The conference committee of 3 house members and 3 Senate members met this morning. They were able to reach a compromise. The conference committee report was drafted, signed by all committee members, and filed in both the House and Senate. The House voted on the conference committee report. It passed the house just a few minutes ago by a vote of 86-2.

Conference Committee Report on House Bill No. 1832 / Senate Bill No. 2258
The House and Senate Conference Committee appointed pursuant to motions to resolve the differences between the two houses on House Bill No. 1832 (Senate Bill No. 2258) has met and recommends that all amendments be deleted.

The Committee further recommends that the following amendment be adopted: by deleting Sections 10 and 11, substituting instead the following, and redesignating the subsequent sections accordingly:


SECTION 10. Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 39-17-452(a), is amended by adding the following as a new subdivision (a)(3):


(A) It is an offense for a person to knowingly:


(i) Sell, or offer for sale, Kratom unless labeled and in its natural form; (ii) Distribute, sell, or offer for sale, Kratom to a person under the age of twenty-one (21) years; 

or
(iii) Purchase or possess Kratom if under the age of twenty-one (21) years.


(B) For purposes of this subdivision (a)(3):


(i) "Labeled" means a label containing the manufacturer's information and a warning that includes, at a minimum, "Warning: Do not use if you are pregnant or nursing. It is illegal to possess Kratom if under 21 years of age. Consult your healthcare professional before using. Do not combine with alcohol or medication. Consult a doctor prior to use if you have any heart disease, liver disorder, high blood pressure, or medical condition or take medication."; 

and
(ii) "Natural form" means dried, cut, and sifted Kratom leaf or raw Kratom leaf powder.
Again, We are waiting for a signature from the Governor and Session end.
We would like to thank Our Lobbyists and the Teamwork that brought us to this point.
