I am a minor originally charged with posession of marijuana under a oz which is getting expunged through a informal agreement. Kratom helps me a lot and want to know if I can still use it. Its legal but can be specifically tested for in labs but will they do that?
Yes Kratom is legal in Georgia, but that doesn't mean its safe to use. There are several specific tests for Kratom that will confirm it has been used; however, it is not usually tested for on standard drug tests. There are specific drug screens to test for Kratom.
Call the clerk of the court it was Ordered in and request a certified copy of the Order. They can mail or you can pick it up at the courthouse. There may be a small fee depending on the County. I pray this helps.

What are you trying to do? Are you wanting the case reopened? If so, why? It sounds like the previous case was dismissed.
