    Abstract

    Ketum merupakan tumbuhan tropika yang digunakan dalam perubatan traditional untuk mengurangkan kesakitan dan merawat cirit-birit. Walau bagaimanapun, di Malaysia, ketum seringkali disalahgunakan sebagai dadah rekreasi disebabkan kesan rangsangan sistem saraf pusat dan kekerapan penyalahgunaannya semakin meningkat semenjak 2005. Kratom is a tropical plant used in traditional medicine for pain relief and to treat diarrhea. However, in Malaysia kratom is commonly misused as a recreational drug due to its central nervous system stimulatory effect and its frequency of abuse has been on the rise since 2005.
