Re: “Arkansas's ban of the natural painkiller Kratom has left sufferers and former opiate addicts in the lurch

The whole point is the DEA, FDA and Pharmaceutical companies do not have our best interests at heart! It's pure greed and/or ignorance. They need to listen to kratom users, hear their testimonies and have a heart!

Re: “Arkansas's ban of the natural painkiller Kratom has left sufferers and former opiate addicts in the lurch

The misinformation about kratom and how it works is so upsetting. Kratom does not make anyone "high". It's nothing like heroine or cocaine and shouldn't be in the same category. Another awful misconception is you can overdose on it. Your body will reject it if you take too much your your body. It simply won't allow you to overdose! Another is supposed deaths connected to kratom when in actuality, kratom just happened to be one of several, known chemicals found in the victim. The other chemicals are known dangerous drugs! There's no proof that Kratom caused any deaths on its own. This whole situation comes down to greed and control issues in the government.
