Good find. I give it 6 months to a year before some enterprising Chinese chemist slightly changes the structure of 7-hydroxymitragynine, ships it to the U.S., and people start dying from it. The results of the backward logic the DEA keeps telling us is for our own good.

Right, there is a market for it right now so people are going to fill the gap made by this ban.

Every time. The reality is that criminalizing people and forcing dangerous things like drugs underground only makes them more dangerous and harms more people in the long run. But that doesn't justify continued funding and job security for the bureaucrat's who's job it is to make sure they still have a job. It's a vicious cycle, where regular people are chewed up and spit out so another government agency can justify it's existence.

The DEA is a degenerate and fascist organization at the vanguard of the growing American police state.


Ironic that the US is giving up control over the internet and making illegal a well established tremendously helpful herb that millions of people use successfully to navigate their lives, at the same time, September 30.

I say this is an omen of the coming world police state where the internet will be controlled by some international sinister police agency and we’ll all be forced to suffer with prescription drugs Ironic that the US is giving up control over the internet and making illegal a well established tremendously helpful herb that millions of people use successfully to navigate their lives, at the same time, September 30.

I say this is an omen of the coming world police state where the internet will be controlled by some international sinister police state and we’ll all be forced to suffer with prescription drugs from the pharma mafia or go to jail.

We should know by the end of the month if they're going to wait another year to do this since a petition brought in more than the the requisite 10,000 signatures to stop that STUPIDITY!! 🙌 👌👍👏 🙆

NEWS....KRATOM BAN UPDATE

From the head of the Kratom Association
www.americankratom.org...


....We have some great news that needs urgent action BY 5pm ET TUESDAY! We, with our lobbyist's help, have found some champions in Congress to write a bipartisan "Dear Colleague" letter asking the DEA to slow down this process. They are Congressmen Pocan of WI, who I met with the night before the March, and Salmon of AZ.

The letter asks, among other things, that the Director of OMB and Acting Director of the DEA delay a final decision on the placement of Kratom as a schedule I, provide ample time for public comment on this significant decision, and resolve any inconsistencies with other Federal Agencies regarding the use of Kratom. Click HERE to see the letter.


Bottom line Monday call your congressman and tell them how Kratom helps you and to have your rep contact Congressman Pocan's office to sign-on to the Pocan/Salmon Dear Colleague letter on this issue.



So this is what we need you to do!!! Find your Rep here and e-mail them over the weekend! www.house.gov... Then use the number below to call YOUR representative first thing Monday morning. Tell them you are a responsible adult consumer of Kratom for help with ______ (ailment) and ask that they please contact Congressman Pocan's office to sign-on to the Pocan/Salmon Dear Colleague letter on this issue.

This will literally be a crime

The war on drugs is a feeble and destructive failure and they want to expose more Americans to that failed system.
