From what I’ve read it looks like the DEA is still going forward with the ban, they just aren’t sure when. If I’m wrong please correct me.
I’ve never tried Kratom. Not yet anyway.
After a failed, major back surgery I have been in chronic pain for almost 6 years. The pain can almost be compared to child birth. And it is a NON STOP pain. I have been taking high doses of strong narcotics, just to get SOME relief from my pain, for almost 6 years and I cannot continue taking them. They are ruining my life! I’m always in a foul mood, my libido is nonexistent, I have absolutely no energy what so ever, I always feel TERRIBLE, I am burning up and pouring sweat even when it’s not hot, and I’m still in a lot of pain, (the narcotics do help some though). These negative effects are ALL caused by the RX pain pills. I have a family to care for, and I can barely do it!! Kratom seems like it would be a much better alternative for my pain and it may even help my mood and give me some energy! So why wouldn’t I want to try it? Almost all of these lawmakers are in the pocket of Big Pharma and they don’t care how many lives they ruin by forcing legitimate pain patients to have to go to a Dr, get an Rx, get that RX filled, and take high doses of dangerous narcotics multiple times every day. Big Pharma cares about NOTHING but money. And the same can be said for most of these lawmakers as well. They don’t care who they hurt or how many people they hurt, as long as their pockets are lined.
What are we supposed to do when there is a legitimate need for pain relief yet Tylenol, Aspirin, etc… don’t help, we don’t want to take narcotics and the pain is just too bad to bear?!
They lie and say Kratom is addictive and dangerous, but anyone who’s ever researched it or taken it knows there isn’t much truth to that! It certainly ISN’T dangerous!
Kratom is very similar in make-up to the coffee plant and is no more addictive than caffeine.
If they’re going to ban Kratom and make it a Schedule 1 drug then they need to do the same with caffeine!! But they’d never do that because they all drink coffee, sodas, tea, etc… all of which contain caffeine!
They’d never ban vitamins so why ban a natural plant that has so many positive uses?
I have ALWAYS abided by the law, I’ve never done illegal drugs, I’ve never done drugs recreationally. But I have to do something about my pain and I am SICK of the side effects and problems caused by RX narcotics.
If they ban Kratom then they are KNOWINGLY AND WILLINGLY hurting millions of people! I really hope they reconsider!

If anyone wants to use or share my comment, that’s fine with me. As long as it’s used in a positive manner to support the use of Kratom and to disapprove of the ban on Kratom.
