My post this week is very important: it’s about the fight to keep kratom legal.
Almost a week ago, the DEA voiced their intention to make this wonderful herb a Schedule I substance, effective September 30th 2016.
I feel that this is a terribly rash decision, and so do many countless others. As a result, no more kratom could mean life or death for people who depend on it.
Pressed for time but still want to help? Save this post and check out the following links:
- National Call To Action — American Kratom Association
- What You Can Do to Help Keep Kratom Legal (If You Have No Time or Money) (By our kratom friend Chris Deoudes aka Good Looking Loser)
I wrote this page explaining the entire situation, which I will keep updated as the fight to keep kratom legal goes on.
I’ve taken down my previous posts on kratom and redirected them to help ensure all awareness is kept on the situation at hand.
See this great video by The Young Turks on the recent DEA decision.
Keep Kratom Legal, Save Lives
There has been a TON of support out there for kratom since the DEA’s announcement, and it’s absolutely outstanding. A lot of people seem to understand what kratom means to everyone who needs it.
Many people actually depend on it for managing pain, mental and physical medical conditions and for staying off of dangerous addictive drugs, both legal and illegal. For these people, kratom has been the answer, unlike many of the conventional and oftentimes expensive solutions provided by pharmaceuticals.
Kratom works because it contains alkaloids that interact with the opioid receptors of the body. This allows for relief from pain, among many other benefits. It also helps to treat anxiety and serious mental health issues like PTSD.
Ultimately, as long as we can keep kratom legal, people who need its help can continue to reap its benefits.
