commented on The Rush to Prohibit Kratom
Thank you for providing the first article I have seen in years that accurately describes Kratom without the "new drug scare" tactic sooo many others have.
I am a middle aged woman who has had 3 back surgeries and live in constant pain. I went through the gamut of pharmaceuticals (oxycontin, lortab, fentanyl, lyrica, methadone, neurontin, and many, many more) and all of the narcotics took my soul and eventually didn't even help the pain. I found Kratom almost 3 years ago and have my life back with manageable pain. In those 3 years, I have never experienced any hallucinations or been "high". The worst side effect experienced was nausea. I only use 1/2 teaspoon extract once a day and it helps more than any other pain reliever I have found without all the side effects. If it becomes illegal, I will truly be devastated. I wish anyone who makes the laws would just use it once and see it is not the sinister drug it has been made out to be.
