commented on The Rush to Prohibit Kratom
I am 63 years old and a tax-paying productive member of society. I have been using kratom daily for several years to combat chronic anxiety and depression plus the minor aches and pains resulting from my work and my age. It works great and I have NO side effects. Good appitite, sleep good, regular bowels, and my liver is in great shape even though I have had hepatitis c for more that 20 years.I will tell you in a nutshell what is behind the calls for banning it. Big Pharma. They don't want people to have a safe, cheap natural alternative to the expensive,dangerous addictive drugs that they sell at great profit.Am I addicted? Probably. But so long as it is legal,that is not a problem. I am also addicted to a cousin of kratom,called coffee. So what.
