Kratom : Guardian of Freedom
Anti-kratom activists, led by FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, are committed to protecting the opioid manufacturers who are raking in billions of dollars every year by hooking honest Americans who are trying to manage chronic pain on highly addictive and potentially deadly opioids.
I am not going to mince words, I am frustrated. There is no doubt in my mind that the FDA and the opioid manufacturers are twisting the arms of the DEA to rubberstamp their scheduling proposal for kratom. At the federal level, we continue to fight against the proposed scheduling recommendation for kratom made by the opioid manufacturer’s mouthpiece, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb.
