Kratom, health supplement targeted by FDA…

“Regulation before prohibition is the answer,” says Susan Ash, a founder of the American Kratom Association in Virginia, who says she uses the herb three times a day to treat pain and lethargy from chronic Lyme disease.

Ash says the product should be restricted to adults, the supplement’s packaging should carry warning labels and vendors should test their products for purity … “Most of us believe there should be some standards,” Ash says. [A community provider of Kratom says]… he takes Green Dampar kratom in the morning for its caffeine-like zing.​ “We open at 8 a.m. because people buy it in the morning to make tea instead of going to Starbucks,” he says. [He] accuses the FDA of using “scare tactics.” “We sell to thousands of people, and nothing bad happens,” he says. “It’s all politics.”
