Don’t ban kratom, end the war on drugs instead
*from the anti-plant propaganda movie, Reefer Madness.
Currently legal in the United States, millions of Americans have safely used kratom for therapeutic… purposes. In recent years, federal agencies which have no regard for individual liberty like the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Food and Drug Administration have set their sights on kratom.
Proponents of safe access to kratom and individual liberty alike should make clear their opposition to any attempt by the federal government to prohibit or overly restrict access to kratom. People should absolutely be aware of any risks or dangers of kratom use, but prohibition will only punish those with legitimate needs and create a whole new black market with all the risks and downsides black markets have.
