Oh wow! I'll check that out. I have mad respect for the plant after all it's done for me. For a while they made it illegal here in Atlanta.
(Last post I'll do on this cause I'm not trying to hijack the board or sound radical, lol)
There were a lot of places where the lobby 'tried' to make it illegal. They succeeded in a lot of the southern states and there are places where it is 100% not legal - like a lot of herbals that are harmless - and the vendors in those places lost their livelihoods. The DEA also tried to put it into the same schedule as marijuana (which would make it impossible to study) but they backed off when it saw how many people, professionals included, supported Kratom and there was zero reason for it to be scheduled with LSD....though none of them should be in that group IMO. Florida was a HUGE win due to all the pill mill money that was there. Even the liberal reps were being paid to say things that don't stand up to science....one of them said some really gross, unfounded things that just sounded like a smear campaign.
Anyways, Kratom and regular tea are all I use, so I'm not big on MJ but I have always supported the MJ community and don't want Kratom to end up like what's happened to cannabis......just because some guys with money didn't want their pill operation to go under.
