DEA Claims Kratom is as Dangerous as Heroin: Is This True? For the podcast version, click here. Sign the petition to stop the illegalization of Kratom at https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/please-do-not-make-kratom-schedule-i-substance Chronic pain sufferers across the country are about to have a very rough time starting next month. The DEA has just announced plans to make Kratom, an herbal supplement typically used to treat  chronic pain and opioid addiction, illegal to possess or sell. After Sept. 30th, Kratom will be classified as a Schedule I controlled substance. Other Schedule I controlled substances include heroin, ecstasy, LSD, and more. Once this happens, Kratom in all forms will be banned in the country and possession or sale of said Kratom will result in serious legal consequences.  Those reading might be asking themselves, so what? Doesn’t the DEA know what’s best for us? Isn’t the government equipped and capable to dictate what is a harmful substance and what isn’t? When asking these questions, consider this fact: to legitimize the illegalization of Kratom, the DEA cites a CDC report stating there have been 660 calls to poison control services due to Kratom-related incidents between the years of 2010 and 2015. To put that in perspective, there have been more than ten times the number of calls (6,843 to be exact) to poison control services concerning children ingesting laundry detergent pods in only the first seven months of 2016. Also, there have been 15 "Kratom-related deaths" (for clarification, meaning a deaths of people with Kratom in their systems, even if other drugs, like heroin, were present) in the span of two years (2014-2016), yet 78 Americans die every day from opioids. To top things off, the FDA just approved Oxycontin for 11-year-olds.  Oxycontin is a chemical cousin to heroin and is widely blamed for setting off the nation’s prescription opioid epidemic, which has claimed more than 190,000 lives from overdoses involving OxyContin and other painkillers since 1999. Do the FDA, DEA, and similar administrations really have the best interest of the American people at heart? Kratom has been called a “hazard to public safety” by the DEA. However, the number of people claiming a better quality of life, void of harmful or destructive side effects, seem to far outweigh those who claim the opposite. As a chronic pain sufferer myself, I have been narcotic-free for years and have experienced a far greater quality of life than I had prior to taking Kratom; back when I was taking prescription pain killers for my chronic pain. For more information, please view the video at the top of this article. Please sign the petition in an effort to stop the illegalization of Kratom.  *UPDATE: Sept. 4th 2016* There might be hope for Kratom users. Apparently, one company is working to obtain two strains of Kratom that do not contain the two substances found in Kratom that the DEA is trying to ban. For more information, CLICK HERE. From Botanical Guides:  "The bad news is the Government has recently decided to ban Kratom, which goes in effect on the 30th of September, 2016, if they are successful. The good news is we have two new strains of Mitragyna that are not speciosa, and contain different active phytochemicals. The two plants will be available for sale via Botanical Guides starting October 1, 2016. These two strains include: Mitragyna javanica and Mitragyna hirsuta. They contain mitraphylline and mitrajavine, instead of mitragynine. This means that they will be 100% legal, and practically the same thing. This is very fortunate indeed for the American people who would have otherwise been forced to suffer, return to using dangerous pharmaceutical drugs, or other harmful substances. Narcotic pain pills are laced with acetaminophen which is toxic to the liver. Kratom enabled people to avoid these dangers, and gave us all a choice. The government has decided time and time again to take away our freedom. It's time we unite to stop this tyranny legally, and peacefully." Kratom is not a substance for teenagers looking to get high. It is an herbal supplement used by normal Americans: grandmothers, cancer patients, and even disabled U.S. army veterans. David is a 2009 soldier of the year with numerous medals and awards he earned in service of this country. He is also a disabled army veteran who takes Kratom to treat his chronic pain. Everyone needs to watch the video below; disabled army vets across the nation are going to suffer immeasurably due to this DEA decision to ban Kratom. This is one brave veteran's story. Please, watch this and share it around.  *UPDATE: Sept. 17th, 2016* How to Stop the DEA Kratom Ban THIS WEEKEND: From the American Kratom Association:  We have some great news that needs urgent action BY COB TUESDAY (5pm ET)! We, with our lobbyist's help, have found some champions in Congress to write a bipartisan "Dear Colleague" letter asking the DEA to slow down this process. They are Congressmen Pocan of WI, who Susan Ash met with the night before the White House March, and Salmon of AZ. The letter asks, among other things, that the Director of OMB and Acting Director of the DEA delay a final decision on the placement of Kratom as a schedule I, provide ample time for public comment on this significant decision, and resolve any inconsistencies with other Federal Agencies regarding the use of Kratom.  So this is what we need you to do!!! Find your Rep here and e-mail them over the weekend! http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ Then use the number below to call YOUR representative first thing Monday morning. Tell them you are a responsible adult consumer of Kratom for help with ______ (ailment) and ask that they please contact Congressman Pocan's office to sign-on to the Pocan/Salmon Dear Colleague letter on this issue.  To call your Member of Congress: US Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121 Please sign the petition in an effort to stop the illegalization of Kratom.  Thank you for reading, take care, and God bless!
