Sep 14, Why the FDA Wants to Keep Us Sick, Broke, and Ignorant About Kratom

Why would the people of Southeast Asia use Kratom for thousands of years if it was known to predictably create health problems for them? Answer: They wouldn't!
In the medical records from Malaysia and Thailand from the past two hundred years, there are no recorded deaths. "Why not?" is the question we should be asking ourselves. What are Americans and a few Europeans doing that could cause deaths that have been falsely blamed on kratom when there were multiple other drugs or pre-existing conditions involved? Hint: It wasn't the kratom.
The FDA doesn't want to admit that many of these other substances, many of which they approved as safe, may have had anything to do with the deaths -- they don't even want to blame the heroin or O-desmethyl-tramadol -- they'd rather blame kratom, which inherently is about as dangerous as green tea when used by smart people who know what they're doing.
No, this whole charade is about scaring reasonable people away from using this plant because it interferes with Americans' dependence on problematic pharmaceuticals. And there's no money for the FDA in letting this very helpful plant stay on the market.
It doesn't matter that common sense and long experience has shown us that prohibition of substances causes worse problems. The FDA would rather avoid the work of inspecting the product to assure that it is sanitary, not adulterated, and properly labeled.
Of the relatively few problems the CDC has reported as due to kratom, most can be explained by the FDA's portrayal of the herb as an attractive target for those intent on abusing something, anything.
The public deserves better information. Why not tell them the truth? Kratom has a built-in mechanism for resisting abuse and over-use, very similar to that of alcohol -- our body rejects it by vigorous vomiting. As with alcohol, moderate use can be supportive of our sense of wellbeing, but it's wise not to complicate things by also taking other drugs.
Unlike alcohol, kratom by itself is not fatal when consumed in excess. The FDA's claim of kratom-caused fatalities is simply not backed up by research.
Millions of our citizens -- some of them are medical professionals -- are finding unique relief from this plant when used responsibly. Why should they be threatened with prison when all that is needed is scientific, factual information on the part of federal agencies and working with the kratom industry to prevent contamination, adulteration and improper medical claims?
Let's not repeat the social disruption & expense created by criminalization of other useful botanicals with thousands of years of safe human use. Keep kratom legal.
