BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND...
A few months ago we asked some of the Approved Vendors to offer some discounts to our community. A lot of them graciously did. We have been asked to bring those discounts back. The following vendors would like to share the love for this forum with you. I know we all appreciate it.

I received an e-mail this morning in my medpage today newsletter:
CDC Issues Warning on New Opioid Substitute
'Emerging public health threat' from plant-based drug Kratom
I've been reading, apparently exclusively, about state level issues because this really took me by surprise

This post by the CDC seems to be a position statement, which appears to be a sign the battle on the federal level is escalating. They are totally ignoring all the good that is being done by kratom for those who use it responsibly, while focusing on the tiny number of those that abuse it, often in combination with alcohol and Rx drugs to get "high".

I am working on a public response on behalf of the American Kratom Association (americankratom.org) that will put this in context.

It appears that Big Pharma is quietly putting pressure on the FDA and CDC to start the moves to crack down on this life-SAVING herb and we must not let that go, unchallenged. And we won't! ;)

I read an article in Forbes magazine that on August 31 2016 they are going to put "Kratom" as a class one narcotic towards the end of semptember. Here's a link www.forbes.com/sites/davidkroll/2016/08/...nefits/#2075248a7924
