They use it when eating rats or bugs on Naked And Afraid on Discovery Channel. I’m not a regular viewer! Just familiar enough with the odd varmints they cook and eat, also tasting “just like chicken”!

We get it!

As for kratom shots, Yes, there’s extremely strong extracts out there that CAN get people into serious addiction if they don’t watch their step. Done repeatedly is simply another substance problem FOR SHORE!

There are people who chase the dragon and eventually blame the SUBSTANCE for the resulting problems.

Substances don’t CAUSE problems any more than cars drive themselves into trees.


LOL! I haven't heard of that show! I didn't want anyone thinking I was a Pica eating ignoramus!! LOL! I love this forum.

Be blessed everyone.

I don’t know definitively why this is, but it may have something to do with a need to have power over individuals. Most evangelical preachers, if the words of who they follow are correct, will most certainly end up separated from him in the end.


Gibson,
As a Christian, I find your generalizations to be highly offensive.

Everyone embellishes, it is human nature. The media embellishes constantly and not always in ways that we, as Kratomites, agree with. But that doesn’t mean everyone in the media is against kratom. It usually means they don’t know all the facts.

Would it be right for me to say that every liberal is a leftist? Or that every liberal is a atheist? Based on family and friends I know both of those generalizations are false.

I would have responded to this post earlier but I was at church this morning and then spent the rest of the day with my family.

Thank you for letting me share,
Don

I’m not surprised you took my generalizations to heart. As a former evangelical I’ve found that’s just the way of things I suppose. Please don’t take it personally, look around at those charlatans that surround our president, those that preach the prosperity gospel, those, like the OP’s protagonist that embellished a story for...what..? To be...what..? ...and if you have eyes...

But again, I offer no apologies, most are horrible at the worst, mislead at the best, and I’d like to reiterate “most”. If that doesn’t fit you, then we’re on the same team. No problem with faithful folk. I get that. Every liberal IS a leftist, it’s the definition. We fall to the left of the middle. I remember the days when right and left had lunch together. Why do you think that stopped? Ah, sex, religion and politics. My only apology is for posting, please carry on. Though I will still talk if we can keep it respectful.

Gibson,
I pray you do not let those charlatans, who spread a false gospel to steal money from people, steal the peace and joy from your soul. They are wolves in sheeps clothing and in due time will be held accountable.

In my recovery/step group we say that holding onto bitterness and hate is like you drinking poison and hoping that they will die. But it is hurting only you and doing nothing to them.

I know how that can be because I struggle with it at times when I have "stinking thinking" about all the bad that has been inflicted on me in the past.

In the words of our President to be (Robie) "be blessed".

Don :)

Just read that Mississippi voted down having a Prescription Monitoring Program for the 7th yr in a row. Every state i think has one.
it monitors opiates, benzos and HGH. So it is designed to cut down on dr shopping for pill abuse. They monitor what dr wrote the script, what pharmacy dispensed it, and how you payed. If they notice any suspicious activity in it your dr's and pharmacies get a copy of it.

So this begs the question why wouldnt Mississippi want this. Remember this is the state that was unable to pass a state wide ban on kratom. now they have a drug task force going around banning individual counties their. And law enforcement and politicians putting out negative kratom propaganda in the media.

this is obv. another case if you follow the money it will lead back to Big Pharma lobbyists wanted their opiates freely prescribed in that state. And kratom is cutting into their profits.

I do love democracy, and I’m all for profit/loss/best and most competitive come out on top, etc., but our country seems to be the Wild West concerning capitalism. We’re a pretty good country, but the voters.. common sense isn’t very common.

I cannot imagine consuming that much Kratom in a week. I think it would cause terminal constipation. Sounds like a BS story to me. Or mayber he was paying an exorbitant price for Kratom.

There is no end to ignorance.
