So this is how the FDA situation in the US is being reported in our local newspaper.

The FDA is determined in its unjust war on kratom. It's so sad because it helps so so many people!

The CDC is getting into the battle now, with apparently 40 deaths due to "Salmonella" tainted Kratom.. It's all the government lobbying together.... what I saw on the news last night really made me laugh, but made me sad at the same time. It's just like the Reagan Era, lots of information with no reliable sources. The only sources I've read are articles posted here with actual Scientists and Institutions providing studies that Kratom is SAFE... but obviously like anything, can be abused, cause issues... heck I had a guy yell at me at work the other day for drinking a Pepsi, I said what, why what's wrong? He replied "Soda gives you cancer!"... Well I'm 33, I've probably been drinking soda since I was like 5-6 years old, so if that's true.. I guess I won't be along much longer... as he smoked a Marlboro Red outback of the shop hehe... Go figure!

It's funny how the lesser or least healthy individuals always give the "best" advise. I could run circles around this guy on a track. I keep myself healthy, exercise regularly, I was injured playing ice hockey several years ago, with kratom I am still able to play for fun and work my job that requires a lot of labor on certain days... it's amazing, people just don't know. And the ones that don't want to know, are just ignorant, but hey everyone is entitled to their beliefs.

No pun intended but what you expressed in the last paragraph reminded me of a quote from a roman emperor. I think it was Marcus Arellius Antonious.

"It never ceases to amaze me; we all love ourselves more than other people, but care more about their opinions than our own."

As far as the current state of affairs; should we be surprised? I'm betting the best is yet to come so don't get wore out to soon. ;)
“We're all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn't. We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing.”

Vermont is only illegal if the alkaloids are taken WITHOUT the leaf.
Vermont is now legal. Yes, I checked this out.
