Here is a link to the press release, telling what went on at the recent Vendors and Advocates Summit in Atlanta.


Much good will come out of this epic meeting, I predict.
You guessed it! This section is for general discussion that may or may not have anything to do with Kratom.

Hi, I don't know if this is an OK question ?, but...

I live in NY, Kratom is still fine here. For the people out there in states where it has been banned, what is your solution? How (if) have you found a way around this, or have you developed a method to get via a third party from a legal state? Would this forum be a place to connect w people to help? I'm just asking hypothetically, because NY is fine, but the only way I can think of would be to have someone (not the vendor) you knew in a legal state send it to you. If anyone would share their experiences I'd be very interested. PM me if its not appropriate to talk about this in public forum.

Thank you

I'm writing an article about this for the Blog here, which will be published in a day or two. Not to spoil the suspense, but -- since kratom works so much better for the many reasons people consume it -- most of those I've talked to are, so far, quietly buying from friends who stocked up before the ban became law. I was told that one drug addict went back to the pills he had been taking before he found kratom, and died. My sense of the situation in all the illegal states is that people find ways to get kratom, they are discrete about using it, and go about their lives. It just makes obtaining a regular supply more difficult (and risky). It will cause many deaths for those who use kratom to keep from using heroin.

But, generally, the ban is creating a tight-knit support community and alienating these new law-breakers from the medical, pharmaceutical, and drug rehab/pain clinic businesses that were pushing for this ban. When the public finds a better remedy for something as personal as pain or depression -- and they learn that conventional medical practitioners are opposing kratom for reasons of money -- they get very cynical very quickly. In the long run, that is a healthy thing that will bring positive changes in the practice of medicine.
