Snipet of the story from Kratomaton:

“Kratom Community Member Kickstarts New Kratom Documentary

Earlier this month, kratom advocate and community member Drew Turner announced a kratom-centric documentary called The People of the Plant.

Launched via the Kickstarter platform, Turner described the film as “the true insider story of kratom” and promised it would feature the stories of kratom producers, researchers, and users. Turner stated that the film would release in late spring or early summer 2020 for donors before seeing a general release in 2021.

Turner’s film crew is partially financing the film’s production through Kickstarter and will be accepting donations up until Friday, October 4th, 2019. Kickstarter donors will be eligible to receive donation-specific rewards, including production credits.”

UPDATE: no documentary (too bad. His story is powerful and Nan70 posted it on the website somewhere for us)

Here’s the update:

@DrewTurner73
As much as I want to continue the film project life is coming fast right now. For those that have pledged to the Kickstarter I thank you, no one is being charged & I'll be canceling the film for now. Maybe in the future once life is sorted out I'll restart the #PeopleOfThePlant.

Its very sad. I understand why he had to cancel. Life gets hard. I hope he finds a happier solution and gets back to the project.
His story- warning can be hard to watch-

I wanted to post this podcast. I couldn't decide where? Its very powerful support for Kratom remaining legal. I found it more supporting than the Leaf of Faith movie. And you can fast forward to cut to the chase to around 29-30 minutes in if you are an impatient type of person.(me sometimes :whistle: )

Thanks so much for posting these, Nan70! I’m unaware of the reason Drew pulled the movie project, but I’m praying it’s not a health related problem!

These should be required viewing for politicians and anyone else running their mouth / typing their keypads with misinformation (seriously!)!

He talks about it on his twitter feed. He spent time in the hospital came home to find a letter of foreclosure on his house. Problems with the Dept of veterans affairs. Never allowed for him to try and rectify the situation.

cannot link this - can copy and paste in your browser- should find google results
