Happy Thanksgiving from the I Love Kratom Community!

We wanted to post all the Black Friday Deals that our approved vendors have made us aware of. We have heard that there are a few vendors that are having a tough time staying stocked up. We are confident one of these vendors would love to help you until your vendor is all stocked up again!

Another short article just showed up coming out of Huntsville Al, and in it there saying Kratom is a new synthetic drug. PLEASE FREINDS, tell me how these writers legally can write this shit when its not true. Kratom will eventually be all banned PERIOD because of all STRAIT OUT LIES and the media and government are getting away with it. And I don't think there is nothing else more we can do, we as a whole Kratom community have done as much as we can. It just makes me so mad and sad at the same time. Does anyone feel me here???

I wrote them a nice letter as well. This pisses me off and it's not helping anybody.

The writer of the article wrote me back and said they went and took the synthetic drug part out, then asked if I would speak to him about my views on kratom, I said yes and went into more detail about what kratom is and how it's processed and why people use it and how big pharma is trying to demonize it. I haven't heard back from him yet.

Hey Cybin,

Well that's awesome. I'm glad he responded to one of us. I'm wondering why he didn't write me back, lately I've been watching the web for media outlets to come out with postings, articles, etc.. and I caught this one today like an hour or 2 after it went out online. O well, I'm real happy and thankful you took some of your time to write in and that he responded. So thank you brotha for doing that!

Take it easy. Anymore news you here I'm always interested to here!

NW49ersFan: I wish you wouldn't be so negative. You don't seem to be aware of how hard teams of people are working in Florida, Georgia, right now in Kentucky, and then we'll send them to Alabama, NY, NJ, and WI.

I disagree that we have done as much as we can. We (at the American Kratom Association) had a success in Florida again this year. We seemed to have stopped the ban in Georgia in their House of Representatives, at least. We keep fighting and it's a bit disheartening to hear you talking like nothing is going to work. That kind of thinking and talk will lead to doing nothing -- and then, kratom will be banned.

When an organized group of citizens gets in front of our political leaders and we state our claims, they will hear us -- and we've seen them change their minds and back down on banning kratom. They don't understand it, but many of them DO understand opioid drug addiction (some have family members in addiction) and some have diseases like Lyme or Lupus that do better with kratom than any MD's drug.

So, you're obviously not seeing the successes and how hard we're fighting for you. I guess I'll have to write about what's going on, to give you some hope.

Hey paul,

wow, I sure think that is highly critical of you to say about me. you are taking what I'm saying and taking it way out of what I'm trying to say. I'm not trying to be negative at all. I worry every day that the medicine we take could be gone and all I'm doing is looking for these bogus articles and trying to bring them to the for front (which I thought would be helpful).

I also have wrote very polite letters into the legislators of Georgia and Florida telling my story trying to help keep it legal. And in working in the field of chemical dependency I get a lot of hack for being an ambassador for Kratom, so I just didn't expect that you would be calling me a negative writer, this is a disappointing morning after reading that, but still thanks for your input I guess.

Take care

Hey Justin,

Thank you for sharing this article, I will make sure to write the author as well. I hope I am able to get a reply as Cybin_spores has so I can give the author my two cents as well.

I think Paul was just a bit upset about you saying we've done all we can do, and in his defense it did sound a bit like you wanted to roll over and die from the post. Just based off of what you post here, I know that you genuinely care about the legality of the plant and have no intentions of rolling over and dying. We most definitely have not done all we can do though, including doing more to counter these negative articles with positive articles.

I'm going to post one plan I have for us to begin to counter the negativity, please check it out and tell me what you think!

Hey Michaels,

Thanks for the feedback & thanks for understanding what I'm saying. I once could not live without my daily long acting Morphing dose and between 4-6 10mg Vicodin's for my severe chronic back pain and chronic colitis stomach issues, when Kratom eventually got me off all the big pharma narcotics. And like I said working within the chemical dependency field I get a lot of bad feedback when I even mention Kratom so it was just a real bummer to be seen as a negative Kratom member, but I guess I can see where Paul was coming from but still sucks. So anyway thanks for that post ill try an be more positive I just thought It was good to bring these negative articles up so we know what the media is saying.

Take care!
