BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND...
A few months ago we asked some of the Approved Vendors to offer some discounts to our community. A lot of them graciously did. We have been asked to bring those discounts back. The following vendors would like to share the love for this forum with you. I know we all appreciate it.

Just found out that the DEA is going to put Kratom as a Schedule I narcotic. There's a petition out that needs 100,000 signatures for this not to pass. Please sign this! If you're like me, Kratom has helped my life tremendously and to take that away would be very bad for me.

Here's the link to the petition

Does getting 100,00 signatures really make it remain legal, and get it off the ban list?

No, but it will let them know how we feel about it and that we won't go down without a fight. The DEA and the federal government are out of control. The reason they want to ban Kratom is simple. By using Kratom instead of painkillers, we are costing the pharmaceutical companies millions of dollars in profit. You can bet the pharmaceutical companies are putting the pressure on the DEA to ban Kratom, and more than likely make it a controlled substance so they can make a profit off of it. The DEA could care less that Kratom is saving lives. The only way to stop them is thousands upon thousands of people like you and me, doing everything we can. Don't just sign the petition. Write letters to every government official you know. Send emails. Call them. Get involved!! Join the American Kratom Association group on Facebook. They will tell you what you need to do so your voice can be heard. Stand up and fight!!

Unfortunately no, but we can have a voice. I agree with this other commentor, we are costing pharmaceutical companies large amounts of money, they just want a piece of the pie.

There was a good article today in forbes.com that talked about it...iM traveling now, but I'll find the link.

Also, Sept 30th is the day when Kratom becomes illegal...oh well, I guess I'll have to figure something out (wink wink)

Does this mean that all Vendors of Kratom will not sell Kratom anymore? I guess I will have to find something else. Won't be easy. That really pisses me off about the DEA. They have no idea about Kratom. Kratom is a very complex all natural herb. It is in the Coffee Family. I just don't understand it. Why don't they go after real drugs. I guess all of the Thousands that Kratom has helped will go back to getting addicted to Real Narcotics. All of the former Addicts that Kratom helped get off of drugs will go back to their drug of choice. The DEA is making things so much worse. They should just ban Coffee while they are at it. :angry:

Kratom's cousins Mitragyna Javanica and Mitragyna Hirsuta may be the best alternative to kratom.

Yeah I know but they are a lot less potent & Speciosa is mild already. I wander how much people would have to take of them 2 plants to equal a good dose of Plain Leaf Kratom. I've heard that both of them don't last as long or have the anxiety or pain relief effects that Speciosa has but it looks like it's the best alternative so far. I've read that they are rare plants so they will be more expensive. I've seen them go for around 80 cents per gram. It takes around 20 - 30 grams per dose in a Tea. So I couldn't afford to do that. I can only afford the cheapest possible Herb.

I would like so say Thank You to all of you that helped me with how to use kratom to stop opiate abuse, and thank god i found it before this ban, it saved my life, and hopefully i can stay doing good even after the ban if there is one and continue to stay drug free. I feel very sad for all of those still suffering that may not get the opportunity that i did to be able to quit with the help of kratom. I know several people that i had told about how i quit that will now not get the chance to try to quit like this if there is a ban. suboxone and methadone have been proven over and over again to not be very useful in stopping and are in fact just as bad as the drugs they are trying to quit, Kratom was not that way and it is a shame they are taking it away.

I'm not sure if people will quit selling it or not...you know how this stuff goes. I'll be talking to a very smart guy about this today.

There will be alternatives of course, but nothing like Bali (what I use).

Kratom took me away from drugs and I will not stop using it.

This is very sad news for me and many others.
I signed petition of course.
Looks like my order will be a large one ..thank goodness for credit. This may explain why I have been finding so many of my favorite vendors out of my favorite picks.
