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.

We may have turned the corner on the legality of kratom at the federal level, which is key to state efforts, too. The National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) scientists have determined that pure, unadulterated kratom is not dangerous. This is a blockbuster, which cuts the FDA off at the knees in their effort to criminalize this helpful plant.

Check this out from the AKA: www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/safety-...abuse-300688288.html

Lying Dr. Gottlieb, Commissioer of the FDA, will be eating a lot of humble pie in the near future, I expect -- and well-deserved!

We're not out of the woods yet, but this is cause for celebration.

Certainly throws a curve ball at the FDA efforts. How influential on policy is the NIDA?


“ Currently, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has a monopoly on the supply of research-grade marijuana, but no other Schedule I drug, that can be used in FDA-approved research. NIDA uses its monopoly power to obstruct research that conflicts with its vested interests. MAPS had two of its FDA-approved medical marijuana protocols rejected by NIDA, preventing the studies from taking place. MAPS has also been trying without success for almost four years to purchase 10 grams of marijuana from NIDA for research into the constituents of the vapor from marijuana vaporizers, a non-smoking drug delivery method that has already been used in one FDA-approved human study.

- found from Wikipedia, not sure how dependable the info is.

Could their angle be similar would this open NIDA to control Kratom research.
