these white collar criminals called politicians get more corrupt by the day.
kratom does not pose any type of threat to be attacked as such. other then the obv. pressure from big pharma that is losing money.
they have nothing close to anything resembling facts about kratom. the Minister of Propaganda should come out with a film "Kratom Madness".,,just like "Reefer Madness" back in the day.

And if they are so concerned about peoples health do they realize banning kratom.,which is the same as prohibition.,will make things worse and actually kill people.

Kratom will go on the black market and will end up getting laced with all sorts of synthetic substances.

They will also have a lot of people being forced to turn to heroin because pain pills are too hard to get from a dr anymore.

How people can think this is "the greatest country" with such a corrupt government that only cares about the needs and continued wealth of the 1%.
This country has so many resources that could be made available yet they dont even blink an eye when it comes to people not having food to eat, homelessness, no or insufficient medical care, no regard for the environment, over prescribing ever-type of big pharma pushed out on the market with srs side effects that the FDA has no problem approving. Hell the FDA isn't even close at keeping our food safe. Notice how much food and vegetables have been recalled in the past 6 months.
Ah, I need to go take some kratom so i dont get aggravated thinking about these criminals and how wrong they have made things for the regular members of this country.

Hello jayisk. All I can add to your statement is amen brother. amen..... I'm fed up and I'm going to do everything in my power so this doesn't line the pockets of congressional leaders that are heavily invested in the private prison industries. The most freedom entitled country on earth my a$$. Any congressman that is invested in the private prison systems should be forced to resign for conflict of interest. Enough!!! Either we embrace the truth or let ourselves be led like lambs to the slaughter. country on earth my ass.

Be blessed in all things jayisk.

Damn brothers :woohoo: that's pretty much where my brain goes every time I think of anything relating to politics. I'm glad there are people out there aware of how things are run in this country. I get really tired of this identity politics b.s "I'm Right or I'm
Left" ya, good for you, your both being played and bent over. The one behind you with his hands on your shoulders somehow has you thinking that some other average poor bastard is the one $#&@&$# you. Always got a bad guy in the wings for us to be afraid of, if there's a lull, they get us to turn on each other.

How about judges being invested in for profit private prisons or anyone in the judicial system with any control over our freedom ... Conflict of interest anyone ?

How about civil forfeiture, take you shite without even waiting for your trial to see if you're actually found guilty.

Rights ? Seems all they have to do is say you're a suspected terrorist and ... Poof ... No rights.

Right to vote ? , Right to pick between their two choices, they win no matter what. Even if we got someone in the White House who actually gave two shites about average people, doesn't matter, 500+ corrupt patsies in Congress with their own agendas and "reelection funds" ( actually don't think they are all bad, guessing it's a majority though).

Probably wouldn't go full third Reich comparison yet. There seemed to be at least a thin veneer of respectability and a fear of public shame, at some point. Looking back, I think that was just the enthusiasm of youth... This crap has been going on forever.

We are, in large part,to blame for letting this charade continue. We're either too lazy, scared, bigoted, whatever to demand a sea change in .. well anything. I guarantee that most people can give you endless minutia of their favorite sports team, band, some famous for being famous ding a ling, whatever. Ask basic questions about the government that immigrants have to know to pass their citizenship test, blank stare ... And these people get to vote. They don't know anything so, it's easy for some pundit to blow smoke up their butt, and they happily parrot that biased opinion as their own.

I'm done for now. Thanks for letting me join the rant fest.

Oh yeah, Robie- I understand the utter contempt you feel, don't let it consume you. This has been going on forever, and it's not just here. Look around the world and this same thing is playing out in most countries. I'm not saying check out completely, it's good to be aware. Sometimes we need to step back, take a breath and escape from the horrors of the human condition. Not to mention, they probably just copy and pasted this into our files :)

Hello ETC. Copied and pasted in our files.... LOL!!! That's a good one!! LOL I would expect nothing less from the "Rat Bastards"!!! LOL Let's face it. The 2 party system is a monopoly of rancid bastards who fix the deck before dealing the hand. The politicians get the gold mine and the American public gets shafted. When is the last time you watched a convention? Republican or Democrat? It doesn't matter. All those rabid people waving flags and signs for their candidate. My goodness. It's like a giant circle jerk of zombies!!!!

I try to maintain a sense of humor ETC. But both political parties are putrid, rancid, self serving bastards! I would pay them 4 times what they make and steal (through PAC shakedowns)if after elected they would disappear for 2 to 4 years!!! My anger is with the LIE. That the alphabet soup agencies are doing this for "Our Own Good" because the government fears the American people are too damn stupid to make rational choices for themselves. It's the LIE I resent. And we the American people are having law rammed down our throats under the auspices of "representative" government. What a joke!

Have a great day ETC. It's good to bump into you! Be blessed and smell some beautiful spring flowers. As far as the government? Screw the bozos!!!

Run for office, I hear there's a hundred slots open in the Democratic primary... Or you could run on the Republican ticket, don't need any qualifications there ... Just be ready to sling some serious b.s.:)

By golly. I haven't thought of that. Conscience would dictate I run as a Libertarian though. I can assure all here that my mouth and what I would ultimately emote would keep me from being taken seriously. And if I did pose a serious threat to the 2 party system I have a sneaky suspicion that I would be deleted from the face of the planet. I wish I could run for office though. At least the people would hear what I perceive as the truth! Which means that I would be unelectable. The 2 party system is rigged. But if ILK wants me to run I would do it for the good folks here. I'd even show my tax returns!!! It would be fun being a thorn in the powers that be sides!! Have a wonderful evening.

Be blessed ETC. I enjoy a good chuckle and you just delivered spectacularly!

Here is a letter to the Editor I just came across.

When I read it I thought one of y'all might have written it since it is so well thought out and right on target. IMHO

Thanks for sharing this article! One of the first demonstrations of journalism on the topic. Only it’s NOT presented as journalism at all, but a well written opinion. We are seeing more and more of our side of the story being written outside of special interest journalist articles!

I got a nice reply back from the author of this letter.

Here’s what she wrote, and I’m signing up for the newsletter, since I cannot “follow her” on Twitter. Her reply to my letter of appreciation:

“Hi Laurie,
Thank you! Across platforms we're at EndItForGoodMS, but we haven't begun using our Twitter and Instagram accounts yet. Currently we use Facebook only. But you can also get the details of our in-person events across Mississippi by going to our website (below) and signing up for the newsletter at the bottom of the home page. We don't post RSVP links for those events on Facebook, we only send them to our email subscribers. Would love to have you come! End It For Good works across the spectrum of drug/substance policy, Kratom is one piece of that. Hope to meet you!

another positive article for Kratom legality and research..,this needs to be the new trend and not the FDA/big pharma propaganda machine lies! Lets see if the AP and every other media outlet runs this story like they did with the lies on kratom deaths. highle doubt it.
interesting reading the comments and the end of the story. i'm sure any of those negative kratom stories that are put out get a lot of feedback from angry kratom users.
