Anything Is Possible! We can be hit by a car today, too. Somebody WILL BE hit by a car. Me? Hopefully not. Hopefully not you, either.

I recommend annual blood work with a primary care physician to monitor any ongoing health issues of concern.

People with limited livers OBVIOUSLY have to adapt to life differently than those with average livers. If you have concerns about your liver, please have your doctor run specific tests for that.

Please do not ABUSE THE HELLOUTTA the plant. It doesn’t make it more helpful. It just causes digestive problems and leads to needing an ALTERNATIVE to kratom. Please be kind to yourself and use common sense with any substance including those donuts

Good article, thanks. What’s concerning though is the mention of possible liver damage? I’ve read that’s not true.

Wow its actually 18 yrs since a file cabinet fell on this poor soul and changed her life forever. Here is a link to the article and there is a short video in it. She really worded her statement well.

Yeah, I wish history proves that we learn from history.

That would be nice.

My head is up and this was a positive article. Currently do not feel we are heading toward prohibition.
I was just pointing out that prohibition never works and makes things more dangerous for people's health.

Chin up, Jayisk, please. The webmd article quoted Gottlieb saying , “it’s helping an unmet need” and it “might make people sick”.

Cup half full, my friend. This is NOT going to go the way of prohibition.

I missed the woman on the cot at those steps. I have often wondered how well we can put a rally together with our barely being functional SOME DAYS even with kratom fully legal.

Bless you for telling me about the heroic woman on the cot! What an inspiration!

Good article but obv. this wont get the attetion of news feeds like the b.s. "kratom related to death" headlines. Which most people just read the headline and not the article. Once you click on the article it says the person was a poly-substance abuse user and had kratom in their system which did not cause the death.
i like what they wrote about if it does get outlawed. this happens over and over again with prohibition. it is happen now to the chronic pain patients that have been responsibly using their pain meds for yrs and cant function without them. These poor souls are caught in the middle of doctors scared to continue to write scripts for pain meds...,or lower and sometimes stop the patients refills on pain meds.

Not sure if anyone seen the women who had to lay on a cot in front of congress while discussing the issue with people with chronic pain management and the issues i just mentioned. She had a file cabinet at work fall on her like 10 yrs ago and still cant sit up for a long period of time. that is why see had to lay there on a cot.
but this is exactly what will happen if kratom is banned in the US.., always happens:

"As we've seen in the past (many, many, many times), a legal ban will have two primary consequences: Firstly, it will send the drug underground where quality and purity can't be controlled, and it will support violent and illegal organizations. This was the impact of prohibition, the impact of criminalizing cannabis and the impact of scheduling essentially every other drug that had entered the mainstream. Secondly, those who want to use it will either continue buying it through those illegal channels, meaning more people will get sick and hurt in the process while more criminal organizations will profit and fewer people will benefit, or they will find yet ANOTHER still-legal option and we will go through the whole process again.

This is how criminalizing marijuana leads to spice and K2 and it’s how controlling amphetamines created amphetamine-like “bath-salts.”
