This report angered me. The reporter wrote such a twisted article. It's sad that a life was lost but I'm with Paul a toxicology report is needed before you burn down kratom as the source.

The media aren't providing the answers for intelligent people to come to a sound conclusion, so why bring it up? We, at the American Kratom Association, discussed it openly and thoroughly as soon as the story broke (3 weeks after his death). Anyone who is concerned about keeping kratom legal, the AKA is a good group to join and get plugged in to the planning for campaigns to keep your state legal.

I often do a blog update on what's going on in the legal situation, wherever the action currently is. When we know more about the Eden case and where the Georgia legislature wants to go on this matter, I'll probably write about it, either here at ILoveKratom.com or at the AmericanKratomAssociation.org.


Just read this article, much of what is wrote in the article is plain ridiculous from Yahoo.

First, let's point out that they routinely refer to Kratom, as an "Drug", which we all know is an incorrect labeling of an natural plant. Let's not throw phenibut under the bus neither, it has medical purpose when used properly.

Here is the most damning statement who is read by the mother of this 22 year old kid.

---shared her son’s suicide note during an interview with WSBTV. “‘Mom and Dad, I loved you very much,’” she read. “‘Please know there was nothing you could do. I tried everything. I’ve ruined myself with drugs.”---

OK, timeout.. His own Mother and his own words just admitted he an substance abuse problem! Paul, I believe you nailed it with your question... Where are the toxicology reports!???

While suicide is very sad and troubling topic, We are talking about a 22year old kid who was in the Navy Intelligence Program (something that many young people are unable to succeed in), and whom also had a problem with drug addiction, by his own words.

Very Frustrating to read, as an substance abuse counselor myself...I believe the Mother is trying to cover up her son's addiction to other and more powerful drugs!

May God give this family peace without having to find someone to blame.

Hey everyone,

I don't know if it's been posted about already but I didn't see anything from a quick scan through recent posts. I read today that a college student from Georgia (John Eden) took his life recently, and Kratom is going to be taking the blame yet again. I'd imagine that illegalization in GA is going to be a hot topic here real soon. I'm just attempting to let everyone know so you're prepared. I've seen we've got some unofficial spokespeople for Kratom on here from the posts about other events like this, so I figured you all would like to know.

You can read about it here: www.yahoo.com/parenting/whats-kratom-parents-speak...es-119458538452.html

Or just a search of "John Eden Kratom" on Google will bring up a few more articles.
