Even pot has discrimination to overcome. Sad. I got in an online fight locally with a jerk who “hates driving by that place (dispensary) where lowlifes hang out” (no loitering strictly enforced). I know of Vietnam Veterans using VA prescriptions with amazing success after much experimenting. Many previously unable to conduct normal lives in society if not for medical marijuana.

I won that round but we’re still losing the war due to the pill mentality of past failures the pharmaceutical industry has cast upon the sheeple as having all the answers.

Oh yeah, I mentioned how “I hate having to see those liquor stores and bars where people get inebriated before driving”.
Fortunately the context was better at the time:

I had a discussion with my sister (the nurse) just the other day about the disfunctional relationship between the medical extablishment and pain meds. For years they were really pushing pain meds. All of the docs and nurses were encouraged to make sure no one had pain. Well here we are, now the situation is the opposite and as typical of reactionary behavior, it is swinging to trying to avoid pain medication.

It is very crazy. I really appreciate Kratom and what it is doing for me. I wish I could let my docs know I am taking it, but I won't. I think most patients should stay on the safe side and not really tell their doctors about this. At least until we return to some level of sanity.

Aside from pain relief, I love how Kratom helps me manage anxiety and depression. It really is a remarkable substance. I am often tempted to want to share it with friends or family, but I am not going to. But it sure is a gift for me.

I've read and been told conflicting stories about kratom showing up on a drug screen. Does the normal, run of the mill drug screen that is given to people in pain management places actually show kratom in the system? I mean I know it won't say ,"Hey, there's kratom here!", but does it in fact show up as an opioid in the system? In regards to the pain relief salve I make using kratom, there is so little kratom in one application of the salve that for it to show up in a drug screen I think would be almost impossible. Or am I blowing smoke up my own butt?

It does NOT come up as an opioid on standard tests and is not a standard opioid.

Every pain management test is different due to the increased use of kratom instead of or in addition to other treatments.

This is Very Interesting::-?

This shows you that the Big Pharma Companies Care Only about Money & Care Absolutely Nothing about Human Lives. Everybody is just a Dollar Sign to them :whistle: :pinch: :S :sick:

I seen The Weekly Episode & it just Makes Me So Angry that they could have Stopped Thousands of Deaths by not Approving Oxycontin. Just like Big Tobacco. How many Deaths has Tobacco caused.:sick: Now look at the E-Cig Problem with these Young Kids today. They are Getting Addicted to Vaping because of the Flavors that the Companies are Marketing. You know they do that to Attract Kids with the Different Flavors. It means more Money for them.:angry:

As a former ecig vaping addict-leave my nicotine alone. Haha

Apparently the vaping cartridges were bootlegged and filled with fungicide and insecticide and that’s what caused such problems.

Like the pesticides Layla suggested “3 approved vendors here are selling”, only she had ZERO PROOF AND NEVER REPORTED BACK WITH ANY TEST RESULTS AFTER SUCH ACCUSATIONS.

Wait until you read it in the news. Apparently the cartridges were ill gotten and some idiots are using “alternative” substances to cut costs without knowing what they were doing.
Still rumor, not journalism. Stay tuned

Thanks for the link! I watched that episode of THE WEEKLY last week and suggested Paul might want to use it for his website and he agreed. All just a silly bunch of red tape that nobody cared about and now the entire country is riddled with drug addicted zombies where people used to be :-(

I didn't mean to Demean Vaping it's just that those Companies are Targeting these Teens with all these Flavors & they know that they will get Addicted at their young age. I am sure all those who got Sick from Vaping Cartridges bought off the Street. We have No Idea what they put in them. :unsure: All Cartridges bought in the Stores are Fine I'm Sure because they are Regulated & Controlled to be Semi-Safe to your Health. HA :unsure:
