Kratom has been dominating the news lately. The argument is whether or not to keep it a legal food supplement or move it into a scheduled category of narcotics. We don’t seem to be hearing anything in regards to a compromise. A compromise which satisfies all parties concerned.
What we’re seeing now is knee jerk reaction which is not uncommon to food supplements. Many may be unaware of how many household items have gone through this. For example, Ginko Biloba had its challenges. Most vitamin supplements that we all buy weekly at the local market have had challenges. Don’t believe what you hear, verify my last statement by going here.
There are 2 sides to every debate, in regards to Kratom it can be quite confusing. On one side, you have those who seem to be regurgitating misinformation instead of doing their own research and writing about it. On the other side, you have responsible professionals with journalistic integrity, covering a story from an unbiased stand point. This is something that we see every day. A story begins in a small town with huge viewership potential, it’s covered by a local news source which gets a call from a state or national source and the next thing you know, you have a national news story which has been aggregated through the chain, straight to your favorite mobile app. The real challenge is filtering through real, fake and copied or trimmed down news, which is made available to us, in many cases, through a Social Media post.
