The Internet Turned Kratom, a Medical Plant, Into an Oxy-Adderall Lovechild
At low doses, kratom has a stimulant effect, the station reported, but users had begun taking “high doses, two to three pills at a time, several times a day” and were experiencing the opposite result—something comparable to taking “a fistful of very strong painkillers,” according to an Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics spokesman quoted in the report. Another source, identified as “a man on YouTube,” apparently took “several of the pills” and said it felt like he had taken “40 to 60 milligrams of OxyContin.”


The Kratom User’s Guide
On August 25, 2016, the DEA announced their intention to ban kratom and make it a Schedule I controlled substance. The ban is expected to go into effect September 30, 2016. After that date, it will be a felony offense to possess, distribute, or grow kratom in the United States. As part of its justification, the DEA claims that kratom has “no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, and a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision.” Both of these claims are inaccurate.


All You Need to Know About Kratom
Mitragyna speciosa more commonly known as kratom has been used for over centuries now by the natives of South East Asian countries such as Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. The kratom tree is abundant and a native to these countries. Today, the health and medical world is giving attention to kratom. Independent studies from different laboratories are being conducted to study the effects of kratom to human consumption. In the studies, kratom contains alkaloids that have effects on the human mind. It has stimulating, depressing and intoxicating effects. Pharmaceuticals are exerting some efforts in creating kratom-based medicines such as topicals and pain relievers. The leaves are smoked, chewed and prepared as teas by boiling.


Please do not make Kratom a Schedule I Substance (Sign This Petition)
Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.

This is not true for Kratom, it has been shown numerous times in reports from users to help recovering Opiate addicts, treat pain, combat depression and anxiety, and much more. Deaths that involve Kratom being a persons’ system have always been from the result of mixing Kratom with other drugs, rather than Kratom alone. In states that banned Kratom, Alabama specifically, opiate usage and deaths went up after Kratom was banned in the state. Please stop the DEA from scheduling Kratom as Schedule I, there are many people who will suffer from this.


DEA plans to criminalize kratom, claims herbal supplement is a health hazard
The DEA recently announced plans for banning yet another medicinal herb. Kratom is a herbal supplement that’s grown in popularity over the last few years here in the United States. People who take kratom for therapeutic purposes say it provides natural, gentle relief for a variety of ailments. Capsules filled with the powdered herb are used to treat social anxiety, chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder and other conditions.


Moscato – Postcard from Heaven – Artist of The Day
They originally formed with a sole purpose in mind. What started out as a regular jam session between Jo and Monkey (Adrian) inspired Jo to take the next step and record, not only for herself but with the determination to put together a compilation album of local musicians which would raise awareness for Auto Immune Disorders having all proceeds go to Arthritis QLD.


Discrimination by medicine? Cannabis users have no Second Amendment rights, court rules
Court watchers know that the Ninth U.S. Circuit is one of the most liberal, most-overturned of all circuit courts. So it wasn’t a surprise to many when leftist judges there recently ruled to uphold a ban on gun sales and possession to anyone who uses marijuana for medical purposes – even if it’s legal in their respective state.


How the DEA became the biggest pro-drug, pro-crime gang in America
Historically, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has been an extremely controversial organization. While the brainwashed sheep likely believe them to be a trustworthy group that is preventing our children from getting hooked on drugs, those who have been paying attention should be well aware of the numerous assaults on personal freedom the federal group has been engaging in over the years.


Cannabis found to be possible ‘cure’ for organ transplant rejection
In recent weeks scientists examining the positive therapeutic effects of cannabis have made a number of remarkable findings, including a potential solution for the rejection of transplanted organs. Researchers at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine found that, when given to mice, THC – the active ingredient in pot – seems to aid in preventing the rejection of incompatible organs. This would be huge, because according to Stanford University’s School of Medicine, one-quarter of kidney transplant recipients, and about 40 percent of heart transplant recipients, experience organ rejection within the first year.
