Title: DEA intends make Kratom a controlled substance
Post by: mateo on September 09, 2016, 05:59:07 PM
The DEA announced on August 30th their intent to make alkaloids of the Kratom plant schedule 1 substances beginning September 30th. I don't think I need to go into how ridiculous this is and it's likely the FDA behind it all, creating a monopoly for the pharmaceutical industry. Regardless, I hope everyone here is doing their part to fight this. Please use the links to sign a petition to the white house and send a letter to the senate.

This is one of the results of corruption in govt. Pay for play or whatever you want to call it. Big pharma pays money in bribes and we pay for it big time
