The DEA is Again Making an AlternativeMedicine into a Schedule 1 Classified Drug

Hello my Peers!

If you follow my blog, you know that I believe we all need to find our own positive path to health. While I had never heard of the herbal medicine “kratom”, I now wish I had; before it goes underground. If your like me you desire symptom relief in many forms, and those tools that work best for you should be the least invasive to your physical, social, and psychological systems. It sounds like this may very well be better than western medicine opioids. I am not promoting this herbal therapy, no, I am promoting my discouragement of our governmental system of deciding which types of therapy are best for my body.

That said, I am also a proponent of research and the better good. Research into the benefits of our medicines feels more sketchy over the last decade. Money appears to be more of a motivator then real assistance. Even then, despite solid research,  we take the blame for abuse of medicines like opioids. So, somewhere in this new scheduling there appears to be a contradiction.

Mad always, do your own research before choosing your view.
