I have had twelve serious surgeries, the first when I was only 26. I have been given every drug imaginable. When my insurance ran out and I could not psy BIG PHARMO I had to turn to illegal drugs. I am taking Kratom now. When it works I'll let you know!!

Anyone who would consider banning Kratom should spend at least a few minutes to learn from all of the people who's quality of life is being greatly improved because of this safe, natural, organic plant that improves their health and relieves chronic pain.

Making kratom illegal will only guarantee more prisoners, ruined lives and absolutely no drop in the use of the plant, it just ensures that drug cartels will have one more thing to make a dollar.

Any law prohibiting the free use of kratom would be unjust to the overwhelmingly responsible users who consume it for legitimate reasons.

Kratom is no doubt, a more favorable option than opiate/opioid pain-killers. Please, do not deny so many people a chance to be free - just because a few people abuse their freedoms. Please listen to the people that know this plant well.

Kratom helped me withdraw from opiates. I also use it for pain relief instead of turning back to opiates. Banning Kratom without research is ignorant & stupid. Authorities should not take away our rights to self medicate whilst causing no harm to others.

To ban Kratom would be to the detriment of many people suffering from chronic pain, depression, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and many other conditions. It offers a better quality of life without many of the side effects associated with pharmaceutical drugs.

It's so much better for chronic pain than anything else on the market. Opiod pain meds work, but the withdrawals from them are not worth it. Kratom does not have these, which makes it much more beneficial.

It's really funny how now that big pharmaceutical is interested in developing the active alkaloid in kratom into a possible alternative pain killer for market its safety and legality are being called into question.

Freedoms are stolen from the people everyday all over the world. I really hope kratom won't be one of them. The goal of governent agenices is to make people slaves, which they are doing. At least let people keep the kratom so they won't be so miserbale doing it...
Devin Lor United States
The best, safe, non-addictive and non-toxic painkiller! Helps me with my back pain. Making kratom illegal will only make people lean towards more dangerous painkillers.
Michael Grant USA
kayt vigil USA
Kratom has kept my physical pain and depression at bay for the last year. If I don't have it, I experience NO withdrawl symptoms
whatsoever. This proves that it does NOT share the same addictive and harmful qualities that pharmaceutical opiates have!
Dan Malinowski USA
Kratom is a very useful herb, and is great for natural pain relief. Its abuse potential limited, especially when compared with most opiod pain relievers.

Kratom is a safe viable alternative to both pain killers and sleep aids. Banning will only lead to more chemically derived medications that will hurt us and our children in the long run.

I am a graduate student with a 4.0 average, and I benefit from having Kratom when I need it. It would be a great disservice to many Americans who rely on the beneficial effects of kratom to allow any legislation against it.

Kratom is a savior for people with pain who don't want to destroy their liver with tylenol or become addicted to opiates. Just because some people chose to use it irresponsibly does NOT mean that everyone should lose the right to make their own choice.
