IT IS CRAWLED KRODUM. TWO FDA BANS IT’S IMPORT IN 2014, AND JUST LAST MONTH, THEY SEIZED $400,000 WORTH OF SUPPLEMENTS. BUT THERE’S A LARGE COMMUNITY OF PEOPLE HERE SAYING IT IS SAFE, AND FOR NOW IT IS PERFECTLY LEGAL. IT IS A LEAF THAT IS GROUND INTO POWDER IT IS SIMILAR TO COFFEE. IT GIVES YOU AN AWARENESS, LIKE A GOOD VIBE. TYPE OF EFFECT. LIKE A MILD VERSION OF. THE BO TANTALEANTIVE TO SOUTHEAST ASIA CAN IMPROVE HEALTH AND WELLNESS. WHICH CAN LEAD TO PSYCHOTIC SYMPTOMS AND AN ADDICTION. IT IS THE WORST THING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO A PARENT. THE WORST.

IAN STRUGGLED FOR THREE YEARS WITH TREATMENT FOR ADDICTION AND DEPRESSION. IN 2014, JUST 20 YEARS OLD HE KILLED HIMSELF, JUMPS ON TO, I 95 AFTER A RELATIVE CON FRONTED HIM FOR STEALING CHECKS. TO ME IT FEELS LIKE SOMEBODY KIDNAPPED MY SON, BECAUSE THE DAY THAT THIS BECAME A PROBLEM MY SON WENT MISSING. AND NOW MY SON IS DEAD. PEOPLE WILL SAY THEY WILL TELL YOU IT IS NATURAL.

  1. What a fake news channel just saying what they get paid to say!! Kratom is safer than any pharmaceutical ever made and helps your body! No one in the world has ever died from kratom! They all had mental issues and used pharmaceuticals and other drugs so kratom had nothing to do with them dying! Kratom truly saves lives! Corrupt government

  2. They won't be able to make kratom illegal. It will expose the pharmaceutical company. They want it banned because it stop opiate withdrawals and doesn't get you High. I take it all the time. It's coffee. I talk about it on my channel. This whole entire news story is a paid propaganda ministry
