The Essential Laws of Resources Explained

Why Kratom May Become Illegal Even though it has been proven time and time again that kratom by itself is harmless, there still is an ongoing campaign by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to ban it in the country. According to the agency’s announcement back in August of last year, the reason for the planned ban of the herb is because it contains two compounds, namely 7-hydroxymitragynine and mitragynine, both of which have psychoactive properties. Kratom is actually classified as an evergreen tree growing in the tropical regions of Southeast Asia, more specifically in the countries of Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, and Papua New Guinea. The native population in Southeast Asia claims that they have been using the plant for medicinal purposes since the 19th century, which means that unlike the west, they already have previous knowledge about its healing properties. Nonetheless, it’s no secret from those who know the plant and have been using it that its opiate and stimulant properties make it a very popular yet controversial herbal medicine. According to the strong proponents and supporters of the use of kratom, there is no basis for banning the leaves for use because there is no proof whatsoever that they can make the user “high.” They even are quick to add that the leaves provide the most effective pain relief that even traditional drugs and medicine cannot give. Aside from pain relief, kratom is also widely used to treat psychological disorders and issues. In most instances, kratom leaves are turned to powder or consumed in tea form to get the benefits.

The DEA went further by saying that it wants those caught with the possession of kratom to be meted with the same penalties to those who are caught with illegal drugs such as heroin and metamphetamine.

Additionally, the same agency defends its would-be policy of banning kratom as necessary for poison control issues. Does this agency really believe kratom is poisonous to humans? Well, why haven’t we heard any news about hundreds of thousands of people in Southeast Asia dying from kratom poisoning? Well, there’s no blaming anyone if ever kratom officially becomes illegal in this country since no one would want to take the risk of either fearing the falsely made information of it being addictive and poisonous or the fear of getting caught with mere possession of it. But one thing is for sure – kratom and its pain relief wonders are caused by the presence of alkaloids in the leaves. And about that issue of the possibility of getting high when consuming excessive amounts of it, it is safe to say that there is no such thing as overdosing through the consumption of kratom. The explanation is quite simple – once the body feels like it has consumed more than it could accommodate, there’s a natural response inside called vomit. This means that there really is no reason to label this plant in the same league or classification to that of heroin or any other type of prohibited substances.
