Kratom users celebrated yet again after Florida Legislature failed to begin a crackdown on Kratom. Although this bill failed to pass, an important fight is still underway to bring attention to the positive aspects of Kratom.
There are numerous stories where people rely on Kratom daily. Susan Ash, executive director of the American Kratom Association — and a Lyme disease sufferer — calls it a lifesaver.
“I rarely left the house, I didn’t have a job, I wasn’t doing anything. I felt like I was just lost and sick, and like I was going to be like that forever.”
Kratom is not banned or blessed by the federal government, so hard evidence is hard to come by. The National Institutes of Health warns of rare cases of acute liver damage by recreational use.
