  1. This podcast reminds me of an atrossity I heard about about two months ago. The veteran’s affairs guys, sorry I don’t know the official name, have begun cutting veterans off their opiates, regardless of how long they’ve been on them. This happened to a relative of mine,one of my uncles, and I turned him onto kratom. It didn’t work for him, so he’s been taking medical marijuana instead. This is in texas, so I’m surprised he’s been able to get it. The excuse the veteran’s guys use is that only people in stage 4, in otherwise life ending, agony will get opiates, all others should take over the counter stuff. My uncle’s doctor actually told him to take aspirin, ibuprofen and aleve, they work great opiates don’t work bla bla. What a travisty. I use kratom for years, and thank god every single day that I have it. Military families have every right to take kratom or any other substance that helps their stress. Us civilians have no idea what they go through when abroad, so cannot expect them to simply put their stresses in a box and never look at it again when they come back.
