This is just a continuation of the war on drugs. It will give the government more power to abuse and only makes the problem worse. Adults in this country should be able to choose what goes into their own bodies, which includes natural botanicals like kratom. This would destroy the lives of chronic pain patients even more than the current situation, which is already horrible. At the very least the Pocan/Gosar amendment needs to be passed. The focus needs to shift to rehabilitation for addiction, why can’t our leaders see what everyone else does?
