DEA Will Seize Holistic Plants That Alleviate Opioid Withdrawal

The CDC recently labeled kratom as an “emerging public health threat.” And now the DEA wants to classify kratom as a controlled substance and schedule 1 narcotic. This amounts to a well-orchestrated kratom ban.

Kratom is a plant native to southeast Asia, it is known for its opiate effects on people. M. speciosa, as it is called formally, has been used for centuries as a holistic medicine in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Myanmar. It is used holistically to help neutralize pain. As well, and interestingly enough, it is also used to treat opioid withdrawal.

So let’s play with some logic. The DEA and the CDC are now demonizing kratom because it has become recreational. And now it suddenly has severe side effects? Wait, the DEA and CDC are now demonizing kratom because it is said to holistically help those having opioid withdrawal, which is now a national crisis level. Both of those scenarios make sense, but one makes the most sense. So now we are looking at a kratom ban.

Kratom Ban | Motive by DEA and CDC?

Check this out:

CDC doesn’t mention it.

DEA in 2013 makes no mention of side effects.

Why the sudden condemnation? Could it be that pharmaceutical companies are vying to be the solution to their opioid issue they’ve created? As per usual, pharmaceutical companies create a problem. Society comes down on them for the problem. Pharma lobbies against natural solutions (see marijuana legislation funding). Then pharma comes up with the solution.

This cycle is clear when you look at chemotherapy. Pharma continues to fight the marijuana industry even though many people report that using marijuana during chemotherapy helps them.

The industry to “alleviate” chemo’s side effects is bloated and getting bigger.

Kratom works by attaching to activating opioid receptors. It’s been shown to help relieve anxiety and chronic pain. And many heroin addicts have claimed that it has helped them quit their addiction. It could also be a potential substitute for pharma’s opioids.

But now the DEA wants to place kratom and heroin in the same family. Why? In 2013, there was virtually no energy dedicated to this plant. Now suddenly, it hits the streets as a potential replacement for a pharmaceutical medication and the DEA and CDC go off the rails?

This is exactly why we need to cut off the ability for pharmaceutical companies to lobby politicians and government agencies. This is the result of what is nothing short of “bribes.” By attacking kratom and marijuana, the government backs pharmaceutical agendas and prevents us from ever finding less harmful solutions to degenerative disease issues.

We must hope that President Donald Trump will truly “drain the swamp,” because as it stands, the swamp is alive and well and thriving beyond comprehension.

Chemotherapy is a brutal undertaking. Many of us know people who have had to endure it and the side effects are one of life’s toughest to be a spectator for. It should be a priority to find natural cures for cancer and at a minimum, real viable and holistic applications to help make chemotherapy less rigorous. But if lobbying continues, pharmaceutical companies will continue to battle every possible solution.

So now the DEA will position themselves in a place whereas they can begin to raid and seize crops of kratom. They can jail “distributors” by labeling them as illegal drug dealers because they’ve put in place a kratom ban that justifies it to the public and legalizes it in the eyes of our corrupt court system.
