Kratom Remains Legal for the Time Being

Are we dreaming?... Did the D.E.A. really postpone the ban on kratom?

Pinch yourself and you'll find that you aren't. This goes to show just how powerful the kratom community has grown, just how much support we have managed to garner behind this miracle tree. If anything, this is a true testament to how positive an impact kratom has had on such a massive regional scale.

Judging by the 141,000+ signatures as of the time of this writing according to a whitehouse.gov petition initiated on August 30th, 2016 (a mere single month before the scheduled ban), kratom has helped a hell of a lot of people. Having been in charge of The Secret Garden Guide for close to 1.5 years, I have had the great pleasure of getting to know many individual’s stories—those who have found solace in kratom's capacity to improve their quality of life in numerous ways.

On a personal level, many of my conversations have been with those who have found kratom beneficial for alleviation in respect to a multitude of medicinal/psychological conditions treated by most doctors: social anxiety, depression, chronic pain, alcohol and opiate addiction, and sleep disorders to keep the list short. Conversely, there is very little anecdotal or scientifically backed evidence to support detractors’ claims that kratom poses a legitimate threat to the well-being of our society.

On a more somber note, it is worth making clear that nobody has "won” this so-called war. This will continue to be an ongoing struggle until the impending ban is either lifted, modified, or instated. Also worth clarifying is the fact that not only U.S. proponents, but international voices have fought commendably against a battle which should have never commenced. The spirit of this society must continue to dispel the demonization of one of nature’s grand gifts.

I strongly encourage everyone to persevere in making any/every effort possible for the preservation of kratom. Below are some helpful links:
