FDA reports 44 “Kratom Related” Deaths Between 2011 and 2017. That’s 44 total over a span of 7 years
NOTICE: Almost ALL of these deaths involved multiple potentially lethal substances according to toxicology reports
Nine of these 44 kratom-related deaths occurred in Sweden in 2011 and 2012
NOTICE: ALL 9 involved a mixture of kratom with other opioids
Let’s consider the Alternatives to Kratom
Prescription opioids kill 46 people EVERY DAY in the USA!
That’s Tens of Thousands per Year according to the Center of
Disease Control and National Institute on Drug Abuse!
CONCLUSION: Prescription pain medications and heroin kill tens of thousands of Americans per year. Do the Math! Kratom serves as a life line away from pharmaceutical opiates and more dangerous street drugs for tens of thousands of people who have used it for many years (without harm). According to four scientific research surveys, scheduling it would force these people to either return to more dangerous alternatives for their pain and/or be labeled as CRIMINALS and incarcerated if they continue to use it. Kratom should NOT be made a Schedule one substance just because of the very few who have managed to abuse it with other drugs.
THE BOTTOM LINE…
MOST PEOPLE USE KRATOM TO GET OFF THESE DANGEROUS PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS AND ILLEGAL
STREET DRUGS BECAUSE ACCORDING TO THEM IT WORKS AND STATISTICALLY IT’S MUCH MUCH SAFER!
