  1. Kratom is not dangerous, it’s not hard to figure out who the fda has they’re best interest for ( pharma???) Kratom does not get you high. It does provide some energy and pain relief. I’ve been consuming kratom for almost 3 yrs now and have never been healthiest 54 yes of age. It’s full of antioxidants and has many other beneficial alkaloids in the leaf. Don’t fall for fda’s propaganda
