In Wisconsin, Indiana, Tennessee, Vermont, and Arkansas, Kratom is Illegal
For quite a large number of people, Kratom is an incredible plant that offers a lot of health benefits. Due to the chemical compounds inside the leaves of this plant, Kratom can provide pain relief, the strengthening of the immune system, a significant boost in energy, better sleep, and a number of other benefits that can greatly improve our health. Because of its high medicinal value, it has been used for ages to help people treat chronic pain, chronic stress, depression, anxiety, and diabetes, as well as some other health problems.
However, there is a lot of controversy about this plant, which is why some countries throughout the world passed laws to make it illegal. The primary reasons for doing so are lack of information and negative marketing done by big pharmaceutical companies. They are spreading misconceptions about Kratom, because, if the truth comes to light that it is actually not addictive and not harmful to our health, big companies would lose quite a lot of money, since their sales of expensive drugs will significantly drop.
Where Is Kratom Illegal?
Kratom is legal in almost every country across the globe, where people can use it freely to treat a number of health conditions they may have. However, there are those countries that either consider it dangerous and addictive or are merely influenced to think so by Big Pharma, so they list Kratom among the most highly-addictive drugs and have made it illegal.
Kratom is illegal in Thailand, Australia, Myanmar, and Malaysia. It is actually indigenous to Thailand, but has been banned by their government for more than 70 years now. Opium was a big thing in Thailand at the time and the opium business suffered a lot due to the popularity of Kratom, since the plant has a stimulating effect on the mind and body.
Kratom is legal in almost every part of the United States, with the exception of Wisconsin, Indiana, Tennessee, Vermont, and Arkansas, where it was legal until quite recently. Now, the State of Arkansas categorizes Kratom as a Schedule 1 drug, meaning a highly-addictive drug with no medical value.
There are some countries across the world which haven’t outlawed Kratom, but have instead imposed harsh regulations on it. Just as the State of Arkansas, they have labelled Kratom a Schedule 1 drug. Those countries include Finland, Denmark, Germany, Romania and New Zealand.
We Need to Keep Kratom Legal
There are many people who need Kratom in order to take care of their health due to different health conditions they are suffering from, and making it illegal for general and recreational use is making it quite difficult for them. No words can describe how awful it is that some people can no longer treat themselves with this incredible plant due to the misinterpretation and misinformation that led to Kratom being outlawed in some countries.
Kratom should be legal everywhere in the world, because it offers a number of benefits for our health. It can help treat many diseases and give people the freedom to live a happy life. It is completely natural, and it provides non-harmful addiction treatment, as opposed to the widespread misconception that it is actually Kratom that is addictive. The truth of the matter is that Kratom is no more addictive than coffee or sugar, so there is absolutely no reason for it to be banned from use.
Many studies can confirm this claim and can prove that Kratom truly does have a high medicinal value. They can confirm that using Kratom for a variety of conditions, from chronic pain or diabetes to addiction recovery, is actually quite effective and results in improved health conditions for users.
Anyone interested in legalizing this amazing plant and making it possible for everyone to use it freely should speak up and join the fight. Everyone should take action and stop Kratom from being criminalized. It is paramount to raise awareness about this plant’s health benefits and show everyone just how great it is. H,opefully, our voices will be heard and everyone across the globe will be able to enjoy the incredible wonders of Kratom.
