Kratom

I urge readers to check out this HuffPo piece about Kratom, an herb with a long, long history. The DEA wants to make Kratom a Schedule 1 drug.
But the DEA, in its Federal Register notice, dismisses these applications, seizing on the herb’s addictive potential and declaring that kratom is being “misused” to self-treat chronic pain and opioid withdrawal symptoms.
If the herb has been used for God-knows-how-many years in Southeast Asia with no problems, I would say that the "addictive potential" was pretty low. Question: What the hell is wrong with self-treating chronic pain?

This causes low profits for those wonderful corp. in the kill
(pill) business.
 
Damn, you beat me to it.
