There are some ignorant people out there. Here’s the deal one kratom is not an opiate. It’s a leaf not poppy juice. Two if your kids are using it for anything but their rightful use they are doing it with other drugs, and don’t blame others who use it. Three just because it’s not regulated doesn’t make it scary it’s actually better because the pharmaceutical companies don’t have a death grip on it. If you know anyone who has overdosed with it in their system it’s because they took it with a harder drug or drank. Don’t be ignorant and research it so you don’t look stupid or like the media.
