Ok, I’ll try to just say something that hasn’t already been said.
the price we pay to fund groups like the DEA and FDA so those individuals who are not even elected can criminalize large portions of the population by placing any type or number of compounds or even wild plants, trees and fungi naturally occurring in nature on a magical “schedule substances list” therefore making them illegal to study, possess, grow, or even consume. Marijuana, Kratom, Mushrooms etc should not be legal because of any medical benefits or because of a comparison to exempt non scheduled drugs like alcohol or cigarettes that by the FDAs own criteria should be schedule 1 banned narcotics with felony consequences. Every substance no matter it’s medical or non medical benefit should be legal because we SHOULD own our own bodies but we don’t. Hence taxation. #keepkratomlegal
