I was seeing my doctor today and was asked what substances I use. I mentioned that I take kratom. She then proceeded to tell me that kratom is a “synthetic” drug with chemicals added to it that has killed many people.
I don’t expect everyone to be pro kratom and would have been satisfied if she just viewed it as a plant that can have addictive properties, but what she told me instead was an outright lie. It’s mindboggling how even medical professionals can be more misinformed about a simple plant than the average person.
