Some dude I know takes Kratom on a fairly regular basis. From what he can tell, at least in the Army, there are regs that do not specifically prohibit kratom, but it's generally understood that any substances like kratom are pretty much off limits. My buddy enjoys the plant and wants to continue, but boy is it risky. Pro: 1. No testing for Kratom as of yet (at least routinely). 2. Great plant, few side effects, positive effects on life Con: 1. Lose military career. My buddy thinks the chances of ever getting caught are very small. He tells me that he orders online from very reputable sources, only does it on weekend, and is otherwise very discreet. He wanted me to ask if anyone has any insight into the actual risks of getting caught. He's a good kid, don't want him to get hurt.
