Here in the States, the DEA has been wary of kratom users and have cracked down on online retailers. It used to be very easy to obtain the herbal supplements, but with the same old paranoia that the DA has always shown, unfortunately this is no longer the case. I personally have never had any effects from the plant other than a good nights' sleep. It makes me sad knowing that I may not be able to get it at all anymore. Has anyone here suffered any ill effects, either from unjustified substance bans or the plant itself?
