Denver bans kratom

Quote:


Denver Environmental Health's recently announced*prohibition on the sale of kratom for human consumption*is making news and stirring controversy from coast to coast. Among those concerned is David Kroll, a onetime cancer researcher and Colorado pharmacologist now working in North Carolina as a freelance health journalist for*Forbes, among other outlets. Kroll is also a nationally recognized*expert*on kratom, as well as the historical roots of the governmental and financial forces currently lined up against it, and in his view, "banning it is going to hurt more people than it's going to save. That's my scientific prediction."

To be fair, kratom is fucking horrible. It binds to the same receptors as heroin.

How Kratom works

First let’s take a quick look at how kratom works. Kratom contains a number of active components, so-called alkaloids, of which mitragynine is believed to be responsible for most of its effects. Mitragynine is an opioid agonist, meaning that it has an affinity for the opioid receptors in your brain. These receptors influence one’s mood and anxiety. Mitragynine binds to these receptors and improves your mood and gives a euphoric-like feeling, just like opiates such as heroin and opium. The big difference between kratom and opiates is that mitragynine prefers so-called delta opioid receptors, while opiates bind to mu opioid receptors. At higher doses, mitragynine increasingly stimulates mu receptors. This is believed to be the reason that kratom has a stimulating effect at lower doses and narcotic effects at higher doses, and that it is not (strongly) addictive.

Marijuana and hashish are LEGAL in Denver. So why in the hell would anyone take Kratom? What the hell is Kratom? Shit sounds dangerous, like something from another planet, or frozen feces falling off a jetliner. Or like PCP which makes people crazy and wanting to fight the Devil.

In Denver, you can get single malt and hashish. So why fool with the bad dope?

Jon takes it because he has terrible R.A. pain, and it's getting harder and harder for him to get enough Oxycodone here in CT to ease his pain. It is a pain easement. It's not as good as Oxy - but it helps. You're only allowed 8 caps a day.
