What’s The Hold Up
Here is my take on this situation, I posted over on twitter late last month prior to the holidays when I came across this news article showing that Fentanyl is flooding into the country, so much so that the quantities were enough to kill every single person in our country. I am appalled at the lack of action and more over disgusted by the constant criminalization of kratom or any nootropic that is non-fatal that can give people a reasonably safer alternative.
The question I keep coming back to is why is there so little done to combat this, it’s not as if we are limited in resources or geo-political influence, the U.S. has many times before exerted it’s influence in many parts of the world to get it’s desired results. Why are we seeing little or no action in this area. So I ask the following questions quite often relating to this topic
- Where Does It Originate
- Can We Slap Sanctions On That Country
- Why Are We Pretending We Have No Recourse
The Greater Issue
If policy makers are so adamant to criminalize kratom for it’s potential for abuse then I say why, here is a non-fatal plant substance that has proven to work, why do we not want American’s to have something that won’t kill them. I feel this is a logical question to ask, when we know people seek out all types of illicit and dangerous substances to seek comfort from.
It’s quite evident the drug problem is never going away, just as we have done in the judicial system to rectify the wrongs of the past with cannabis criminalization and have recognized as a society that some substances do not warrant such excessive criminal action why is it that kratom is still looked at as a threat. We have the opportunity to help individuals choose better alternatives but instead it appears the powers that be rather have you using heroin, opioids or fentanyl instead.
All of those substances eventually kill, how many people need to die before politicians acknowledge their participation of the perpetuation of illicit and dangerous drug use. Often policy makers know little to nothing about the circumstances of any situation, they maybe briefed but a short briefing will never provide a full picture of the situation. Laws are passed everyday by those who care less about what’s in those laws and how it effects people.
It’s clear and it should be to all of you that you are not the most important constituent to your local leader in office.
I have thought in great depth what we may do to begin changing the course of this tide. In order to stop the inevitable death of so many from these fatal drugs we need to educate, share and inform the masses that there alternatives. There many things people can turn to that may help with pain, stress, anxiety etc that are either a nootropic or all natural plant based solutions and they work.
Changing the perception of the masses can be difficult but it seems even harder to convince law makers to take serious action towards eliminating the means in which these fatal drugs enter the country. I ask why is it so tough to put pressure on the supply chains of fentanyl trafficking when we have seen the big dick that is swung in the name of the United States Of America around the globe for other geo-political reasons.
I concluded that the reason nothing is done is because no one wants to do anything, they seem to be ok with people dying all over the country. They’ll only address it in the press when it serves them to do so but otherwise it’s ignored, all the while something like kratom is put on the list of dangerous for potential for abuse. You have to be stupid or incompetent to make such a conclusion when seeing the amount of deaths from overdoses relating to fentanyl.
