KRATOM

I’d love to see more podcast on Kratom and so would many of my friends who are Kratom users. Maybe touch up on the controversy going on around it. It’s always changing. States are always battling to make it illegal. And it’s also saved mine and many other peoples lives so we need real news on it. Not just big media telling us that it’s bad and will kill you.

Fantastic podcast!
