    Who is "they" anyway? We are they too. I bet you could get some literature sent to you on the medical use of it, that is if he/she is willing to look at it, or, just set the literature down in a place that he/she may see it.

    I don't think I was explaining correctly, for things like my degenerative disc disease and oestoarthritis, fibro myalgia, I sometimes have to take muscle relaxers with an opiate in them, granted it feels good to get the relief, but then I start feeling sleepy and its like coming down.

    Has anybody tried Kratom, if so does it relief you pain and make you feel better but with a clear mind? I would really appreciate hearing, because it's legally ordered online, it's still legal. And you drink it mixed in water. I heard the Gray Malay is an anagesic or anti inflammatory.
