let kratom live

The DEA will this condemn:
Some pain sufferers take Kratom 
Big pharma must reign
They'll rely on chicane 
To keep addicts addicted to them

Author's Note: Kratom comes from a relative of the coffee plant.  The active ingredient is mitragynine.  While this substance acts as a pain killer, it appears much less addictive than the opiates supplied by big pharma.  Thousands of people swear by it, and have used it to wean themselves off of more addictive drugs and alcohol.  Research on mice has shown that at least mice do not become addicted to this substance.  So, naturally, the next step is to ban it!!  Do you suppose the drug companies had something to say to the regulators?  Thanks uncle sam.
