Hey I love your show, but you seriously need to get some educated opinions on kratom. For real. Kratom helps a lot of people who are dealing with chronic pain and other issues. It's not something you take to get "high", it just doesn't work like that. Maybe dude was taking extract, not too sure, but seriously, some major education is needed on this subject
