Anons please consider a dig on the benefits of #Kratom and helping.
FDA has tried to ban it and are apparently targeting it again!
Why? Because #BigPharma can't patent it and profit.
Kratom users desperately need help going up against the smears.
Benefits of #kratom
The FDA, and Scott Gotlieb went after it hard in 2016 sending users underground. They banned groups on FB.
They don't profit off of this amazing plant so it's under attack again.…

Viele Sachverständige & Behörden versuchen leider mit #Wissenschaft #Minderheiten zu diskriminieren. Das ist aber meist keine #Wissenschaft sondern eher #Geschwurbel. Ein kleiner Thread... 1/7
Das ganze hat Tradition. Ich denke über die "Wissenschaftler", die für das Nazi-Regime gearbeitet haben, wurde schon alles gesagt. Aber #Homosexualität beispielsweise wurde noch bis vor ein paar Jahren von vielen Mediziner:innen als Krankheit betrachtet! 2/7
Auch bei #Drogen-Konsum gab es früher schon die absurdesten Gründe Menschen zu kriminalisieren. Ärzte erklärten im 18. Jhd., dass #Kaffee, welcher vornehmlich von Muslimen konsumiert wurde(!), geisteskrank mache & ungesund sei. Dies half das damalige Verbot zu rechtfertigen. 3/7

Here's my 5 min talk I just held at the 44th #ECDD:

<< Dear Expert Committee on Drug Dependence,
my name is Fabian Steinmetz. I'm from Germany and I'm an Eurotox-certified toxicologist and professional risk assessor at an international consultancy.
I speak here on behalf of the NGO #ENCOD, the European coalition for just and effective drug policies.
And now I'd like to speak a few words about #kratom (Mitragyna speciosa).
First of all I'd like to remind the committee that banning #hemp, #poppy & #coca was not very successful and even led to more potent derivatives and synthetic imitations. Also these bans fueled violent crime and human rights violations worldwide.

It's not that the ongoing battle between #tobaccoharmreduction and #tobaccocontrol has taught me this, but it shows how easy it is to claim the moral high ground, act disingenuously, and then point fingers at the people they're stigmatizing. Hypocrisy is all too easy. /1
For sure, we should turn the mirror on ourselves as well, because, as I said, hypocrisy is easy. #thr is a balancing act between the ethical and the pragmatic. By advocating for it and selling vaping products and things like #kratom, I have to be open about risks. /2
At face value, that's not hard. Tell the truth. Embrace the consequences. But the consequences aren't just to me. I don't want to lose a sale but more importantly (for me), I don't want customers to keep choosing the devil they know (cigarettes, opioid painkillers, etc.). /3
