CHAPTER ONE: Florida Rep. Kristin Jacobs' Kratom Crusade
Over the course of the past three legislative sessions in Florida, Rep. Kristin Jacobs claims that kratom, a plant that is related to coffee and grows naturally in many parts of Asia, was responsible for this young man's choice to take his own life. I would argue that even if that were true, there are five million Americans who are taking kratom now to improve their quality of life and to PREVENT themselves from thinking about suicide.
