Lacking transparency

KELLY Dunn, an EXECUTIVE PRODUCER on this film is the OWNER of Urban Ice the same company featured in this film - this feels like an infomercial.

A few thoughts: The doctor who's wife bought Kratom at a gas station, on the advice of a prostitute, said he knew nothing about Kratom, yet his wife took it while sitting in the car beside him. I question his judgment.

The counselor at Cliffside treatment facility said: If you're on opiates you are a slave, that drug is controlling you". This is a blanket statement and is NOT true for EVERYONE.

Also, the cost was not discussed. For most people who have chronic pain are on disability. Insurance does not cover kratom, so I doubt it would be a good choice for those with a limited income.

I have taken kratom and it's a hit and miss situation. I was told that this is a common complaint. Bottom line is, it comes from overseas -who really knows what you're going to get?

Something's wrong when you can buy alcohol, cigarettes and guns, which all have proven to be lethal. A woman has the right to get an abortion, yet it's a problem to make the choice to treat our pain in a way that is not harmful and gives us our life back. I for one want my right to choose.
