Narconon International Publishes Manual to Help Parents Prevent Use of New Dangerous Drug Kratom

A report in the Journal of Medical Toxicology stated that prolonged use can indeed result in addiction and nasty withdrawal, with some people also suffering from seizures. The withdrawal symptoms are unpleasantly like those of opiates: cramping, abdominal pain, sweating and diarrhea.

"Those who want to use this drug may complain that there needs to be more research but we know already that there are many adverse effects related to the dru
