Webmd.com states kratom offers relief from pain, depression and anxiety. The Drug Enforcement Administration is establishing a public comment period to ban the product. It wants to make kratom a Schedule 1 drug like heroin, LSD  and ecstasy. The commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration warns kratom can become addictive.
