Episode 7 - Special Guest, Reporter Nick Wing
Play • 51 min

Welcome Back! Thank you so much for checking out this latest episode w/ former Huffpost reporter, Nick Wing!!  Nick Wing in my view and many others in the kratom community has been instrumental in helping to keep kratom legal in the US. He has done FOIA requests and uncovered in many instances where the government was reporting deaths caused by kratom or kratom associated deaths, were actually caused by other substances found in the body, serious underlying health conditions or extenuating circumstances. He is a journalist who covered the campaign to ban kratom for years as a reporter at HuffPost. He recently jumped ship to do criminal justice reform advocacy work at a nonprofit, but is still keeping an eye on the kratom world.
