Keep Kratom Legal!: Essential Information for Activists and Enthusiasts

The following article is being shared with permission by a prolific kratom enthusiast who wishes to remain anonymous. As many of our readers very well may know, the DEA has lifted their emergency ban on kratom and are holding a comment period through December 1st. There has been an overwhelming response from kratom fans, and we hope this trend will continue up until the last hour we can be heard.

Please take time to read this post and post a comment of your own to save this miracle plant before it's too late.

The original post can be found on subreddit r/kratom.

Please share far and wide! :)
If you're feeling overwhelmed, here's the short version on how to comment on the federal register regarding kratom. (**Includes instructions on commenting anonymously.)

  2. Fill in your information (if you want to be anonymous, put "anon" in all the fields except phone and zip. Then put 555-555-5555 for your number and use any zip code in your state)
  3. Write a comment from the heart. We simply do not want to use the words "treat", "medicine", or "cure" because substances with those descriptions fall under FDA control. Kratom has NOT been proven to treat or cure anything and it really is not a medicine. So this is just a way of making sure we are being factual in our description.

P.S. Another related anonymous source has mentioned that the media is reading these comments and are "amazed at the response."
