Your help is needed to protect kratom
By Dave Herman
Chairman, American Kratom Association
This Thursday, the American Kratom Association (AKA) will deliver its statement to the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis.
This date is significant for two reasons.
First, it’s the anniversary of the official Notice of Intent for the Emergency Scheduling of Kratom that was issued by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) that ignited the grassroots movement that ultimately led to the unprecedented withdrawal by the DEA of its scheduling action against kratom. What has transpired over the past year has been truly historic in changing the trajectory of the attack on kratom by Washington bureaucrats.

I am very hopeful that you will join me, if you have not done so already, as a co-signer of this official AKA Statement that asks the Commission to take positive steps to validate the experiences of thousands of Americans on the value of kratom in opioid addiction withdrawal, and the use of kratom as an alternative pain medication therapy that helps them completely avoid the use of chemically formulated opioid medications.
If you have already joined on as a co-signer to this Statement, please accept my gratitude. And please, encourage your family and friends to take this important step in affirming their support for kratom and its beneficial impact on the opioid crisis that is facing America today.
You can forward the link to them, or you can both co-sign and forward the link:

As of right now, we have 4,925 co-signers to the Statement to the President’s Commission. I know that we can get that number up to 6,000 co-signers.
Will you help?
We only have 48 hours to accept new co-signers, so please act immediately.
Second, this statement is critically important for the kratom community to turn the corner on the negative attacks by the FDA and the DEA against kratom. Signing this Statement will make a real difference, and it will help to end the demonization of kratom by these faceless Washington bureaucrats.

As always, we are grateful to the Kratom Warriors for being engaged in this battle.
On another very positive note, the AKA has collected over 25,000 signatures on our SITSA Petition, and I know that will make a huge difference as we continue to fight this horrendous overreach by the Attorney General that threatens to criminalize the distribution and consumer use of kratom.
If you have not yet had the opportunity to sign the SITSA Petition, you can do so at the following link:

I am proud to be part of a movement that includes so many folks dedicated to preserving our rights to make our own decisions about our health and well-being – #IAMKRATOM, #TEAMAKA
Thanks for all you do for kratom.
