Ask Reps to Support Pocan-LoBiondo Letter To Ensure DEA Reviews Science on Kratom

Ask Your Representative to Support the Pocan/LoBiondo Letter To Make Sure the DEA Reviews the Science on Kratom

Kratom Warriors:

The American Kratom Association (AKA) lobbying team has been working diligently on Capitol Hill and we are pleased to announce that Representative Mark Pocan (D-WI) and Representative Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ) have agreed with our request to lead in a bi-partisan letter asking the DEA to review all of the science on kratom before any scheduling decision is finalized.


We are very appreciative to all the kratom groups who are supporting and promoting this letter.

We know the science is on our side.

Kratom does not kill people.  Kratom is not an opioid.  Kratom does not have the same effects as an opioid, and kratom is not an analogue of an opioid.

But the FDA wants to regulate kratom as a drug and they are using inaccurate data on alleged deaths to claim kratom is dangerous. That is not true, and the FDA’s own adverse event database proves it.

But the FDA is not letting the truth get in their way on demonizing kratom, and they are committed to dramatically expanding their regulatory control over a natural and safe botanical that has been used responsibly by consumers for decades in the United States, and for centuries in Southeast Asia.

Please call your Congressional representative immediately and ask them to support the Pocan/LoBiondo letter.  

You can reach any Member of Congress by calling into the main switchboard for the U.S. Capitol, 202-224-3121.  Then just ask to speak to the Member of Congress that represents you.

You can also go to the following link to find your Representative:

When a member of the staff or your representative answers the phone, please be respectful and courteous.

“I am calling to ask Congressman/Congresswoman [insert the name of your Representative] to support the freedom of consumers to use kratom as a part of their health and well-being regimen.

Congressman/Congresswoman [insert the name of your Representative] can support kratom by signing onto the letter from Congressman Mark Pocan and Congressman Frank LiBiondo to the DEA telling them to use all available science in in reviewing the FDA proposal to ban kratom and criminalize any consumer who uses it.

The letter needs to be sent by next week, so Congressman/Congresswoman [insert the name of your Representative] will have to act fast to join as a co-signer to that letter to the DEA.”

You can add a brief personal statement on why you support keeping kratom legal.

Remember, please be respectful in talking with the staffer or Representative.

Also, this letter can only be signed by a Member of Congress (not the Senate), so emphasize how important it is for your Representative to sign his/her name to represent you on that letter.

We need to send a loud message to Congress to stop the FDA from this broad expansion of power. Natural products, botanicals, and dietary supplements should be regulated only when necessary, and only then under the limited authority granted by the Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA).

Please, your help is needed. Call your Representative today!
