Last Call: Ask Your Rep For Support of Pocan-LoBiondo Letter
Ask Reps To Support Pocan-LoBiondo Letter To Ensure DEA Reviews Science On Kratom
I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and let me start by saying, Happy New Year!
Let me get straight to the point.
Our team has been working with Congressmen Pocan and LoBiondo for months on a letter to the DEA telling them to follow the science about kratom, not just blindly following the directive from the FDA to ban kratom.
And the FDA has responded with a strong attack on kratom on Capitol Hill. They are blanketing Congressional offices with the same misinformation they fed to the public – and they are telling lie after lie that kratom kills people.
The FDA has gone all in with a push to get the DEA to schedule kratom as a Schedule I controlled substance.
The FDA wants to ban kratom. The FDA wants to strip us of our freedom to make our own choices about our health and well-being.
The FDA wants to force all alternative pain management therapies, including kratom, into the new drug application process to they can regulate it.
It’s about making possessing kratom a crime, and they want to prosecute every American who uses kratom.
We need your help getting other Congressmen to sign onto the letter. The more co-signers, the bigger impact it will make.
The DEA is preparing to publish its Notice to Schedule Kratom that will make every kratom user a criminal. Time is running out for us to act.
There are some in the kratom community who don’t think the DEA will try to schedule kratom. If you think that, you are wrong!
I am asking you to please pick up the phone TODAY and call your member of Congress and ask them to sign onto the Pocan/LoBiondo letter.
The DEA has to know that Congress is watching what they are doing, and they had better base their decision on the science.
That is where we win.
This is our chance to stop the Notice to Schedule Kratom in its tracks, but it will not happen without your help today.
If you do not know the phone number for your member of Congress, you can just call the main US Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask to be transferred to your Representative’s office.
When you talk to the staffer who answers the phone, tell them how important it is to you that your Representative in Congress sign the Pocan/LoBiondo kratom letter to the DEA.
Please, pick up the phone and make the call immediately. Today is a critical day in the fight to protect kratom.
Thank you for your support and I know that with all of us working together, we can keep kratom legal.
