American Kratom Association Needs Help

I received the below listed email from AKA. If you are not familiar with them, they are the main advocacy group for our industry dedicated to keeping kratom safe and legal. It is an important read. We need to stop it here....what will they come for next?

Mississippi State Senator Charles Younger has announced he is filing a bill to ban kratom soon.

Maryland State Senator Ronald Young has already filed SB 147 to ban kratom, and that bill is fast-tracked for a hearing on Wednesday. A companion House bill to ban kratom was filed with 7 co-sponsors.

And Missouri State Senator Robert Onder has filed his kratom ban bill - SB 765.

I’m not going to sugarcoat this…the threat we are facing from the onslaught of proposed kratom bans around the country is real...the FDA is not giving up.

The FDA is working overtime to spread their unfair and vicious attacks on kratom – and they want to make you and me criminals for consuming kratom.

I won’t stand for any of this, and I need you to stand with me today to send a clear and unmistakable message to the FDA and their attack dogs who are hell-bent to rob us of our right to make our own choices on our health and well-being.

In the last two weeks, our lobbying team has informed us of several proposed bills that would ban kratom in several states around the country – and more may be coming. Proposed bans in New York, Pennsylvania, and Florida are just a few more we are expecting this year.

The legacy of former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb hangs over most every capital building as his misinformation on kratom still gets circulated around. He spent years working to demonize kratom to Health Departments, Boards of Pharmacy; and law enforcement agencies in virtually every state in America.

Trust me, the enemies of kratom see the progress we are making with the Kratom Consumer Protection Act, and they are fighting back.

I have told the AKA Board of Directors that we can go ahead and hire the necessary lobbyists because I know the kratom community will step up and help out.
