Today I have acquired a new fire in the fight against the proposed Kratom ban.
Over the past few weeks, the FDA has stepped up their slander campaign against Kratom. While you already understand the basis of what’s going on, what you might not realize is the sneaky ways this is affecting our fight.
I want to talk about the one of the major ways that the FDA is bringing the fight to us, and how we can eliminate this force, and beat them at their own game.
But, first, we have to fully understand what they’re doing in, order to beat them.
The War of Public Perception in the Kratom Ban
Have you noticed there has been a lot of local news reporting the worst possible news about Kratom to uneducated people. This is probably happening in your own town or city!
A lot of local areas are witnessing this campaign and it looks a lot like this: (Please note, I will not be linking to these reports as it will give them more clout online, but you can search these reports for yourself).
- Philadelphia reports Kratom deaths are rising.
- Officials link Kratom with two Chester County Deaths.
- Kent County announces the deaths surrounding Kratom.
Stories like this are breaking all over the local areas in the country. In fact, some of them are so ridiculous; for instance, one story in Grand Rapids, MI, says Kratom is tied to five deaths in this town. Take a look:
The real truth of these autopsies stated that the deceased not only had Kratom in their system, but a long list of other harmful substances.
However, since “Kratom” is in the headline, it must be the cause of these deaths, right?
This is the ongoing war in the Kratom ban. The FDA wants to manipulate public opinion, they want to sway the good people of America in your local area and ‘warn’ them about the dangers of Kratom.
These uneducated people can’t help thinking Kratom is bad. Let’s take a step back and look at this scenario from their perspective. What would you do if you had no idea about a substance, and one day you saw on the news that this particular substance was killing people?
You would immediately draw a negative opinion of it, wouldn’t you?
This is the strategy of our FDA. They want to hide the true facts in relation to Kratom by manipulating public opinion of this plant.
But we can fight it.
How To Beat The FDA At Their Own Game
The way you fight ignorance is by using indisputable facts,scientific evidence, and objective data. This also means introducing the subject of Kratom to whomever will listen.
In the past, we have stayed in the shadows, comfortably numb to our situation and thankful no one was messing with our routine.
Now it’s time we all took the opportunity to let everyone know the importance of this plant that all of us love so much.
Someone said this on Twitter the other day, take a look:
Someone found this comment on a video. Please share. #IAmKratom #Kratom Share the facts with family, friends, representatives, and people you meet. Kratom has given us so much, we need to protect it. #KratomSavesLives @TheKratomAssn pic.twitter.com/cK5uDFtjm3

We cannot use good energy and waste it on wondering WHY the FDA is doing this to the Kratom community. Furthermore, the FDA consists of doctors and scientists who already understand the benefits of Kratom, there is another reason they’re trying to force a Kratom ban.
We can’t worry about why they’re doing it, however, we can do something about HOW they are trying to accomplish this.
Currently, we know their game-plan is to scrutinize Kratom while the American public looks on. They are counting on the fact that your local news media will blindly report inaccuracies on Kratom to your neighbors.
Today, take some time to educate yourself on all of the irrefutable facts. I’m going to give you everything you need to know and understand about the Kratom ban and all of the scientific material you’ll need to explain this to someone who will listen.
If the FDA wants to go to the public to fight, then we will make sure we counter every accusation with facts and evidence.
Here you go…
- 8-Factor Analysis – this is what the DEA will use to schedule a substance. This study has already been completed. If they use the facts in this analysis, Kratom will not be banned.
- A Botanical, Phytochemical, and ethnomedicinal review of the genus Mitragyna Korth.
- A Review on Herbal Plants Showing Antidepressant Activity
- American Botanical Council Letter to Withdraw the Kratom Ban
- Acute Toxicity Study of Standardized Mitragyna Speciosa
- CDC Report on Salmonella Infections Linked To Kratom
- Botanical Legal Defense on the Kratom Effects
- Testimony of Dr. Jack Henningfield on the Factors Related to the Abusive Potential of Mitragyna Speciosa
- Dr. Jane Babin’s Letter To The DEA To Withdraw Their Intent To Schedule Kratom
- An Analysis of Experiences of Kratom Users
- Follow the Science of the American Kratom Association
Here is a recent Tweet from Scott Gottlieb:
We’ll share these local media reports, like this one below and the other 3 shared today (all from the last week) to help consumers stay informed of the risks. We continue to advise that Kratom is an opioid, can be addictive, and has no proven medical use https://t.co/nWtqDD4T7S

As you can see, even the Director of the FDA is trying to push these local campaigns against Kratom down the throats of good people who don’t understand this plant.
Public opinion can be marred by these slanderous accusations, but you can stop it.
The FDA thinks a smear campaign is the best route to fight the Kratom community in this Kratom ban. However, what they aren’t counting on the Kratom community being educated and informed about the evidence and facts surrounding Kratom.
You have the opportunity to get to know Kratom on a very intimate level, and it’s imperative you do! It’s time to come out of the shadows and announce to the world your love for Kratom. Remember, uncontaminated Kratom, Kratom which is pure and lab tested (done by responsible vendors across the country) is safe to consume.
Spread the message.
