As a Kratom community member, the past couple of weeks have proven our government is getting closer to making a decision on the Kratom ban.
Over the past year, passionate Kratom consumers are doing everything they can to stop this proposed Kratom ban. Currently, the American Kratom Association has formed a petition that every Kratom customer should sign, asking acting Director of the DEA to reject the scheduling of Kratom by the FDA.
We have called, wrote, used Resistbot to contact our representatives in Washington. We have used social media and did our best to educate those around us, but it seems like the negative news press keeps getting worse about Kratom.
Personally, I feel alone in this fight. I know this is a ridiculous thought because there are thousands people who are doing exactly the same things I am, but I guess I feel as if I am flying solo because my voice isn’t being heard.
What would really help is knowing that we had someone in Washington who could represent the scientific facts of Kratom without a predisposed bias against it. To have a person on our side who had the influence, clout, and determination to find the real truth about Kratom; this is what we need.
Dear reader, I have some great news! If you have been feeling like your voice hasn’t been heard either, keep reading. What I’m about to tell you could be the game-changer in this proposed Kratom ban.
Forces to Reckon with in The Kratom Ban
While the FDA has come against Kratom with full force, they did not count on all of the qualified scientists, doctors, and government representatives who were going to step-in to share important facts about Kratom.
The American Kratom Association has done their due diligence during this fight and their challenge to the FDA is clear – “Follow the Science”.
During this past week, you have read articles in relation to different allegations the FDA has made against Kratom, saying Kratom has been the cause of death in many cases. One can scratch their head in wonder and question the reasoning behind these allegations – because they just don’t make sense.
Jane Babin, another force to reckon with during this proposed Kratom ban, took some time to create a report about Kratom to call out the FDA for their kindergarten-like attempts to provide scientific (and biased) evidence against a plant they clearly have an agenda with.
In a recent press conference with the American Kratom Association, AKA Chairman, Dave Herman speaks with Dr. Jane Babin about these very facts. Take some time to watch the video below.
