    Stop Unscientific Attacks on Kratom


    Action Spurred by Spate of Unfounded Warnings in GA, VA, AL, CO and UT; “Reefer Madness”-Style Fear Campaign Linked to 2016 DEA Briefings, New Infographic Sets the Record Straight.

    WASHINGTON, D.C.  March 16, 2017  Even though the case for banning or scheduling kratom has been debunked, there continue to be a number of unwarranted warnings about the coffee-like botanical coming from city, county and state agencies across the United States.  In calling for a halt to these unscientific attacks on kratom, the American Kratom Association today issued a new fact-versus-fiction.  Download HERE.

    The local and state warnings appear to be an outgrowth of the one or more briefings conducted last fall by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) with police and health officials across the United States. The AKA has learned of the DEA briefing or briefings, which were held before the point in time when the federal agency put on hold its plan to schedule kratom as an illegal drug.

    Went to committee meeting this week in Raleigh. Was set to be #2 speaker in at least 10 speakers. Committee chose to amend the bill to 18 and older and the send it back to the house.

    My question, Botanical Society rep told us to avoid purchasing from vendors who label " not for human consumption". However, I am told vendors believe the FDA is requiring this label on packaging to avoid confiscation. Botanical rep says we are sending a wrong signal and it is considered fraud if labeled "not for human consumption " and the purchaser were to call or email the vendor for dosing instructions and the vender then tells person to take product internally. What is a reliable vendor supposed to do legally?
