Attention New Jersey residents:
Please write and call the members of the Law and Public Safety Committee
Assembly Bill A3281 Criminalizes manufacture, sale, and possession of substances containing kratom. This is the same bill as the one Ronald Dancer introduced last year, just re-introduced and sent to committee.
To the members of the Law and Public Safety Committee regarding bill A3281,
My name is ________, I'm a __-year old _________ from _________ and I'd like to voice my concern about A3281 which have been referred to the Law and Public Safety Committee:
-How you came to use kratom (did you learn about it in a chronic pain support group, etc?)
-What ailments you suffer, what treatments haven't worked (prescriptions, surgery, etc.), how long you've been dealing with your condition, how long you've been using kratom and how many/what medications you've been able to quit.
-What kratom means to you (has it given you your life back, have you gone back to work, can you play with your, exercise or travel, etc., something anecdotal about why kratom is important and should be available).
-Conclusion: Kratom is a safe alternative to pharmaceutical drugs with important medicinal uses and has changed my life, so I'm asking you to please vote against A3281.
If you have questions about kratom, please visit www.americankratom.org. Thank you for your time and service to the state.
***Please be professional and polite, keeping it as short as possible. Their aides are probably reading these and the moment they notice anything irrational, disrespectful, or get lost due to length, they'll just move on.
