To the Honorable Members of the Health and Human Resources Committee

My name is ________, I'm a __-year old __________ from _________ and I'd like to voice my concern about HB2526.

-How you came to use Kratom

-What ailments you suffer from, what previous treatments didn't work (prescriptions, surgery, etc.), how long you've been dealing with your ailments, 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 kids on the floor, 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 HB2526.

It is very important that you send a copy of your e-mail to, and call your own Representative.  To locate them, scroll up and click on the appropriate link.

*Please be concise and polite, keep it as short as possible, or you will quickly lose their attention*
