WITH 2 WEEKS TO GO: AMERICAN KRATOM ASSOCIATION URGES KRATOM COMMUNITY TO “SPEAK UP NOW!” AND GET 10,000 COMMENTS IN TO DEA
KratomComments.org Generates 3,000+ of 5,400 Comments Received So Far
WASHINGTON, D.C.///November 17, 2016///With exactly two weeks to go before the December 1st end to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Agency (DEA) comment period on kratom, the American Kratom Association (AKA) is seeking today to rally the kratom community to double the number of comments on file from the current level of about 5400 to at least 10,000.
AKA created the www.KratomComments.org website in October 2016 to make it easier for consumers to submit their comments to the DEA. As of noon EST Wednesday, the AKA website had been used to contribute 3,037 of the 5,376 comments logged by the DEA – a very strong 56 percent of the total.
AKA is working hard to get as many people as possible who have benefited from kratom to share their opposition to the classification of the coffee-like herb as a Schedule I drug.
American Kratom Association Director Susan Ash said: “Today, we are telling the kratom community that it’s now or never. This is it. We only have two weeks left to be heard. We know there are tens of thousands of YouTube videos on this topic and that more than 140,000 people signed the White House petition on kratom. We need to hear from those people now. I am personally appealing to those of you who know kratom to take the time to go to KratomComments.org and speak out today.”
