Due to be published in the “Federal Register” on August 31st, 2016 is the DEA’s “Intent to reschedule” the opioids mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine These are the “ingredients” of the plant Kratom and they are placing it into schedule I using the “temporary scheduling provisions” of the Controlled Substances Act.

Speak now or forever hold your peace! You have been notified!
The DEA reluctantly put on hold it’s intentions of placing Kratom into a Schedule I controlled substance category in August of 2016 after having such a backlash of individuals complaining about the proposed plans. However, they are still contemplating that move and we only have until December 1st to make our comments through a website designed for us which states that this is …

An unknown number of people in the U.S. use Kratom daily to ease pain and withdrawal symptoms among other things. It is a “plant” and it belongs to the “People”! It is a part of our unalienable rights!
This is just the latest move by the DEA through the U.N. and “Agenda 21” to claim all of our rights to any substance that can possibly make the pharmaceutical companies more profitable in the future by denying access to this plant by the individual now. In fact, a Patent application, dated 2009 exists already.

Scientific American published an article “Should Kratom Use Be Legal?” in 2013, which features an interview with Edward Boyer, a professor of emergency medicine and director of medical toxicology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, which is a very good article concerning Kratom. It is a good source of information for those who are not familiar with Kratom. Ironically enough, it is the University of Massachusetts Medical School which is the “Assignee” on the above patent. In addition, the following Patents are noted in 2016:

Application of smooth pursuit cognitive testing paradigms to clinical drug development

Please take note of the “LEGAL EVENTS” that are at the bottom of the page at this LINK.
The “drug war” has taken enough of our plants and enough of our lives. We cannot continue to let them regulate us out of every plant of food and medicine which were ever given to us as Our “inalienable rights” as Human Beings and laid out in Our Constitution. I wrote an article concerning this in 2015, entitled, HOW THE UNITED NATIONS IS STEALING OUR “UNALIENABLE RIGHTS” TO GROW FOOD AND MEDICINE THROUGH THE U.N. CONVENTION ON NARCOTIC DRUGS AND AGENDA 21 (LINK), which explains much of how this is being accomplished by our Government(s).
Kentucky Senate Bill 136, in 2016, was defeated and did not take effect this year. However, there are many other states in which it has been rescheduled to a I on a state level. If we do not stop this from happening now, we will never be able to once it is Federally rescheduled. So take a moment and make your opinion heard. Use the Federal website to post your comment now!
