The American Kratom Association issued a call to action asking people to send public comments to the FDA on the position they would take on Kratom before the World Health Organization. Thousands of people have already sent in their stories.
As you may know, the FDA has been working on getting both the W.H.O and the U.N. to ban kratom internationally and classify it as a narcotic. This would mean that getting access to kratom can become almost impossible.
The AKA has responded to this action by urging the FDA to look at the science, and the community to share their stories publicly and bring more awareness regarding this topic from a consumer perspective.
What Can We Do?
The AKA is currently still gathering comments and personal stories from consumers and is encouraging everyone to write to them even if they’ve already submitted it to the Federal Registry.
The goal is to gather as many stories as possible from the community voice and get them to the W.H.O. and the UN expert committee directly for further review. If you want to submit your comment, please visit this page.
Additionally, if you can, you can also spread the news and encourage others to comment as well, to make the kratom community voice a lot stronger!
