We expose a controversial new article “Help Stop an International Kratom Ban”, which may cause upset amongst the Kratom community in the US.
The American Kratom Association has released a potentially controversial article “Help Stop an International Kratom Ban“, bringing some cause for concern. The American Kratom Association is committed to restoring full consumer access to kratom and to preserve and protect the freedom of consumers in the US to make their own choices on their well-being and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
The 328 page article examines the high points and low points of Kratom and the government, in the pursuit of providing Information to readers about the fight to keep kratom legal for kratom users, military veterans who use kratom to assist with PTSD, followers of homeopathic medicine, and even CBD enthusiasts. In a very typical manner, a certain element of the article is set to spark discontent amongst kratom communities in the US by exposing how the government is attempting to silence them and limit their access to kratom worldwide.
Below is a portion of the piece, which neatly exemplifies the controversial element:
The American Kratom Association (AKA) filed a complaint on Friday, August 6, 2021, in US District Court for the District of Columbia against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS); HHS Secretary Becerra; the (FDA); and Acting FDA Commissioner Woodcock. “The FDA received notice of the proposed WHO Expert Committee Pre-Review of kratom on June 10, 2021, but deliberately delayed the required Federal Register Notice soliciting public comments for 42 days until July 23, and then required public comments to be submitted no later than August 9,” said Mac Haddow, Senior Fellow on Public Policy for the AKA. “That provides scientists and the public only 17 days – 11 business days – to prepare and submit comments. That is unreasonable, violates requirements of the Controlled Substances Act, and the procedural safeguards of the Administrative Procedures Act.”
A spokesperson for Kratom Education Network, Robert Macklin, says “Of course the Kratom Education Network never sets out to intentionally upset anybody. The aim of our articles is first and foremost to promote social awareness and exposing the way the government is trying to silence kratom users and their community. It is critical, however, with the amazing stories and testimonials we receive constantly on how kratom is positively affecting people’s lives in regards to pain relief, we must stay dedicated to our true voice.
Although our “Help Stop an International Kratom Ban” might unsettle people who opposed the American Kratom Association mission which restoring full consumer access and information to kratom and to safeguard the freedom of Americans to make their own choices on their health and wellness including preserving a healthy lifestyle, our duty is to our readers.
We believe it’s more important, to tell the truth about kratom, its positive effects, and associations like the AKA while continuing to help keep the public informed of their fight to assist kratom users and get them to join the cause than to try and please everyone in every article we write, which is notoriously difficult to do.”
The possibility of backlash exists as the article is exposing a history of governmental overreach in attempting to change the schedule level of kratom within the DEA to a schedule 1 narcotic with no actual facts to justify the escalation. We believe these issues are cause for alarm, demand observation as well as provide a call to action.
