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.

You can get access to the controversial article by going here…

  • In terms of physical, mental, and emotional challenges, Kratom has been the only effective herbal supplement I have found. Many people will suffer it is banned.

  • There are so many strains for so many symptoms. I have ADD, so I use a strain for focus and quit taking the medication. The results have been amazing for my focus and clarity of mind.

  • I have found Kratom to be a good alternative to opioids. I was prescribed opioids after a car accident, but didn’t want to take them. I researched some alternatives, and came across Kratom. It has helped me through some debilitating pain. Just need to be mindful about how much you use it. Don’t overdo it.

  • I’m so glad I found this and I hope many others look into this herb for themselves to see if it works for them, as opposed to getting hooked into some of the more dangerous alternatives.

  • There are pros and cons to Kratom. It’s been a lifesaver for me, but should have some regulation to keep it safe. It is possible to abuse it, resulting in dangerous side effects. But if used correctly, it can truly help improve the pain and suffering I, and many others, experience.

  • The government tries to control too much. Let us make our own decisions about Kratom. We know what’s best for ourselves!

  • This ban would have a huge impact on many people who rely on this plant as their only way of recovering from addiction or managing chronic pain.

    Kratom is a plant that has been shown to have remarkable medical effects and should not be banned due to baseless fears.

    There are many substances like Kratom which are not completely safe but still have benefits. We need better regulations for these substances instead of bans.

  • My partner is a veteran who suffers from PTSD and chronic pain. He has been using Kratom in small doses for a few years, and it has been more helpful to him than other opioids he had been prescribed in the past. I would hate for them to ban it. It would be difficult to see him go back to feeling as bad as he was before finding Kratom.
