MAINE, March 6, 2017 /Re-leaf LLC Kratom New/ - Support for kratom is at an all time high, and there is a major contributor to the cause, that is slowly giving us our plant back 100%. The American Kratom Association dreams, that one day kratom will be 100% legal in the united states. And quite frankly, they are doing one "helluva" job. In this article, I will point out a few key statistics, that will detail the A.K.A,. as one of the biggest influences of our lifetime. There is little doubt in my mind, personally, that with out the A.K.A, and its key contributors, our beautiful mitragyna speciosa, would be 100% illegal and warrant its users hard time in prison.
Acting out of proactive necessity, the average kratom user, has become a sort of ammunition, being facilitated by the non-profit weapon, we know today, as the American Kratom Association. Since the announcement of the D.E.A.'s letter of intent, to schedule our wonderful herb, underneath the harsh schedule 1 policy, the aka has been making numerous "calls for action." Using social media outlets, such as, Twitter and Facebook, the A,K,A. has taken an educational approach to redefining what kratom actually means to the general public. Making this substance schedule 1, would be ridiculous. Just take a look at the infographic below, and compare some other schedule 1 drugs to kratom.
In total 26,047 Americans signed a petition, sent directly to the desk of the newly appointed President Donald Trump, urging him to take a reasonable stance on the topic. The A.K.A., their lawyers, and the people, presented overwhelmingly strong evidence for this South Asian herb. With evidence from all sides indicating this miracle tree, be left alone, by the the eager agents, of the nonsensical D.E.A. When using "common sense" in reviewing the D.E.A.'s performance, this government agency, often seems like they act on impulse, and govern themselves, by protecting the amount of work they will have, simply by making things illegal when they want. The cartoon below is satire, but, its probably an exact representation of how the D.E.A. came about writing their letter of intent to make kratom a schedule 1 drug.
As completely insane, as the illustration looks, this how I envision our mighty D.E.A.. The facts presented by the D.E.A. are incredibly loose, and the sources for their information, might just be their own imagination. In the thousand of years, this leaf has been used, you would think, more negative comments would be floating around, leaving tons of digital footprints, and tales of horrible happenings. But, that just isn't the case, at all. Most comments made by the people, were definitely not negative.
A analysis issued by the American Coalition of Free Citizens, and the A.K.A, released in early February, communicated through trusted statistics, that making this plant illegal, is an irrational, unpopular thought. The report presented the public comments, in two categories: pro-kratom and anti-kratom. Almost everyone who was polled, commented positive things about the leaf from the coffee family. The public commenting period further justifies, a call for us, to disband the D.E.A., and its self fulfilling ways. That report showed 99.1% of all comments made about this leaf were positive!
A report that was Issued on November 30, 2016 was long awaited by the kratom community. In it, was key evidence, supporting the innocence of this vilified plant. Dr Jack Hanningfield, vice president of Research, Health Policy, and Abuse Liability at Pinney Associates, reported that there was "insufficient evidence" for the DEA to limit the distribution of kratom. And using the Controlled Substances Act was/is unwarranted. The Dr. went on in his report, to say, the addiction potential and dependence of kratom, was no greater than the legal substances, "nutmeg, hops, St. John's Wort, chamomile, guarana, and kola nut."
Susan Ash made a powerful statement, "We are sending a strong message from the kratom community to the new White House that the attack on kratom producers and consumers must end. There is no room in an Administration committed to limited government and allowing responsible adults to live free lives for the DEA's regulatory overkill response to kratom. Coming as this does just weeks after the DEA comment period attracted 23,000 some comments that were 99 percent opposed to a kratom ban, the message for President Trump could not be clearer.
Here is the actual words from the same petition Donald Trump read:
Understanding any vantage point by the D.E.A. is hard to emulate. The only sensible reason the D.E.A. exists, in my opinion, is to make sure America generates a positive revenue on the war on drugs. Any person that see the numbers presented, in arguments that are propelled by the D.E.A.'s blatant disregard for common sense. Because the DEA, is part of an archaic corporate justice system that needs to be attended to, dearly. We are headed for a very censored life. And, well, If your okay with that, we firmly disagree.
To better understand how much our government takes our opinions, here is another infograph..
How about another?
The last statistic I'm not going to illustrate. It's amount is staggering, alone. In 30 days, when the DEA announced its intent on banning, over 142,000 people signed a petition to stop the ban. That is an amazing amount of people. So, just based guessing, I'd say atleast 90% of kratom users didn't sign anything, and are silent supporters. So, I estimate there are 1.5 million people who use kratom. That's a hefty amount. I really don't think it would be a wise move by the DEA, to continue its witch hunt. Each step further down this road, the DEA looks incompetent and hard to trust. We as people need to become informed, and spread knowledge. I expect all of you to share this article. And, I hope all of you actually hope, people understand the true value of kratom, the wide range in its use, and the harm it would cause to make 1.5 million people criminals over night. Instead of trying establish your job security, Mr D.E.A., why don't you focus on actual drug problems. Kratom is not a drug.
The American Kratom Association, is a non-profit association, and it's here to regulate an industry being abused by the DEA. They set the record straight, giving a voice to ensure our rights, to have, and to use kratom the way we want. The A.K.A. represents every person who buys kratom, and anyone who supports its amazing qualities. There are thousands of people who have made comments, home videos, and even documentaries about its excellence. Thousands of people will be negatively affected if we ban this leaf! We need to stand up now!
I want you all to take a second and think about what just happened. The American Kratom Association, has convinced most everyone, that the DEA is being petty, lying, and just flat out stupid. If you were a part of the DEA, how would you feel, after we dropped off that petition? Pissed. That's how you would feel. It's not over everyone. If you think the DEA is going to lay down, you are sadly mistaken. They had to regroup. They are regrouping, right now. I am sure of it. And recently, everyday I get at least one customer that seems like an agent, trying to have me do 'dumb-dumb' things like, send to an illegal state, or give consumption advice. It's not over people and if you think it is, you aren't helping. In every aspect of this I see the DEA regrouping and making a final push at our beloved leaf! Please don't let that happen!
I am trying to raise at least $10,000 for the A.K.A. to do my part. Below is the official donation link set up by the A.K.A. If you read this entire article and don't donate (if you have money to donate) I am disappointed in you. If you would like to help, share this article, and post about kratom education, and understanding this leaf will help our cause! Please donate today!
