Remove Mitragynine & 7-hydroxymitragynine from Indiana's HB 1196! Save Kratom from prohibition!

Kratom, also known as Mitragyna Speciosa, is a medicinal tree from the Coffee Family and is native to South-East Asia. Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine are two of the primary alkaloids of this plant. These two compounds are also not synthetic; they are a natural part of the leaf of the Kratom plant. This in itself shows that these two compounds are not valid candidates for the banning of 'synthetic substances' in the Indiana House Bill No. 1196 proposal.

Kratom is being sought as a treatment for various medicinal reasons by a great many people. Adding these compounds to Indiana's list of synthetic substances is not only an unjustified prohibition, but also a great loss to the many people already seeking its usage as a treatment.

We hope you realize the threat this bill causes the people seeking legitimate medicinal use of this special plant.

      It appears that despite our efforts, Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine will be submitted into legal procedures along with the other chemicals of this bill. This isn't what we wanted, but we cannot stop here. We must keep active in our rights and stay marching in the Kratom movement. We want you to stay earnest with what your state legislature is doing and keep up with further legal actions against the Kratom plant or its alkaloids.

      Ladies and gentlemen, this is only over if we become passive. For Kratom users everywhere, we must move forward.

      So far, 150 citizens have agreed with the petitions aim to remove Mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine from the Indiana House Bill. I want to thank everyone for supporting this movement with your signatures and comments. Surely a representative of the people should take concern to such matters regarding public opinion.

      Kratom is a remarkable plant with many varying medicinal uses. It does not deserve the treatment being handed down from Indiana's Legislation nor any other that proposes any sort of banning of the Kratom plant or it's alkaloids.

      Keep up the good work, folks!

      Because the ignorance surrounding this plant is outstanding. This plant is gentle, natural and highly beneficial! It is NOT synthetic, it is NOT dangerous, without research you have NO RIGHT to make it illegal. It's saved my life from bipolar and kept me from getting on harmful pharmaceutical drugs. It makes my life better and I've had NO PROBLEMS with this natural herb. CLOSE THE HEADSHOPS... they are your problem! They should not be permitted to sell anything under the intent that they do. SOLVE THAT ISSUE and leave Kratom ALONE! We have spoken.

      Put an age restriction on it! Banning a plant ? Marijuana is being made legal in states, lets not take steps back here.

      Kratom is more safe than any other opiate or synthetic opiate out there. If you ban kratom, then your taking away the hope of the lives kratom has saved and who it could save int the future. Please reconsider.
