Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) Banned in Sarasota, Florida. URGENT

Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a medicinal tree from the coffee family. I implore you to make an informed decision by educating yourself on the safety and profound medicinal potential that Kratom (Mitraqyna speciosa, Korth) has exhibited in peer reviewed scientific research.  Please re-consider placing this plant in the most severe scheduling category and consider reasonable legislation that would restrict the sale of it to responsible adults 18+ similar to what other states are already considering. The following are pertinent facts for your consideration:

 

  • Kratom is a plant, not a synthetic chemical or a “StreetDrug”
  • Kratom is in the same family as the coffee tree (Rubiaceae)
  • Kratom is no more habit forming than coffee
  • Kratom has been safely used for thousands of years as a medicine
  • No one has ever died from taking Kratom
  • It is impossible to overdose on Kratom
  • Tens of thousands of Americans can attest to the beneficial properties of Kratom
