We have good news, but first I'd like to thank you for all the support and feedback given. Last week, Senator Crowe has withdrawn bill 73 in Louisiana, so there is no proposal to ban kratom!
He and the other lawmakers have received many protests and seen the petition online that you signed. This has helped a lot to change their minds. The senator remains however concerned about possible abuse by youngsters and will propose an age limit for kratom users to 18 years. We can understand and respect this.
We hope that you will be ready again next time to protest with us,whenever another state or region decides to place kratom on the controlled substances list. But hopefully this will not be necessarily soon.
For those who want to join us in our efforts to defend the free and legal use of kratom, please join the kratom association at http://kratomassociation.org/
Thanks again for all and I hope we can continue to enjoy our freedom of choice and kratom for a long time.
on behalf of many kratom users, sellers and The kratom association.
Kratom, known also as Mitragyna Speciosa, is a medicinal tree from the Coffee Family and is native to South-East Asia. Kratom has been used for thousands of years for its medicinal properties. Kratom, when consumed, can treat depression, chronic pain, anxiety, opiate dependence, fatigue, stress and many other ailments.
Besides this it is used by many former addicts of alcohol and opiates.
Kratom does not produce strong effects and Kratom is not as addictive as suggested. Comparatively speaking, it is less addictive than Coffee.
Politicians might see it as another opportunity to pretend they are protecting people from some dangerous substance, when in fact they are just banning a 100% natural leaf from a tree.
Kratom has helped thousands of people with many ailments. Kratom should NOT be outlawed.
Speak up and protect your right to alternative medicines!
