Over the last few months, Facebook has been trying to crack down on "fake news" and various other issues that they feel is plaguing their platform.  As part of that crackdown, many pages related to Kratom or other natural botanicals have been shut down, often for unknown reasons.  Facebook has a policy that we are not allowed to post:

"Content about non-medical drugs (other than alcohol or tobacco) that"

  • Coordinates or encourages others to sell non-medical drugs
  • Depicts, admits to, or promotes sales of non-medical drugs by the poster of the content or their associates
  • Promotes, encourages, coordinates, or provides instructions for use of non-medical drugs
  • Admits, either in writing or verbally, to personal use of non-medical drugs unless posted in a recovery context"

While we understand these restrictions, we must vehemently disagree.  Kratom is a natural botanical that hails from Indonesia, is consumed by 3 to 5 million Americans, has powerful beneficial effects (such as safe pain relief), and is presently legal; although it is under attack by federal agencies that are trying unsuccessfully to ban it through a coordinated campaign of misinformation.

Bottom line -- we believe, and the science confirms, that Kratom saves lives. 

Facebook is a community for all of us to come together.  We as Kratom consumers want to be able to come together on Facebook with the knowledge that we can speak freely about our chosen use of a botanical to support our well-being and comfort.  We peddle no misinformation.  We do not claim that our plant cures cancer.  We deal only with scientifically-backed truth.  And we would like to be left in peace, knowing that we can meet with friends in our community and share in our common love of this botanical.

We as a community ask that Mr. Zuckerberg talk to us, let us explain the truth about Kratom and why it's so important, and then agree to leave us be.

Please stop shutting down our pages.
