PETITION: Demand President Trump Stop the Criminalization of Kratom!
#1
Kratom Warriors:

As many of you know, we just announced that nine noted scientists, working with the American Kratom Association (AKA), authored a letter to President Trump’s White House Opioid Crisis Team Leader Kellyanne Conway and Acting DEA Administrator Robert W. Patterson.

This letter amplified the voice of the scientific community - now it's time for President Trump and Ms. Conway to hear YOUR voice with this petition.

In their letter, the scientists called out the FDA directly for their use of "bad science" when determining the safety profile of kratom.

And that’s why you and I must demand they disregard the FDA's latest disinformation campaign against kratom.

Please take a few moments and sign the petition to demand the President and Ms. Conway help protect the freedom of consumers to make their own choices about their health and well-being and to stop the criminalization of kratom.

There are organizations across the United States and within the Federal Government working day and night to criminalize kratom.

They don't care about the truth, the science, or the disastrous impacts banning kratom would have on millions of Americans.

We MUST come together as a kratom community RIGHT NOW to say with one unified voice - STOP THE ATTACK ON KRATOM!

Below is the text of the petition being sent to President Trump and Ms. Conway:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PETITION TO PRESIDENT TRUMP AND KELLYANNE CONWAY

We the undersigned ask for your immediate action to protect the freedom of consumers to make their own health care decisions, and stop the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from their broad regulatory overreach and the criminalization of millions of Americans who use kratom.

Kratom is a safe herbal supplement that is used by Americans to manage their health and well-being. Many have found kratom to be an effective alternative pain management therapy to dangerously addictive and deadly opioids. Leading scientists have concluded that banning kratom will create an unsafe kratom black market, and force kratom users who manage acute or chronic pain to deadly opioids and will lead to increased opioid deaths in America.

Mr. President, we ask that you direct the FDA and the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) to research how kratom can best be used as both an alternative pain management therapy, and as a potential step-down from opioid addiction; and direct the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to return the proposed scheduling recommendation for kratom to the FDA and NIDA for those additional studies -- and leave those Americans who use kratom for their personal health and well-being alone!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SIGN THE PETITION TO PRESIDENT TRUMP AND MS. CONWAY – LET'S SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE THAT KRATOM SHOULD BE PROTECTED!

Once you sign this petition, please forward this email to friends, family and even neighbors. Even if they are not a kratom consumer, please try to get their help in supporting this petition.

It is only because of your continued support that we are able to keep fighting to protect kratom. Thank you for your immediate action today.

The wording is not the crux of the deal. In 2016 144,000 signed the petition in 2016. The last petition sent a little over 33,000. It is not that there is 5 million kratom users, the question is how to get them to sign and even more important how do we get their brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, adult children and friends to sign as well. If even 10% of kratom users signed it would dwarf any petition sent using the whitehouse system, if all of that 10% all had one other sign,it would be a wave that no one could ignore the largest ever. How do we do that?

I so agree. I know myself, I send to all my family and friends, because they have seen the changes kratom has had on my life. It would seem if every member did that...and forums and other media outlets, we could far surpass the amount signers on any previous petition. I hope to do my part to encourage each one of us to do the same. Our time is now...
Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and enjoy the journey."

I'm in, the key is to find a way to really reach them

A idea don't no how possible it would be. What does everyone have today that even 10 years ago was not there?
They have a smartphone right I mean everyone has one they even give them away from free if you get food stamps!(Qlink) Now stay with me remember show American Idol, when it came to vote all you had to do was text a number like 27544 that opened up a webpage to vote. So lets get the same thing here we get a number that when texted automatically opens up a webpage with the petition(s) to sign. I bet most everyone you ask would do it cuz it takes no time at all and is easy? It would only take 2 small operations a text and then a click and your done! Most people may have good intentions but are lazy, make it very easy for them then they will likely act!
As a matter of fact every single online company selling Kratom should send out a email to all there customers, keep Kratom legal. If they can't do that much we need to blacklist the idiots!

Oh yes the tech is there, but why would the system want democratic vote?
