I just received an email from Botanical Defense League wherein I read this news. State Legislature ended June 18, and neither of the bills had passed into law, so kratom is safe for another year here- unless I have misunderstood what I've read.

I'm hoping our board mods will confirm.

Cool, good news for NYS. I love your little pup, next dog we want is an Australian Shepperd, with the blue and black markings, semi-similar to your doggy.

American Kratom Association has it listed as safe. No article up yet though.

I haven't had time to write an article about the results of this legislative session. Here is what our legislative analyst and lobbyist, Susan Ash said in a private Facebook group "New York AKA for Kratom": "WE DID IT!!!
The NY State Legislature has officially adjourned. Kratom is safe until the next session! It is critical to continue to educate lawmakers in NY and other states that kratom is part of the solution, not the problem. Interim action alerts for all states at risk will be posted on our website throughout the summer. Great work to all who made calls, sent e-mails and a special thanks to the folks who met with their legislators in person, testified at the Long Island hearing and to Cathy Cresser and Darlene Rosenberg for joining me in Albany for AKA lobby day!"

To stay on top of developments, join the American Kratom Association's FB group and hear about it, as it happens!

Very, very good news Paul!

I am ecstatic to hear that New York is good to go for 2016. A big thanks to Susan, Paul, and anyone else who has helped in this process. I'm sure that I can speak for the entire Kratom community in saying that we all appreciate your efforts tremendously :x
