BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND...
A few months ago we asked some of the Approved Vendors to offer some discounts to our community. A lot of them graciously did. We have been asked to bring those discounts back. The following vendors would like to share the love for this forum with you. I know we all appreciate it.

Thanks Laurie!
Just passing this on. I just got this email. Its a really easy way to contact your congressperson based on your zip code. It sends an email already written. It took me just a minute.

"I found out there's an easy way to contact your representatives! Use the link below (or the button below) to connect with the automatic way of emailing and calling your representatives!

Link to contact your representatives is here: p2a.co/f90Valr

NOTE: I found out that if this passes the house then we will have to fight it at the Senate Level. Let's not let that happen Kratom Warriors! This is not hype, and contrary to what I thought when SITSA was first introduced, I'm convinced it's very much the ONLY way the FDA could effectively ban Kratom. They are trying everything they can and this is their ONLY way they can do it themselves."

They appear to be back in session at 4:27PM PACIFIC TIME. They are! It's late there, they're moving QUICKLY to begin voting from what I can discern. They are reviewing the Bill numbers and general topic of each, first.

3 Bills are being considered. 4:40 PM PACIFIC TIME. THIS IS THE POCAN AMENDMENT FOR KRATOM NOW! 4:41PM

Mr Polis is presenting our side (the amendment to exclude Kratom from the SITSA BILL). Mr Hastings supports the amendment.

Amendment NOT agreed to :(

We LOST unless the whole Bill gets tossed out again. Watching for THAT !

Anyone else watching? What did you hear? I heard NAY on the Kratom exclusion amendment

I'm WRONG often. Hoping I am missing something.

A lot goes on in the background. IT AINT OVER YET. Look to the American Kratom Association website for an update and our next move(s)!

Night!

Well this just sucks! Leave it to me to try the one thing that they are trying to make illegal and actually find it helpful...now I may no longer be able to access it. I watched your video link. Definitely agree it was a no 6-4 on the addmenedment. I haven’t read the entire bill so maybe this is way off base but....is there still hope even if it passes that they don’t pile Kratom into this group of the carfentanyl and other synthetically made opiates?

There’s still MORE voting to be done by MORE people. So MORE action is necessary. Refer to the AKA website or their forum (Americankratom.org) for well written instructions as what is next and how we CAN STILL WIN.

It ain’t over!

I’m a big believer in prayer. Anyone who can stand it, please join me at your convenience.

There is STILL GOOD REASON and PERHAPS EVEN MORE REASON to fight for our Constitutional Right to choose (besides opiates and gluten!) haha

I have been checking their site. Doesn’t seem like they had updated this morning after the vote. I’ll look again. I did send an email to my rep. Unfortunately he isn’t on the committee and he is a republican from the south. So I’m sure he is is real happy to be receiving the emails. Lol. ;)

Nothing left to do until next week besides pray and give the AKA some time to organize the strategy for ALL THE MILLIONS OF US.

Try to relax and take good SELF CARE and don’t think about losing. We WILL WIN with positivity in thought,

and driving a Republican nuts is NOT SOMETHING I WOULD DISCOURAGE-LOL

KTA summary of events and what to do next! 2 months 4 days ago #29063

Below is a wrap up of what went on and what is to come next from the KTA (Kratom Trade Association).
This hearing was sneaked in will little prior notice or warning so no one really had the chance to hear about it and call our congress people about supporting the Pocan Bill in time. There was zero regard or respect for public input.

This should get us even more motivated to make ourselves be heard! We are not defeated. Its not over. Now I am really encouraged to mobilize and act the next time we need our voices heard. I encourage everyone to get on the mailing list of the AKA and KTA (Kratom Trade Association) so we can be informed quickly of actions we need to take.

Here is the notice from the AKA they sent me yesterday:

A Wrap-up on the Pocan Amendment to SITSA Act
Today the House Rules Committee defeated the Pocan/Gosar/Polis kratom amendment to the SITSA Act or “Stop the Importation and Trafficking of Synthetic Analogues Act of 2017” that would have ensured kratom was protected from this bill. Our next battle to make sure kratom cannot be scheduled through this Act will be in the Senate Judiciary Committee when the issue is scheduled for a Hearing there.

This is disappointing news, but there is still hope. The KTA is following this closely along with the AKA and others and will provide direction on next steps as the bill makes its way through the Senate. The Senate will need to hear from you, as well, so please stay tuned! We will continue our advocacy before the House and Senate to make clear that Kratom is not an opioid analogue and is used safely by millions of Americans.
Through continued grassroots and professional lobbying efforts in the community, we can make sure we protect kratom together. For a last minute urgent alert, we were very impressed by the number of people that called and emailed. Stay tuned...
