30 more signatures in the last almost 2 hours. 221 hours at the rate of 15 per hour= 3,315. That's less than 19,000. Does anyone have any ideas to get to the 100,000 needed to Save Kratom! hlycow#1

Pay for Ads on Facebook, elsewhere. Run a signup campaign in smokeshops (free sample for signups), Same for online vendors.

Talk it up, write articles, ask family & friends who have seen the improvements in us to sign in favor.

One woman told me, as we discussed this on FB, that her signature didn't seem to be taken. Normally, it shouldn't let you sign again, but it did for her. We should contact and ask them to check it out.

I will write some articles/blogs to try to get people to realize "What Will Christmas 2018 Be Like Without Kratom?" and urge them to get off their butt and do this step that helped us win last year. This is demoralizing for ppl to see so little participation.

That doesn't sound right! It should tell you you've already signed on the second try and beyond.

I'd better look into this!

Thanks for your report.

Something is definitely wrong. I was able to sign again. That's 4 times. These are the notifications I have received each time.

Uh-oh! Maybe the FDA put the kibosh on it! They won't honor our FOIA for their info sources, etc.

They're a rogue agency! ;) We'll defeat them anyway!

I’ve gotten error messages from the change dot org signature I sent. It keeps saying it hasn’t delivered but will try again for 23 hours. Third day in a row on that “error email” from them. I haven’t saved a copy of it to post. I’ll edit it in if/when I get it again.
HOLYCOW#1 and kemppaulh are right! We need multiple family members and supporters of us who ALSO benefit from the leaf, albeit indirectly. Meaning some family dogs must sign up also! They also get help from the leaf! Ha!
Sarcasm and serious mixed together. Point being, we NEED MORE SIGNATURES, error or no.

I think the site is messed up. I tried to sign again (2nd time) and it let me and confirmed for me, but last year it wouldn't let you sign twice. So, I'm led to the conclusion many of our signatures aren't being counted.

I asked AKA's Executive Director to find out what's wrong, but he's busy submitting a press release about the open letter 14,000 of us signed to Acting DEA Admin. So THAT letter got a decent # of signatures -- and other WhiteHouse petitions are evidently working -- I've got to wonder if this one has been hacked or sabotaged somehow. I may try to get in touch with the humans in charge of the petition site.

We're running out of time!

Here’s the error message I get, albeit from the change dot org petition:
