Please Everyone that really wants kratom to stay legal act TODAY. This is seriously urgent. The House of Representatives Rules Committee will hear this bill THIS AFTERNOON (TUESDAY)----that is TODAY! Its easy, just READ this and do it. We must make ourselves be heard. No one but US can do this, but WE CAN. This is just from yesterday on: www.americankratom.org/press-releases

URGENT SITSA UPDATE!!!!
Kratom Warriors:

The FDA has lobbied the Speaker of the House and they are trying to force the SITSA Bill to the House Floor without the amendment to protect kratom from a back-door scheduling maneuver.

​The House of Representatives Rules Committee will hear this bill on Tuesday afternoon.

It is critical if you live in the Congressional District of one of these House of Representatives (who serve on the Rules Committee) CALL THEM IMMEDIATELY AND ASK THEM TO SUPORT THE POCAN AMENDMENT TO PROTECT KRATOM.

​All Kratom Warriors should contact their own Congressman and tell them to support the Pocan Amendment.

Your help is urgently needed. Call immediately to protect kratom.

​RULES COMMITTEE Members

​Questions & Answers on SITSA

First, follow the link on the SITSA post. "Only" contact those that are on your list, in your district, on the rules committee.

Second is what do I say?
Simply say: If you are calling the House Rules Committee and speaking to your Representative, simply tell him, " I am calling to ask you to support the Pocan Amendment to the SITSA Bill. He/she will know what you're talking about, in regards to SITSA. If they say they can't support the amendment then ask him to Simply vote no on SITSA

No not over night. But this could lead to a way to ban it without recourse for up to five years.

It could definitely lead to it being illegal . THe SITSA bill is way too broad. It is supposed to just be for controlling synthetic new drugs, but with the broad wording of it, it would possibly include kratom or other plants to be banned.. The Pocan Amendment was written to exclude kratom from being ever affected by this bill. They did not add this admendment to it. That is the reason for calling.
People are way too relaxed after they withdraw the scheduling of kratom in 2016. The fda is still really against it and against people's freedom of choice to use it.
This is how they do things. As soon as people are more relaxed about something, they try to sneak something through like this really fast. The AKA didn't know or tell people about how soon they were doing this until Sunday.
There was very little time to do something about it. I'm 6 hours behind Washington DC, so I set my alarm for 2 AM last this morning and woke up and called.
It was easy. They knew what I was talking about and they assured be they would pass it along to the Congressman before the SITSA hearing. Then I went back to bed.

The top of every page in ILK talks about it! But there was no call to action or directions about what to do!! WTF? Just a link to the AKA. No offense meant but I even read it before here on ILK (its on every page on top), and did not understand how serious it was until my supplier emailed me and said we have to get off our asses and do something now.

I really hope more people took this seriously and called in.
That's why I posted. I guess I take this stuff more seriously because of how bad my horrible my nerve damage is and how I would probably end my life because of the pain and immobility without kratom.

Let's just ban all plants. If you have a plant in your yard you're going to jail sir

Guess you guy can tell I'm not one with words. Your guys post paragraphs at a time and I can only find single sentences

Frogs, I’m not able to communicate effectively either. ILKratomites including YOU tolerate me anyway. I hear what you’re saying. Words aren’t always necessary.

CSPAN is voting on tons of “opioid abuse disorder” bills now. Supposedly our turn is at 2PM PST or 5PM EST.

Prayer helps, too.

Let's just hope we win. I was going to do a petition then Another vendor posted but a requirement is to add your address and I don't think I want them to know where I live.
I'm the type of person that doesn't think votes matter.

I just wanted to take it back about saying the forum's top post was't good enough. It WAS a call to action if read carefully, and they posted it as soon as they could. Thanks ILK for posting that!!

Thanks,
