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.

I haven't ordered from there for about a year and a half, but It sucks for people that do. I just hope this thing isn't going to spiral into every vendor being closed down due to these stupid regulations on a very helpful leaf.

Hey cybin_spores

I am confident that Kratom is doing ok and is on the right path! I am not sure on the specifics of kratomunderground.com's situation, but there has got to be some reason that they're getting their shipments seized and all of these other companies are not. It may not be their fault, it could be on the supplier's side, but something is obviously sticking out to the FDA.

We have some legal issues coming up in Florida, NY, and Illinois at the moment. Aside from that, all seems to be well. There is seemingly legitimate research being done at the University of Mississippi that I expect will yield results that will benefit Kratom legality. The battle continues!

From what I understand they had a video a few years ago and as we all know you cannot get rid of that kind of thing. I am just guessing here. They were one of the first to have issue with customs and are having a very hard time keeping stock on hand. It is sad, they were top for me when I first started ordering.

The video thing is speculation but it caused them unwanted attention and since then they have been struggling. They will be missed and it is really sad. The quality has dropped with all of this holding of the shipments for them and it was hard to roll with the punches. I hope they can start out on a new foot as many others have done since 2014. It has been a hard year for vendors and there are so many things customs should be targeting that are much worse than kratom.

Hey Jimmy Joe,

I only mention Illinois because of the 90,000 bottle seizure that just happened there. This puts it on there radar, and I would imagine they will attempt to take some sort of action here in the near future.

Oh, ok. I did read about that. And I agree with Jeff from Pharmacy Dropout that it is detrimental to the legality of the plant if companies keep marketing it as a dietary supplement or for human consumption. It's completely a legal issue, although the FDA says it's about "public health". Hopefully people start to wake up and get smart about this, or it's going to ruin it for a lot of people.

Kratom Underground is out of Texas. For many states there are legal battles ahead to keep this herb legal. I know here in NY they are trying to just ban the sale of it. That is all here so far but I read somewhere today about Georgia and Alabama? Luckily we have forces on our side with the Botanical Legal Defense and the AKA working on these things. If you cannot donate you can always write your sucess story for the AKA. www.americankratom.org/success_stories Every little bit helps.

Sad news. As only a lurker these days, I hadn't heard. Now I have products from TWO vendors wiped out :(
I only STILL have it because I SAVE mine up for occasional enjoyment only.
Bummer ...

We are located in Illinois, no issues that I'm aware of and I watch it very closely. Kratom on in the Great Plains!
