Oh boy! Al Franken is a well spoken man but hes got a crap ton of ridicule lately. At least he owns his past faults.
Such timing, sending anyways :-bd

Well I sent my letter to Sen Al Franken last night and it appears he shared it with Rick nolan, our congressman. I only Wrote Al last night because I needed to get to bed and was gonna write rick this afternoon. Well I got a e-mail from rick nolan this morning that reads,,,,



Dear Mr. Holmsten,

Thank you for contacting me with your thoughts and concerns regarding the classification of Kratom. I appreciate you taking the time to share your views with me.

As a member of the House Committees on Agriculture and Transportation and Infrastructure, I am humbled by the opportunity to help shape legislation important to Northeastern Minnesota, and I take that responsibility very seriously. As you may know, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) delayed its plan to ban the substance after receiving over 22,000 comments following their announcement.

To best serve the people of such an expansive and diverse district in the House of Representatives, it is important that I receive letters like yours to best understand and define the interests of my constituents. To that end, I believe that my role in Washington is to listen to your thoughts, share your views with my colleagues in Congress, and champion those views that most impact our district and the state of Minnesota.

Moving forward, I will continue to keep your thoughts in mind should this or related issues come to the House floor for a vote.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me. Please don't hesitate to reach out if I can be of assistance on this or any matter.

I encourage you to follow me on Facebook and Twitter and visit my website at nolan.house.gov to receive daily updates.

Sincerely,

Richard M. Nolan
Member of Congress

SO yeah this shows that just even writing one of your representatives doesn't mean it's only gonna be seen by them until the issue comes up.

I received a form letter which has to be what they used last year during the first intent to ban. All the info is about the August 30, 2016 DEA scheduling. Ended with I also will keep your thoughts in mind should legislation regarding the CSA and kratom come before the full Senate.
But this is last years sentiment.
