This news just got released. I don’t know anything more but expect we will all learn more soon:


1) There will be federal legislation filed in the next session of the Congress that will call for the lifting of the FDA Import Alert on kratom; direct the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to increase funding for kratom research; and require the FDA to issue manufacturing standards mirroring the Kratom Consumer Protection Act that has already passed in 4 states.

2) The AKA Board just approved an unprecedented lobby effort to support the introduction of the Kratom Consumer Protection Act in 21 states in 2020.

Not to bring politics into the forum but Tulsi Gabbard signed the proposal regarding keeping the FDA from banning Kratom, and she favors legalization of marijuana.

She neither drinks or uses weed, but she doesn't impose her preferences on us.

For balance, it must be said that there ARE issues with legality in other countries and Indonesian governments are not on the same page with regard to crops and exports. BUT, the AKA ( www.americankratom.org ) is up front of these issues and they’re doing amazing things to save the future of the industry.

Cool link, Don.

I’m going to be doing a bit less on ILK and more on other tasks. So if you guys see something that is not getting adequate attention, please let me know. I will be doing LESS but I’m not leaving ILK until the body bags show up with my toe tag. Thought I’d mention it while I gotchoo

Have I learned a lot about whats going on with Kratom in the Legislation and news section! The links you all put up are awesome. It is 3am here and have been reading this and other stuff for 6 hours or more. A week or more ago I had not even heard of Kratom.the research scientist saying that Kratom only binds to one opiate receptor site but not the one that suppresses breathing and kills people is revolutionary. That its so mild that its insane to him for the DEA to even consider schedule 1. It can not kill anyone.I realize this could be the solution to the big opiate problem and people want to kill all the trees. Mother Nature has a solution for us and people want to kill the trees. This is huge. Scientists are excited about this. Im so glad I was able to read this and thank you from the bottom ov my heart for making the links available.

I live up in the mountains in a tiny town. I dont watch tv. I watch birds and wildlife and hardly go anywhere partly because of untreated pain. But I like the simple quiet life. But we do have a head shop that sells kratom and medical collectives I use.I do love kratom the more i understand it. What an amazing tree. Mind blown in a good way.

Your lifestyle sounds great for stress management and pain minimization! I did that lifestyle for a few years and I’m very glad to have done it in this life. It was a special decade when I lived in the mountains and I still have a place with friends that I can visit each year to remind me about how magical it is (except it’s a hard life in some ways).

Definitely check out the AKA website for more current information on the Legislative side of things ( www.americankratom.org )

Here's the Latest News on AKA's push to educate Indonesian Ministry officials on the safety and benefits of kratom, from 15 of the scientists most active in researching the plant.

My thoughts are on my blog today at Tinyurl.com/cknnqps

The link to the full copy of the Scientists' Letter is here: documentcloud.adobe.com/link/track?uri=u...29-9c45-c1510ca463e9
