It was an interesting week. Some bad news and some very good news, which will help us reach our ultimate goal of Kratom being accepted as a dietary ingredient in the USA.
I managed to get on the bad side of the Botanical Legal Defense for publicly calling out their lobbyist and some other leaders for some moves that may have set us all back terribly. The only saving grace from that whole debacle was that Susan Ash, the de-facto Executive Director of the American Kratom Association formed a solid bond with Florida's Senator Evers that I believe will help us to get this bill tabled for a year or two. We will see.
On a couple other fronts, there is a documentary about the good that Kratom does that is being produced by pro videographer Tony Larson. I contributed the narration and the voiceover that will, I believe, set the tone for the project.
