Policy ended that targeted legitimate business within the kratom community

WASHINGTON, D.C.///August 18, 2017/// Yesterday, the DOJ announced the ending of the Obama-Era program called "Operation Choke Point." This program had attempted to cut off sources of credit for businesses targeted by the department, including many working within the kratom industry.

Dave Herman, the Chairman of the American Kratom Association (AKA) stated, "We have been working with lawmakers for months to discontinue this program due to its impact on those within the kratom community. We felt that this was significantly hurting legitimate businesses across the country. We are encouraged by the actions of the DOJ."

Over the last several months, experiences started to surface of many kratom businesses and consumers having their credit card transactions restricted.

"The AKA is hopeful this will be a major step in restoring the freedom of access to kratom for consumers from legitimate businesses," Herman continued.

According to Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, "All of the Department’s bank investigations conducted as part of Operation Choke Point are now over, the initiative is no longer in effect."

The AKA would like to thank Senator Orrin Hatch (UT), who has been a champion for kratom and the rights for individuals to make their own decisions about their well-being, for his efforts in ending Operation Choke Point.

The America Kratom Association, a consumer-based non-profit organization, is here to set the record straight, giving a voice to those suffering and protecting our rights to possess and consume kratom. AKA represents tens of thousands of Americans, each of whom has a unique story to tell about the virtues of kratom and its positive effects on their lives.
