Kratom News for the Week
Kratom is off the DEA "Hit list": "Drugs and Chemicals of Concern". (We have verified this with a regional DEA agent.) Hurray!
The head of the DEA, Michele Leonhart, is resigning due to embarassment over some DEA agents partying with Colombian drug magnates and teenage hookers. We will be watching when a new Director of the DEA is appointed, and working to continue the growth in the DEA's understanding of kratom.
Things are looking up for kratom in Florida. We're looking good in Louisiana, too...
We had a quick success on Monday of this week (April 27th), when a hasty email campaign prevented kratom from being banned in Louisiana. The state representatives even thanked us for helping them to understand the good that kratom is doing in their state. (More on this spectacular turnaround in next week's blog.)
