Calling all Kratom Warriors
The WHO and the UN are considering an international kratom ban which would make kratom illegal internationally and domestically. Luckily for us, the FDA Request for comment period has been extended until August 24th. Any comment left could be considered by the FDA in preparing a response to the WHO on October 11th.
THIS IS THE DIRECT LINK to leave your comments during the comment period which ends August 24th, so act fast! Comments should be about personal experiences with kratom and not attacks on the FDA. How has kratom changed your life, what has kratom done for you, etc.
