FDA HEALTH ADVISORY
On November 14, 2017, FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottleib issued a Health Advisory which included a great deal of misinformation and labeled kratom a threat to public health. In the days following the Health Advisory, the media launched a propaganda attack on kratom reiterating many of the lies found in the Advisiry. The advisory also stated the FDA plans to step up efforts to seize kratom coming in to the U.S.

In response to the Health Advisory the American Kratom Association issued a Call to Action encouraging the kratom community to contact the FDA.
Earlier this Summer, Senators Chuck Grassley and Diane Feinstein introduced S. 1327, the Stop the Importation of Synthetic Analogues Act of 2017 (SITSA). A companion bill was introduced in the House H.R. 2851 by Representative John Katco of New York.
SITSA aims to create a new DEA drug classification, Schedule A, which would grant the Attorney General the authority to ban for five years any “analogue” of an opiod that controls pain or provides an increase in energy. It is feared that this legislation could be used to classify kratom as Schedule A.
The American Kratom Association issued a call to action urging kratom supporters to call the Senators and Congressman’s office and ask their staff to exclude natural botanicals like kratom from the SITSA Act. There is also a petition you can sign.
