If Kratom has been of benefit to you, please take the time to tell your story to the FDA.
On July 23rd, 2021, a notice was placed on The Federal Register,
(The Daily Journal of the United States Government, and part of our National Archives.)
This notice is a request for information to help the FDA formulate communications with the World Health Organization, and the United Nations, in an attempt to create an international ban on Kratom.
What to do
We can make a difference by sharing “A Formal Comment” via the Federal Registry Portal.
These comments should be personal experiences with kratom and will ensure the W.H.O. has true testimonials from real Americans on the positive power of kratom.
These “formal comments” shouldn’t be attacks on the FDA. They need to be personal experiences and kratom testimonials.
Electronic comments must be submitted on or before August 9, 2021.
Here are the exact instructions from the Federal Registry site:
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or Agency) is inviting interested persons to submit comments concerning abuse potential, actual abuse, medical usefulness, trafficking, and impact of scheduling changes on availability for medical use of seven drug substances. These comments will be considered in preparing a response from the United States to the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding the abuse liability and diversion of these drugs. WHO will use this information to consider whether to recommend that certain international restrictions be placed on these drug substances. This notice requesting comments is required by the Controlled Substances Act (CSA).
