Putting a Stop the Fear Campaign

By American Kratom Association, Washington, DC, Special for  USDR

Even though the case for banning or scheduling kratom has been debunked, there continue to be a number of unwarranted warnings about the coffee-like botanical coming from city, county and state agencies across the United States.  In calling for a halt to these unscientific attacks on kratom, the American Kratom Association today issued a new fact-versus-fiction infographic at  http://tinyurl.com/gvwbsk5.

The local and state warnings appear to be an outgrowth of the one or more briefings conducted last fall by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) with police and health officials across the United States. The AKA has learned of the DEA briefing or briefings, which were held before the point in time when the federal agency put on hold its plan to schedule kratom as an illegal  drug.
