Defend kratom from the DEA
The Drug Enforcement Administration could ban kratom and place it in Schedule I at any moment – putting the millions of people who use it at risk of arrest, prosecution and incarceration. Several recent news reports indicate a DEA ruling is imminent.
Kratom is a medicinal plant in the coffee family that’s been used for centuries in Southeast Asia. Millions of people in the U.S. use it to overcome addiction, chronic pain and other difficult-to-treat conditions. The DEA first tried to schedule kratom in 2016, but – in a historically unprecedented departure – backed down after activists like you and dozens of members of Congress pressured them to withdraw.
There’s little doubt the DEA is planning to ban it any day now. Take action to defend kratom from the DEA.
