  • Call to Action! Dear Colleague Letters - Contact Your Representative!!

    So! As some of you may already know, several members of the House of Representatives (the "House") have stepped up to help us fight back against the latest round of attacks - this time from the FDA (and the DEA of course). There are currently 2 "dear colleague" letters floating around, and these letters need your help obtaining more sponsors. *Background note - a "dear colleague" letter is an official way for members of Congress to encourage support or opposition to a bill or policy.

    We (the community) need as many lawmakers as possible to sign these letters so the FDA and DEA understand that, once again, we-will-not-be-pushed-around!

    How can you help? Reach out to your representative in the House, and ask her or him to support-and-sign the Letters. If you don't know who your representatives are, don't worry! Follow this link to find out (and remember, you only need to reach out to the "Member" and not your senator:

    When you reach out to your representative, please, please, PLEASE take the time out to tell her/him who you are and how important kratom is to you. After that, kindly request them to sign both of the Letters. Please make sure to read both Letters yourself (even a couple times) so you are familiar with what the Letters say - the more information we are armed with, the better. You probably won't have to provide any information to their offices about how to find or sign the Letters but, just in case, here are links to both of them:

    The Mark Pocan and Frank LoBiondo Letter to the DEA can be found here:

    The Dave Brat and Jared Polis Letter to the FDA can be found here:

    Call or write your Representative today. Please, PLEASE do not wait. Everyone is counting on you. Mount up!
