Some in our United States government are such control freaks they won’t stop until everyone is forced to break some law.
What do I mean?
Take for example this:
On Friday of last week, Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, dropped a bill in the U.S. Senate that our lobbyists believe can give the FDA and DEA a backdoor way of banning kratom completely in the United States.
S. 1327 is euphemistically called the SITSA Act. And a companion bill in the US House of Representatives has already been filed, H.R. 2851, by Representative John Katco of New York. The SITSA Act stands for the “Stop Importation and Trafficking of Synthetic Analogues Act of 2017.”
SITSA creates a new “Schedule A” that gives the Attorney General of the United States the broad power to ban any “analogue” of an opioid that controls pain or provides an increase of energy.
Because kratom’s 2 primary alkaloids, mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine, though not opioids, act similarly, our concern is that they could use this legislation to justify a ban.
These senators keep trying to make new laws to fit what they think is “legal” behavior. This is so frustrating for anyone who believes in free choice without prosecution by the government.
I have used Kratom for a number of years and Kratom provides an option for people who don’t want to or can’t afford to buy into prescription drugs for pain, depression, withdrawals and much more.
Before choosing sides, be informed about the facts when it comes to the Kratom leaf.
Read the testimonials from the people who use Kratom daily and swear by it’s healing properties.
This new law is another attempt to control, us, the people of the United States, and I oppose it.
