TIPS ABOUT YOUR COMMENTS TO THE DEA

Be honest. Stick to what you know. Be courteous.

Your comment is an opportunity to oppose the DEA’s proposal to make the alkaloids mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine, two constituents of the kratom plant, schedule 1 controlled substances. This would put kratom -- a plant consumed safely in the U.S for decades and world-wide for millennia, and one that helps millions of people -- on the same level as illegal drugs like heroin. The DEA scheduling would also prevent further research which, to date, has shown the primary alkaloids in kratom to be beneficial without causing respiratory depression; the main cause of death from opiate overdose.

Kratom is a regulated dietary ingredient. Kratom is not a drug. Kratom is not addictive.
