On August 30, 2016, the DEA started the process to place Kratom on the Schedule 1 Substance List. Kratom is a safe alternative to opioids, and has been used in Southeast Asia for millenia to improve overall health.
FDA, at the direction of the DEA, completed their 8 Factor Analysis on Kratom, and turned it over to DEA on December 1st, 2017.
DEA is now deciding whether or not to place Kratom on the Controlled Substance List.
The Goal of this campaign is to draw attention to Kratom, and gain the support from our elected representatives and the General Public and to show them that Kratom is safe, and can be a helpful tool.
