YOUR RESPONSE TO THE TRUMP KRATOM PETITION WAS HUGE!

After we sent this TRUMP PETITION out last week, we watched the numbers climb! Thanks to your help... the petition was signed by over 26,000 people. It only needed 25,000 signatures to be sent. Efforts like this show that we have power to change the future of Kratom.

MORE SIGNATURES NEEDED ON CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE PETITION
This petition reminds those in government that we want to save kratom. This HOUSE & SENATE PETITION takes just seconds to sign. Please sign and share.

SAFE UNTIL DECEMBER 1ST

A huge win for kratom consumers was achieved yesterday because of your generous support as part of the kratom community. Your purchases and donations, letters and phone calls all helped to put a chink in the armor of the overstepping DEA. Thank You!


In case you haven't heard, yesterday the DEA removed its notice to list kratom as a controlled substance under their emergency authority. This news was covered via Washington Post, NPR, and many other media outlets.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2016/10/12/the-dea-is-reversing-its-insane-decision-to-ban-the-opiate-like-plant-kratom-for-now/

The DEA will now initiate a new process that will allow a public comment period until December 1, 2016.  When the DEA began this process on August 30, no one thought we had a chance to achieve this result, but we did thanks to your support and the thousands of kratom supporters who signed petitions, made phone calls, contacted members of Congress, and provided financial support to the cause.

The battle is not over.  We must continue our advocacy efforts to the DEA and now the FDA as well. We must make every effort to stop kratom from becoming a controlled substance. Therefore, we are asking you to continue to follow and support American Kratom Association with your words, actions, and financial contributions.

We are happy to report that we will be continuing to import kratom and double our efforts to provide new botanicals for you in the coming months.

Thank you for your loyalty through this process,

AND WE ARE BACK - SHIPPING AGAIN

We've been informed that the DEA's ridiculous attempt to ban kratom is has been delayed - and we will be taking orders again ASAP and resume shipping a couple days later this week. Scroll down for Kratom in stock.

Initially, it is a two-week reprieve, but it could be up to 60 days. The key is to continue to contact your senators and representatives. Your stores will continue to bolster our cause.

This doesn't mean that the ban is off the table. Or that we can let up. From The American Kratom Association: this is the result of "Endless Pressure-Endlessly Applied.

The DEA will be releasing a statement in the next few days about opening a public comment period and exactly what that will look like. Obviously we are going to need to flood them with comments!
Aside from every single person writing in with their testimonies, we will need to get as many medical professionals (preferably MDs) and scientists to submit comment and testimony as we possibly can to challenge the claims that Kratom is an opiate and that it has no medicinal use.
This is a very big deal y'all. Regardless of what happens, it means our voices have been heard!!!"

Call, tell them your age and occupation, that you are a responsible consumer of the botanical kratom because it has *helped you by ______ and ask that they sign the Hatch Dear Colleague letter requesting the DEA to delay the proposed scheduling of Kratom "to allow for both a public comment period and sufficient time for the DEA to outline it's evidentiary standards to the Congress on the justification of this proposed action."

Call 202-224-3121 and press option #1 for Senate. Find and e-mail your senator here http://www.senate.gov/senators/contact/

Thank you for your kind words and notes, we hate to keep you on the rollercoaster, but we are happy to have some good news,

Last Days of Shipping

I wanted to first thank you for six great years of getting kratom to those that need it. We started The Major to provide a reliable source of kratom with great customer service. And thanks to all the letters that you've sent, phone chats, etc, we feel like we've been doing a good job. 

I'd like to update you on shipping in our last few days before the ban is scheduled to go through. Of course things can change in a moment if we hear that the ban will be postponed.

In an effort to get Kratom out of the mail stream by 10/1, we'll stop shipping 9/27 for most areas in the country. Orders in New England, the kind that only take 1 day can still be shipped until 9/28.

We'll change and adjust things as we go to best serve you and to keep you in the loop. 

Warmly,

Bill

NEW! Support the Congressmen supporting you!

A team of legal experts working with the American Kratom Association have identified two champions in Congress of the pro-Kratom cause--Congressman Pocan of WI and Salmon of AZ. By the end of the day they are set to present the director of OMB and the Acting Director of the DEA with a "Dear Colleague" letter asking the DEA to slow down the process of classifying Kratom as a schedule 1 substance.

These lawmakers are on our side! But they still need the support of responsible adult Kratom users like you to convince the DEA to halt this life-impacting decision. It's absolutely imperative that you contact your representative right now--tell them why Kratom works for you and ask them to sign on to the Pocan/Salmon Dear Colleague letter on this issue. It's so important, in fact, that if you can provide us with proof that you've contacted your local representative we'll give you a coupon code for your 20% off your next order.

Click here to find your representative and ensure that your voice is heard--scroll down for a copy/paste letter to help inform.

Better yet, call your member of Congress using the US Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121 to personally explain how important this issue is to you.


-The Major
Dear Representative,

Please help keep, Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) and/or its constituents Mitragynine and 7-hydroxy-mitragynine, legal in our state. I implore you to make an informed decision by educating yourself on the relative safety of this plant compared to coffee, alcohol, tobacco, and prescription drugs, and I urge you to research the medicinal potential that this plant has ALREADY displayed. Please re-consider placing this plant in the most severe scheduling category and consider reasonable legislation that would restrict its use to 18+ like other states are already considering. The following are pertinent facts for your consideration:

● Kratom is a plant, NOT a synthetic chemical or “Street Drug” ● Kratom is in the same family as the coffee tree (Rubiaceae) ● Kratom is no more habit forming than coffee see recent article by the cato institute, http://www.cato.org/blog/addiction-problem-case-kartom

● Kratom has been safely used for thousands of years as a medicine ● No one has ever died from taking Kratom alone. ● It is impossible to overdose on Kratom ● Tens of thousands of Americans can attest to the beneficial properties of Kratom ● The state of WI may reverse their ruling to ban kratom see https://www.botanicallegaldefense.org/wisconsin-kratom-community-looking-to-deschedule-kratom/

Furthermore, Kratom and its 30+ active alkaloids show tremendous dietary supplement potential. The legislation, as it currently reads, would place Kratom and its alkaloids in the most severe scheduling category, schedule I. Making this plant and its constituents schedule I, effectively makes it impossible for legitimate researchers to discover and develop valuable medicines from Kratom that could benefit the lives of millions! This is not a sensible approach to regulating this plant.

Current peer reviewed studies on Kratom and its constituents have shown that Kratom has no acute toxicity[1], displays powerful antioxidant and antibacterial properties[2], assists with drug and alcohol withdrawal symptoms[3], contains several oxindole alkaloids which have exhibited potent immunomodulation properties, and even contains constituents that have exhibited anti-cancer properties![4] A brief search in any scholarly database will present hundreds of peer reviewed studies and clinical trials that can attest to the medical potential of this plant.

A few more facts for you to consider when making your informed decision:

● According to the CDC, cigarette smoking causes 440,000 deaths in the United States every year; about one of every five deaths in this country are caused by cigarettes! ● Alcohol causes more than 1.2 million emergency room visits and 2.7 million physician office visits due to excessive drinking each year![5] ● Pharmaceutical drugs are one of the leading causes of death in this country, killing one American every 19 minutes! [6] ● Prescription opiate pain killers account for more than 475,000 emergency room visits annually.[7] ● Over the counter pain relievers such as Tylenol send over 56,000 people to the emergency room each year with liver related complications.[8] ● The Mayo Clinic has reported a 28% increase in overall mortality in people who drink 4 cups of coffee per day.[9]

In summary, the current proposed legislation places the medicinal herb Kratom and its constituents in the Schedule I category which is reserved for highly dangerous, addictive drugs that have NO medical value. The medical literature has proven Kratom and its constituents to be quite the contrary; a useful, safe, medicinal plant that has been used for thousands of years without incident. Kratom does not present a significant threat to human health or safety, when compared to legal substances such as alcohol, tobacco, Rx medications, Tylenol, or even coffee! Scheduling this plant would prohibit any future research and criminalize tax paying, productive citizens in your state as drug users, who are simply benefiting from the use of this plant.

Thank you for your consideration,

What is kratom?

Mitragyna Speciosa, commonly known as kratom, is an all-natural-botanical (a plant) native to Burma, Malaysia, Thailand, and other parts of Southeast Asia. Kratom is in the same family as the coffee plant, the Rubiaceae family. Just like coffee, it is a seed-producing flowering bush or tree. Typically, Kratom trees grow in clusters, and can reach heights of over thirty feet...(learn more)
