Kratom Legal Status

www.PainNewsNetwork.org published on October 12 the recent news on Kratom legality. Here are some of the most important quotes regarding this matter:

““DEA is therefore taking the following actions: DEA is withdrawing the August 31, 2016 notice of intent; and soliciting comments from the public regarding the scheduling of mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine under the Controlled Substances Act.”

“DEA will consider all public comments received under the above procedures, as well as FDA’s scientific and medical evaluation and scheduling recommendation for these substances.  Once DEA has received and considered all of this information, DEA will decide whether to proceed with permanent scheduling of mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine , or both permanent and temporary scheduling of these substances” the DEA said in its announcement.

“We moved a mountain and now we’re parting the sea!!! Keep the pressure on; wait for commenting instructions please, we still have A LOT of work ahead of us,” Susan Ash, founder of the American Kratom Association (AKA).

“We still believe it should not be scheduled in any way, shape or form. It’s been consumed safely here for decades and worldwide for a millennium, so there’s really no impetus to make it a controlled substance, period,” Susan Ash.

“The DEA missed the mark here and it would be a gross miscarriage of due process to simply tell millions of American consumers and the legal businesses that serve them that they are now felons,” Travis Lowin of the Botanical Education Alliance.
