How Can I Help Keep Kratom Legal?

How Can I Help Keep Kratom Legal?

27 Nov

Recently kratom has been under scrutiny for being considered a schedule 1 drug in the USA. That means that it is pretty much useless and it’s possession comes with heavy fines and jail time.  Just like marijuana.

But because kratom has a loyal following that made their voice heard it was not scheduled.  But it isn’t over yet.  You need to know what you can do to help keep kratom legal and accessible.

Sign the petition.

Write your legislators.
