WASHINGTON, Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As of noon EST today, the www.KratomComments.org
Input from KratomComments.org is cascading in so quickly into the DEA's Regulation.gov comment form that the federal agency's official count was lagging at 11,382 as of noon EST today. AKA created the KratomComments.org website in October 2016 to make it easier for consumers to submit their comments to the DEA. The site has proven so popular that 1,436 comments – more than a tenth of all comments received so far - were submitted on November 29th alone.
AKA is working hard to get as many people as possible who have benefited from kratom to share their opposition to the classification of the coffee-like herb as a Schedule I drug.
American Kratom Association Director Susan Ash said: "We are delighted that people used what we provided to make submitting comments easier. If you've already sent your comments in to the DEA directly or through KratomComments.org, please make it your mission today to find five other people in the kratom community, and/or family members who have witnessed positive changes in your life as a result of kratom, and encourage them to send in comments. We need to make sure our voices cannot be ignored. I am appealing to you -- to each and every one of you with a story like my own -- to help get this done."
The KratomComments.org website simplifies the process of submitting comments to the DEA through Regulations.gov and also provides kratom community members with an assurance that there will be an independent record of their submissions – one that is not subject to federal computer problems (as were experienced shortly after the comment period opened) or any concerns about "missing" or otherwise "lost" comment submissions to the DEA.
The American Kratom Association is proud to have been instrumental in helping to coordinate the broad-based national opposition to the DEA's attempt to effectively ban kratom. In addition to creating KratomComments.org, AKA also:
The America Kratom Association, a consumer-based non-profit organization, is here to set the record straight, giving voice to those suffering and protecting our rights to possess and consume kratom. AKA represents tens of thousands of Americans, each of whom have a unique story to tell about the virtues of kratom and its positive effects on their lives. www.americankratom.org
