We have some great news that needs urgent action BY 5pm ET TUESDAY! We, with our lobbyist’s help, have found some champions in Congress to write a bipartisan “Dear Colleague” letter asking the DEA to slow down this process.
The letter asks, among other things, that the Director of OMB and Acting Director of the DEA delay a final decision on the placement of Kratom as a schedule I, provide ample time for public comment on this significant decision, and resolve any inconsistencies with other Federal Agencies regarding the use of Kratom.
So this is what we need you to do!!! Find your Rep here and e-mail them over the weekend! http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ Then use the number below to call YOUR representative first thing Monday morning. Tell them you are a responsible adult consumer of Kratom for help with ______ (ailment) and ask that they please contact Congressman Pocan’s office to sign-on to the Pocan/Salmon Dear Colleague letter on this issue.
Yesterday, May 7, 2014, the U.S. Government wasted tremendous resources, through its Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Internal Revenue Service (IRS) along with other federal, state, and local partners announced the culmination of Project Synergy Phase II, an ongoing effort quash the free market. Since January and leading up to early this morning, nationwide enforcement operations have taken place targeting businesses that have operated in the United States.
Officers Work Against Individual Rights
Palm Beach Gardens Police Arrest Twelve For No Legitimate Reason
Palm Beach Gardens, Florida – The Libertarian Party of Palm Beach County (LPPBC) is disgusted at the lack of respect our local, county, state, and federal authorities have for human rights and an American’s ability to participation in victim less, voluntary transactions.
This morning the Palm Beach Gardens police, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, the U.S. Marshall’s, and the DEA all participated in a scheme to waste tax dollars while dozens of these public servants should have spent their time protecting the public. What were they doing? Hoping to garner headlines for busting drug dealers? However, that is not the whole story. These “drug traffickers” stole nothing and didn’t create victims in their supposed “crimes”. Where are the victims?
The accused participated in filling their legitimate prescriptions for oxymoron at their local drug store (a legal transaction) and instead of injecting the prescriptions decided to sell them. And for that, we have arrested twelve people supposedly to make our streets safer, however this type of transaction happens everyday in Palm Beach County and without any victims.
The Libertarian Party of Palm Beach County feels strongly that our police forces should be focused on crimes with actual victims rather than waste their time and resources (and the public’s tax dollars) on frivolous victim less “crimes” such as these. Each U.S. Citizen should have the right to participate voluntary transactions without threat by the strong arm of the law. We feel this ideology shift would more than double the resources available for true crime prevention, and significantly reduce the number of violent criminals at work in Palm Beach County.
