Movement afoot to help keep kratom legal to help the many that need it #TAKEACTION

As many of you know, nine noted scientists have started working with the American Kratom Association (AKA) and have authored a letter to President Trump’s White House Opioid Crisis Team Leader Kellyanne Conway and Acting DEA Administrator Robert W. Patterson.
In their letter, the scientists called out the FDA directly for their use of “bad science” when determining the safety profile of kratom.
And that’s why you and I must demand they disregard the FDA’s latest disinformation campaign against kratom.
There are organizations across the United States and within the Federal Government working day and night to criminalize kratom.
They don’t care about the truth, the science, or the disastrous impacts banning kratom would have on millions of Americans.
Below is the text of the petition being sent to President Trump and Ms. Conway:
We the undersigned ask for your immediate action to protect the freedom of consumers to make their own health care decisions and stop the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from their broad regulatory overreach and the criminalization of millions of Americans who use kratom.
Kratom is a safe herbal supplement that is used by Americans to manage their health and well-being. Many have found kratom to be an effective alternative pain management therapy to dangerously addictive and deadly opioids. Leading scientists have concluded that banning kratom will create an unsafe kratom black market, and force kratom users who manage acute or chronic pain to deadly opioids and will lead to increased opioid deaths in America.
Mr. President, we ask that you direct the FDA and the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) to research how kratom can best be used as both an alternative pain management therapy, and as a potential step-down from opioid addiction; and direct the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to return the proposed scheduling recommendation for kratom to the FDA and NIDA for those additional studies — and leave those Americans who use kratom for their personal health and well-being alone!
Once you sign this petition, please forward this post to friends, family and even neighbors. Even if they are not a kratom consumer, please try to get their help in supporting this petition.

Take Action: help stop the essential ban of Kratom!

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. Featured Image -- 3019

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! 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.

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.
