We, the undersigned, believe that mitragyna speciosa (commonly known as kratom) is an immensely beneficial herb for health and wellbeing and that its use should not be restricted.

This plant has done wonders for me and others in my life. It needs to remain accessible to the people.
i dont know why anybody would call this a legal high, its basically coffee but quite a bit better. i've taken daily for 2 years and have had no negative side effects.

I use kratom often for back pain (got hit by a car) Healthcare doesn't really fit in my ratio currently (based on all of the issues pending currently) so I find it's a good cure for my pain.
KEEP IT LEGAL!!!
I had surgery done recently, and didn't want to take the morphine, codeine, and oxy they wanted to give me. Kratom did the trick!! THANK YOU NATURE!

stop keeping us from good health!!! We don't want to be addicted to pharmaceuticals anymore!!!
Drug prohibition is idiotic. It didn't work for alcohol and it doesn't work for anything else. Stop it.

It comes from the earth, keep it legal!
Kratom is a great alternative to pain management for those who prefer to explore more holistic options. Banning of it would take the power of treatment out of the people and give even more power to the pharmaceutical industry. Please maintain the balance.

A plant; just like an idea, a faith, or a book, is sacred and should never be legislated.
|Mr. Robin Largent||USA||
keep it legal
|Brandi Burnett||United States|
Kratom is a medicinal plant. You cannot take what is a natural right. Education is required, not restriction.
Kratom has proven itself to be an amazing energy supplement & an effective pain relief alternative. It is much easier on the nervous system, liver & kidneys than coffee, prescription & over-the-counter painkillers, which are LEGAL.As Kratom should remain!

Leave it alone! Government needs to realize life is pretty crappy. They need to worry about real problems, maybe our economy. I could write a lot more, but I'm just a another number here in the United States.
Kratom has kept my chronic back pain away, controlled any desire to drink and coming from an alcoholic family that says a lot! I have my own business now whereas my back pain kept me from being able to work to my ability before! We are adults.
It's the only anti-psychotic that has ever worked for me. I can afford it too, and most Rx I tried I couldn't for more than a few months.
Keep kratom legal ! Stop all this nonsense about it being a "legal high" and "problem substance".It is a wonderful herb with fantastic properties.
|Matthew Emerson Roseberry||United States||
I have had severe anxiety all my life. I have been prescribed many Big Pharma drugs to treat this but all trials resulted in worse side effects than the original condition. I have been using kratom for 3 years now and am anxiety and side effect free.
Kratom show not be consider more like a drug then coffee, it is use for many purpose like energizer, painkiller, sedative, anxiolic and antidepressant. Its a very good natural alternative to many synthetic pharmaceutical. Keep this legal for all those who need it.

Herb lore not herb law! Plants over pills.
|Stephanie Dordje Barlow||Australia||
Kratom is a powerful healing plant and should not be banned under any circumstances. Just because some people use this plant recreationally does not justify banning its use.
DO NOT BAN THIS PLANT! Regulate it, or even tax it, but do not ban it.
Please do not ban this wonderful substance.
|Angel M Rodriguez||United States||
I dont understand why this plant is being even considered a "drug"
The benefits of this plant are unmistakable. Every thing in this world can be abused but it does not mean we should ban everything. Alcohol is abused everyday but you do not see that being banned because the government makes to much money from it.
|Kenneth B. Weingard||USA|
a wonderfull plant, that helps many people to manage their addiction to opiates, without beeing really addicted to intself.Also for my beloved wive with heir "womans" issues. Having a warm an relaxing footbath with it keeps her up an makes her happy.
Another reason kratom should remain legal because I believe in being tough on crime. Assuming someone who is tough on crime who isn't a moron knows being tough on crime =tough on laws. More laws = more criminals obviously. Less laws= less criminals.
I have bags of kratom that sit in my drawers for months. Severe pain it's great but it is about the same as a codeine 3/4 or a Vicodin in effects and addiction. But it can be used for medicinal purposes. Not that cigarettes aren't medicinal.
|Marisa Heacock||United States||
This plant helped me kick a horrible opiate addiction. it has helped many people do the same and more. It is an effective way to deal with chronic pain, anxiety and depression just to name a very few things it can help manage.
|Zachary Lee Barr||USA||
Fortunately, some of us can see through the guise of greediness our government displays. Legalities are a game for the BAR association to make money, nothing more, nothing less, unless, of course, you injure somebody.
|Bill York||United States|
Funny how alcohol and cigarettes are totally legal and both are life-threatening, yet you want to ban something harmless like Kratom? I really don't get it, but please don't ban this plant that actually benefits people.
|Clayton Kyle Dahlen||United States||
Its helped me get offf the evil Pills which is great i have my life back again and i live in florida.. its bad here.
|Lana Lokteff||United States|
How can they seize a legal plant? Bring back free America
|Sean A Dana||United States||
If it weren't for Kratom, I'd still be on opiates. However, with Kratom there's a limit to how much it can affect you; so there's no motivation to abuse it. You CAN'T get nodding-off high on Kratom. It is a safe, responsible alternative to ALL opiates.
Keep it LEGAL!!!
|Everett W Vastine||USA||
I need kratomn for my back pain,and without it I couldn't get through the day.Kratom has been A real life saver for me so please don't it ..
A Very useful plant, tax it, keep it legal.

Big business is trying to take our right away by taking mother natures products and making them illegal to use.
This has benefited me in so many ways. I have a right as a natural person to use herbal remedies. I am NOT a lab rat who will take pharma drugs
Relieved severe arthritis, off meds and alcohol.
|douglas h hoefle||usa|
|Joshua Pelkie||United States|
Keep it legal. It's not harmful and it is a perfect alternative to opiates without the life threatening side effects.
|dale cleife||uk england||
kratom is more like caffine than anything elce, its not addictive, and neither does it have the nasty effects that caffine has on some people, its not a synthetic version of anything like the herbalhighs are, and as someone that has used both i can say this has no danger whatsoever.
Please keep this plant legal. It has improved my quality of life immensely, and allows me to be a functional and productive member of society without being a slave to synthetic meds. I would have never graduated with my masters in chemistry without it.
|Jim Sulli||united states|
|Brendan G Brown||United States|

I think that Kratom should be kept legal and I think Marijuana should become legal as well.
I think that Kratom has good effects on Anxiety, Sleep,stress and it has a good effect on withdrawal form Opiates.
|Dakota McFarlan||United States||
Kratom has provided more relief than anything else Ive tried for my fibromyalgia pain, providing basically complete relief. More effective than prescription painkillers and prescriptions for fibromyalgia (ive tried many). Its a miracle herb!

nothing is wrong with this lovely herb
