**ACTION ALERT!! An IMPORTANT word from #NORML about #Marijuana #legislation #marijuananews #medicinalmarijuana #MARYJANE #CannabisCommunity #CannabisNews

NORML

The United Nations World Health Organization is due to review the current international classification of marijuana, THC, cannabidiol, and other related compounds and preparations this year. In the lead up, the WHO is asking member nations submit feedback, of which no nation is more influential than the United States.

Between now and April 23rd, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is seeking public comment from “interested persons” (i.e. you) regarding the Schedule 1 status of marijuana under international agreements.

Click here to join NORML in submitting comments.

We have made it incredibly easy for you to add your voice with thousands of other NORML members in making it clear: cannabis does not fit in a controlled substances agreement, let alone Schedule 1.

In the action alert, you will find a pre-drafted comment that we encourage you to amend and include any other important aspects you deem worthy. You can draw additional information from our “Factsheets” and “About Marijuana” pages to expand your position for these public comments once on the tool.

We will be collecting comments between now and April 23rd, then will be delivering them by hand to the FDA offices.

Make sure your voice is heard – submit a formal comment NOW

Democracy is not a spectator sport and here at NORML, we’re proud to have you on the team.

Together, we will re-legalize it!

A word from the Owner of LegalHerbalShop.com #Kratom #CBD #Vape #HerbalRemedies #LegalBud

As many of you know, LHS has been around since 2007.  Eleven years….Hard to imagine!

So, we have had our fair share of ups and downs in this volatile industry. Most of which has to do with credit card payment processing.  In a nutshell, what is happening is that the FDA is tightening their grip on this industry and closing down all Kratom and CBD merchant card processing accounts! Even though this is all FEDERALLY LEGAL!  It is not justified nor is it ethical or moral what they are doing.  We have fought a long, hard battle through the years. And, it does take a BIG toll on me. It is a constant uphill battile with a 1000lb weight on our shoulders, trying to climg this mountain.

This is WHAT THEY WANT! They want to make it difficult for us to do business. They make it difficult for you guys to purchase. But, guess what? WE HAVE NOT GIVEN UP IN 11 YEARS, AND WE INTEND TO KEEP FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT!  The fight that allows people to CHOOSE FOR THEMSELVES how they want to care for themselves. In this case, with ALL NATURAL, HEALTHY HERBS! It’s ridiculous we even have to say that! America? Free Commerce? Free Trade? Free to open a business and sell LEGAL products? It DOES NOT SEEM LIKE THAT ANYMORE! But, we are NOT giving up. We are STILL FIGHTING SO THAT YOU GUYS CAN HAVE ACCESS TO LEGAL HERBS! As the Owner, am I pissed? HELL YEAH! But, I have ALWAYS channeled my anger into positive energy to help grow thjis company. To help  search for  MORE HERBAL REMEDIES to offer to you. It motivates me even more. It turns me into a person with a fight, a cause, a reason to keep moving forward with a full head of steam.

I appreciate ALL our loyal followers and customers for your continued support and loyalty! it is appreciated more than you know. It gives me great pleasure when we receive phone callls and emails telling us how much we have changed your life for the better with our products. This is yet another HUGE motivation for me to keep going.

With that said….I wanted to announce that we will be going live with a NEW WEBSITE. Hopefully, by next week there will be a BRAND NEW, Totally Different LHS site!  Same Owner, magangers and staff. Just a new LOOK for our online store front. We are going to stream line our products and categories too. We will start off by offering our most popular categories.

You will only see the following categories:

KRATOM

CBD

LEGAL BUD

HERBAL SMOKE

We will slowly incorprate our other good selling products in the weeks and months to come. As well as discontinue selling products that do not do well on the site after we sell out of them.

If you do not see your favorite LHS product on the new site yet, please DO NOT hesitate to call us to place your order. We STILL will have everything in stock. Just not listed on the site (YET). It is going to be a clean, well layed out, more oraganized, interactive site, Making it easier to find your favorite products! I am excited about this new site launch, and so should YOU!

Positive changes coming to LHS!! Help keep up the good fight by supporting us. which, in turn helps us donate to the American Kratom Association, Botanical Education Alliance and fighht other legal battles associated with this industry! I want you to know that your purchases do go to good use!

Please hel SPREAD THE WORD on your Social Media sites about the upcomong NEW & IMPROVED LHS! And, if anyone has ANY recommendations for the new site, please do not hesitate to contact us and give an opinion. We ALWAYS appreciate customer feedback.

This is a day for the entire kratom community  to show friends/family, the FDA and the world, that the Kratom community is a wonderful group made up of normal people. Many people, myself included, have had trouble telling their friends/family about Kratom because they fear stigmatism. There has, unfortunately, been more bad press than good press about kratom. This is a way for us to all stick together and let the world know that we feel good about our healthy choice, we love kratom and we are willing to defend our rights. #IAmKratom

PETITION: Demand President Trump Stop the Criminalization of Kratom!

 

Kratom Warriors:
As many of you know, we just announced that nine noted scientists, working with the American Kratom Association (AKA), authored a letter to President Trump’s White House Opioid Crisis Team Leader Kellyanne Conway andActing 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:
———————————————————————————————————
PETITION TO PRESIDENT TRUMP AND KELLYANNE 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 email to friends, family and even neighbors. Even if they are not a kratom consumer, please try to get their help in supporting this petition.
It is only because of your continued support that we are able to keep fighting to protect kratom. Thank you for your immediate action today.

#TeamAKA Demands FDA Stop Its Disinformation Campaign Against #Kratom #KratomSavesLives #IamKratom #KeepKratomLegal

AKA Demands FDA Stop Its Disinformation Campaign Against Kratom

Washington, D.C. – February 8, 2018 – Nine leading scientists in substance addiction and safety wrote to White House Opioid Crisis Team Leader Kellyanne Conway and Acting DEA Administrator Robert W. Patterson requesting they disregard the FDA’s latest disinformation campaign against kratom. The scientists warned that “four surveys indicate that kratom is presently serving as a lifeline away from strong, often dangerous opioids for many of the several million Americans who use kratom. A ban on kratom that would be imposed by CSA Scheduling would put them at risk of relapse to opioid use with the potential consequence of overdose death. Similar unintended consequences are to be expected in some who would be forced to use opioids to manage acute or chronic pain.”
These scientists were united in their “collective judgment that placing kratom into Schedule I will potentially increase the number of deaths of Americans caused by opioids . . .”
The nine leading scientists directly challenged the claims by FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb that kratom is an opioid by pointing out the “available science is clear that kratom, although having effects on opioid receptors in the brain, is distinct from classical opioids (e.g. morphine, heroin, oxycodone, etc.) in its chemistry, biological effects, and origin (kratom is a tree in the coffee family, not the opium poppy family). Importantly, as commonly used in raw plant form, it does not appear to produce the highly addictive euphoria or lethal respiratory depressing effects of classical opioids.”
David Herman, Chairman of the AKA, called upon FDA Commissioner Gottlieb to pull back the curtain on the “black box voodoo computer model” that was unveiled by the FDA to justify their continued ‘War on Kratom,’ this time claiming their computer model conclusively shows kratom is an opioid, and therefore had to be banned.
“The FDA hoax on kratom is equivalent to the stunt pulled by Philip Davis, a graduate student at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, who got a nonsensical computer-generated paper accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal, ” Herman explained. “Davis and his colleagues used SCIgen, a program that generates nonsensical computer science papers. The FDA must have used the same code to generate their false report on kratom being as dangerous as opioids.”
The nine respected scientists pointed out that “kratom provides a far more favorable safety profile for consumers compared to more dangerously addictive and potentially deadly classical opioid medications.” They also pointed out that the FDA’s solution – to file a new drug application for kratom – made no sense because “the average time and cost of new drug development is more than 10 years and 2.5 billion dollars.”
The scientists also attacked the bad science the FDA used to claim deaths from kratom use, pointing out that “the fatalities that the FDA lists as having been associated with kratom include deaths with a wide variety of apparent causes in people suffering from various diseases and/or taking other substances that also likely contributed to their deaths. For example, it includes 9 fatalities in Sweden that resulted from an adulterated product that included the active substance of the prescription opioid tramadol (leading Swedish authorities to conclude that those deaths were caused by O-desmethyltramadol, not kratom).
The assertion that a scheduling recommendation can be based on a claim of deaths ‘associated with kratom’ rather than deaths ’caused by kratom’ is not, in our judgment, either scientifically valid nor the standard that was contemplated by the U.S. Congress for the scheduling of any substance under the CSA.”
Finally, the nine scientists argued that American consumers should continue to have access to kratom. “We affirm our belief that the existing science on kratom does not justify its placement into Schedule I of the CSA, nor for kratom to be added to any local or state Controlled Substances list that would effectively remove it from consumer access.”

#VICTORY for #Kratom in Mississippi…Thanks to YOU! You helped to #SAVEKRATOM & #KEEPKRATOMLEGAL

Victory in Mississippi!

Your efforts to save kratom made a difference.

We are thrilled to share that we’ve successfully defended the state of Mississippi from passing two Kratom related ban bills! SB 2475 has been called dead due to not making it out of committee by the bill deadline, and HB 974 has been passed out of the committee with a due pass recommendation with the two lines related to banning Kratom removed. We could not have done this without you – thank you all for your calls, emails, and other efforts to educate legislators in Mississippi. We’re closely watching Kansas and West Virginia, so stay tuned for updates on how you can help those states too!

With gratitude,
Botanical Education Alliance
