Contact Congress to stop FDA & Big Pharma's attempt to control supplements and get power to ban kratom

The Prescription Drug User Fee Act reauthorization is being used to give the FDA even more power to threaten kratom and all supplements

First off, we understand this is getting into the legislative weeds, but this is incredibly important as it could change how all supplements and kratom are controlled by the FDA. 

The Prescription Drug User Fee Act or PDUFA is up for reauthorization, and proposed changes to it could give the FDA power to deny registration of all supplements; granting them power to require kratom to be registered, and therefore the power to deny registration and effectively ban all kratom products

Please contact your congressional representatives today! Go to Protectkratom.org/congress using the link below to complete the email contact for to tell Congressional officials not to support any attempts to require supplement registration.

Supplements are not prescription drugs, and shouldn't be treated the same.  

NOTE: The House Committee on Energy & Commerce is meeting on the PDUFA regulation for the House so we've created an additional contact form to be used for them as well. 

Why this matters: From the Alliance for Natural Health
"A well-organized, coordinated campaign from the FDA and Big Pharma is threatening access to the supplements you depend on. Using the false premise that supplements are unsafe, the FDA is working to gain more power over the regulation of supplements in order to further solidify Big Pharma’s monopoly over medicine. These efforts must be opposed.


Write to Congress and tell them to oppose efforts to establish a "mandatory filing" for supplements"

Rep Pocan Speaks on kratom at NIDA Hearing

Congressman Pocan (D-Wi) continues his strong commitment to allow science to dictate federal policy on kratom, and recognized the commitment of NIDA Director Volkow to kratom research that has led the way in showing the FDA position on kratom was plainly wrong.


Despite an onslaught of anti-kratom attacks, last week the Colorado and Missouri Kratom Consumer Protection Acts (KCPA) were approved by their state legislators. At present, we expect both Governors will sign the legislation.

With the passage earlier this year by Oregon, Colorado and Missouri become the 7th and 8th states to pass the KCPA. This is a momentous moment for all kratom protectors! Already in 2022 working together we have defeated numerous state kratom ban attempts, and now passed three more crucial pieces of consumer protection legislation. 

With your donations and grassroots support, the AKA is still actively working to pass KCPA in numerous states: including Kansas, Rhode Island, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

There are interim committee or other types of reviews ongoing in Washington, Hawaii, South Dakota, Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois, Vermont, Connecticut, Texas, New Hampshire, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Florida.

Thanks to everyone who has provided magnificent support to allow for the AKA’s efforts to continue this fight to keep pure and safe kratom legal and accessible to American consumers.
