    I am writing in regards to SB 282, which is attempting to schedule constituent alkaloids in the plant leaf kratom: Mitragynine & 7-Hydroxymitragynine.

    Kratom is a tropical plant in the coffee family from Southeast Asia that has been used to promote energy and support general health and vitality. Kratom is inherently safe and shares many therapeutic constituents with other widely recognized medicinal plants such as Cat’s Claw and Yohimbe, which currently enjoy widespread safe usage as dietary supplements in the United States and abroad.

    Most people use kratom as a dietary supplement to promote energy and to support general health and vitality, joint and muscle comfort, and general well-being. These consumers deserve access to safe and effective kratom products that benefit their lives.

    We have much anecdotal and historical evidence as to the safety and efficacy of kratom, and we urge you to investigate the science before reacting to misinformation disseminated to stigmatize kratom and those who consume it.

    In light of the above, I am asking that you please vote NO on SB 282.
