Let me be quick and to the point...we need to flood the Senate offices with phone calls IMMEDIATELY!
It has come to our attention that Congressman Goodlatte and Senator Grassley are trying to force the Senate to vote on passing SITSA without a Senate Hearing. There is no conference committee, so their pathway to get this done is pretty clear.
We must act now to stop them. Our lobbyists have been on Capitol Hill trying to block this from happening, but we need your help.
Make no mistake, if SITSA passes, there will be some who will try to use it to immediately ban kratom.
CLICK ON THE LINKprovided to call your U.S. Senators and let them (or their staff) know that you want them to oppose the inclusion of SITSA.
We must act right away.
Please take a few minutes right now and click on the link to call you Senator.
TALKING POINTS FOR PHONE CALL:
- Identify yourself as a constituent of your Senator and tell them the city where you live (the staff may ask for your zip code)
- Explain to the staff that you are calling to let the Senator know that you are opposed to SITSA Bill (Stop the Importation and Trafficking of Synthetic Analogues Act) because, without an amendment excluding kratom, SITSA will give the Attorney General unfettered power to ban kratom without having to rely on any science.
- Tell the staff the House is demanding SITSA be put back into H.R. 6 that was passed by the Senate without any Senate Hearing or input. Tell them you are strongly opposed to that demand from the House.
- Tell the staffer that kratom has helped you (or someone you know) improve their overall health and well-being
- Ask them to go to www.americankratom.org for more information.
- Thank the staffer and the Senator for their service
