American Kratom Association Petitions Ohio State Board of Pharmacy To Rescind

AKA Petitions Ohio State Board of Pharmacy To Rescind Recommendation To Schedule Kratom

WASHINGTONOct. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Following the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy’s proposal to add kratom to the list of Schedule I prohibited drugs, the American Kratom Association (AKA) submitted a petition signed by 22,765 American citizens who support continued access to safe kratom products—including 2,847 Ohio citizens—requesting the Board of Pharmacy rescind its proposal to ban kratom.  The Petition directly challenged the scientific justification used by the Board of Pharmacy and outlined new and definitive scientific evidence that kratom is safe for consumer use, and it is neither dangerously addictive or responsible for any deaths as cited in the Board’s Resolution.  The AKA Petition requests the Board rescind its proposed ban on kratom and rely upon new and independent science rather than the disinformation being disseminated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
