American Kratom Association Discredits FDA Kratom Deaths Citing “Errors And Omissions”; Creates Petition To Reject Schedule 1 Recommendation
The AKA points to a number of discrepancies and inaccuracies with the FDA’s “kratom death toll,” including a death that’s listed twice, as well as untimely deaths that have no definitive causal connection with kratom. According to the AKA, these misrepresentations of mortality include suicides, a homicide by gunshot, and even a death involving a fall from a window.
Following this development, the AKA has launched a petition to prevent the FDA from illegalizing kratom on the grounds of falsified evidence. As of this writing, the petition has nearly 13000 signatures with a set end-goal of 40000.
