AKA in Maryland and Kratom in Eastern Europe
I'm somewhat of a hermit. I see and socialize with my surfing tribe in the water, and that's about it I'm not a "joiner".
But when I received and saw an broadcast email announcement 9pm that my State Senate was having hearings to ban Kratom the next day ... Despite my natural instincts, I got up early, drove 2 hours, and waited to testify for 6 hours.
I was never more proud to join a group, and humbled by those others that faced far more serious challenges, who testified about how Kratom had given them their life back. Mac Haddow is the AKA lobby representative.
He is everything good in what a Lobbyist should be. It was remarkable to watch him work before the meeting with us regular people, and turnaround a ridiculous proposed legislation into a victory.
The point in this is: 99 times out of 100 I would have read the email announcement and stayed home.
DON'T STAY HOME. TESTIFY WHEN HEARINGS ARE HELD. The Mac used facts and logic that day, but he launched it off of the dramatic impact we made on Legislators in the room that day.
Secondly... Who can sell quality Kratom to my friends in Slovakia?
