Eugene Center for Ethnobotanical Studies is hosting a kratom rally 9 pm, Friday Sept 30 at Kesey Square with informal speakers followed by a march to the federal building on 8th.
Organziers say that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency “has filed a notice of intent to schedule and ban kratom by midnight, Sept. 30. Countless people depend on this safe and effective herbal remedy related to coffee, sacred to Buddhists, who have used it safely for thousands of years. Many of you depend on this healing leaf for your general well-being, pain and suffering, depression, anxiety, PTSD, opioid dependency and more.”
