To the Honorable Members of the NY State Senate regarding Bill S6345,

My name is ________, I’m a __-year old _________ from _________ and I’d like to voice my concern about S645 being reviewed by the Senate.  Then BRIEFLY summarize:

-How you came to use Kratom (did you learn about it in a chronic pain support group, etc?)

-What ailments you suffer, what treatments haven’t worked (prescriptions, surgery, etc.), how long you’ve been dealing with your condition, how long you’ve been using kratom and how many/what medications you’ve been able to quit.

-What Kratom means to you (has it given you your life back, have you gone back to work, can you play with your, exercise or travel, etc., something anecdotal about why kratom is important and should be available).

-Conclusion: Kratom is a safe alternative to pharmaceutical drugs with important medicinal uses and has changed my life, so I’m asking you to please vote against S6345.

If you have questions about Kratom, please visit www.kratomhelps.org. Thank you for your time and service to the state.

Sincerely,

__________
