Podcast: Building Government Frameworks for Responsible Kratom Use


Mac Haddow

One of the leading advocates in the kratom industry, Mac Haddow spent years working in US government relations, including acting as Chief of Staff at the US Department of Health and Human Services. Today, he is working tirelessly to protect the rights of kratom users and vendors, traveling throughout the US to promote nationwide adoption of the Kratom Consumer Protection Act. In this episode, Mac and Paul discuss the responsible use of kratom—its benefits, risks, and concerns—and also touch on the topic of corruption within the FDA regulatory and approval process.

Mac Haddow spent much of his career in government and politics, first as the campaign manager for Orrin Hatch, and later as Chief of Staff at the Department of Health and Human Services in the Reagan administration. In that role, he saw firsthand the bias of the FDA towards natural products and dietary supplements. Today, he is Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the American Kratom Association. He is dedicated to keeping kratom available for responsible use, and to fighting the FDA’s disinformation campaign against kratom.
