[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today released the following statement regarding the announcement of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to delay a final decision on placing kratom on the list of Schedule I drugs and begin a period of public comment: “I’m pleased to hear that the DEA delayed placing kratom on their list of Schedule I drugs,” said Congressman Cohen. “It’s important to have an open process to hear from consumers, researchers and stakeholders who would be impacted by this decision.

The science has been in for a long time, and keeping marijuana on Schedule I—with heroin and LSD—is ludicrous. Accurate scientific findings, in addition to public comme

[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, today praised the U.S. Department of Justice for announcing that it would begin collecting data early next year on the use of force by federal law enforcement agents and help local police departments report data on “in custody” deaths and collect information on a variety of other police actions. “I am pleased the Department of Justice will begin collecting data on force used by federal agents and will help local law enforcement collect data of their own, something my bill, the National Statistics on Deadly Force Transparency Act, has called for,” said Congressman Cohen. “Before we can truly address the problem of excessive force used by law enforcement we have to understand the nature of the problem and that begins with accurate data. This is a significant step in the right direction and a critical component to rebuilding trust bet
