“The incident happened in May when investigators say Russell, and employee of Crossroads of Pinellas, was driving LaPointe back from a doctor’s appointment. Russell decided to stop by his home and told detectives he ingested two packages of Kratom, a substance made from a tree that is sometimes used as a recreational drug.” Read the article HERE.
Let us read this part again: “told detectives he ingested two packages of Kratom“.
Take too much of kratom and you will throw it up. The body will reject an “overdose” of kratom. In fact, here are a couple of reputable sources that explain what might happen if you take “too much” kratom:
From Kratom Science (Pro-Kratom article) – Can you Overdose on Kratom? Short answer, no.
From The Recovery Village (Bias) – Is Kratom Safe? (It talks about possible side effects/overdose reactions).
It is important to make clear that ANYTHING can be a danger to a person who has an abusive/addictive personality. Everything in moderation is key. You can have bad withdrawals from sugar, caffeine, etc.
