Kratom is a very dangerous drug! This is so sad. This guy is only 26 years old. When he was a kid, do you think he planned to grow up and be a drug dealer? How did he get into drugs? We need to educate our youth so they don’t make the same mistakes.
NASHVILLE: A one-month investigation into the large scale distribution of Kratom has resulted in the arrest of a 26-year-old Clarksville man on felony drug charges and the seizure of more than five pounds of the drug.
He is charged with possessing and selling a controlled substance and driving on a revoked license.
The Metro Nashville Police found him advertising on the Internet concerning the sale of fresh and potent Kratom, a product of a tree native to Southeast Asia. The substance is an illegal narcotic in Tennessee. According to the narconon.org website, Kratom can impact the human body by causing edginess, vomiting, sweating, constipation, delusions, respiratory depression, psychotic episodes, hallucinations and paranoia.
