TONIGHT at 11: Kratom & Kava, a natural high or a dangerous drink?

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Ever heard of Kava or Kratom? They are legal substances that give users either a sense of relaxation or rush of energy respectively.

Kava is made from the roots of a shrub that grows in the South Pacific. Kratom comes from a tropical tree that grows in Thailand. Both are brewed into a type of drink that are gaining popularity in the Port City.

Tonight at 11 Ashlea Kosikowski gets a firsthand taste of the drinks and talks to both those in favor and opposed them.
