The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration says it plans to soon ban kratom, an herbal substance from Southeast Asia. Kratom tea is popular with people who drink it as an alternative to alcohol or to combat chronic pain and addiction. One place you can get it is a local kava bar in Carrboro called Krave.
