Methods of Using Kava
Kava is a legal substance for use and consumption in the United States. Although it is most popular among Pacific cultures in Polynesia, Micronesia, Australia, and other nearby areas, a wider, more globalized market has introduced this plant to American consumers. Americans typically use kava in the following ways:
- Prepared in a drink, whether mixed in or made to a culture's traditions
- As a part of an herbal supplement
- In modern medication
Beyond causing users to enter into a state of relaxation and calmness, kava may also show significant changes to a person's ability to drive properly. Drivers may be charged with DUI if they are caught driving while using kava, as this drug is treated similarly to other medications and herbal treatments.
The line between what is permissible and what is considered off-limits to drivers in the United States can prove difficult for some drivers. With some herbal supplements not considered potent enough to reasonably be attached to a DUI charge while others are considered clear grounds for a violation, it is easy to feel confused.
