Kava ban creating economic and social difficulties in the Top End communities

Date posted: 21 May 2015

An online academic and author who writes on a diverse range of public policy, political and other issues believes a ban on kava in Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory has created economic and social difficulties.

Peter Botsam, who does regular and ongoing voluntary work across the Top End, says while kava was once legally distributed, the ban has created an escalation of an illegal and out of control market.
