This week on In the Hive, after a chance encounter with an unfamiliar word, we delve into the world of a plant native to Southeast Asia that has both opioid-like and stimulant properties: Kratom. How is it used? What do we know about the risks involved in taking Kratom? And why is there a state law governing its distribution in Utah?
