Northern Territory Police have seized 45 kilograms of kava in the Aboriginal community of Oenpelli in Arnhem Land.
The kava, which was found in a four-wheel-drive that was stopped for a random breath test, is worth about $54,000.
A 40-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman have been charged with possessing and supplying a trafficable amount of kava.
They have been granted bail and will go before court next month.

Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
