Cool Khat

Khat is the new craze drug, yet one Village Voice writer can't seem to find the stuff anywhere. People talked about it in Minneapolis (the home to the largest Somali population in the U.S.) all the time, but it never seemed to be on the street either, probably cuz it sounds about as strong as caffeine.


Someone in my social issues class actually did a report on this. He claimed he could get his hands on it fairly easily and its effects are about the same as cocaine, although for a shorter amount of time.

(Also, I wonder if the '80s wouldn't have happened if people like me hadn't thought that coke was about as strong as caffeine.)
