Following last Sunday’s piece about the lies and misrepresentations that are being used to try and suggest that the UK government’s intention to classify Catha edulis, khat, under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 is based on something other than political dogma, I thought I would make khat the subject of the latest of the ‘Poisonous Plants 1-2-1’ videos.
I don’t know how many words I’ve written about this one plant but I do know that I have several books devoted to it in my library so trying to encapsulate the key points with the 121 seconds I allow myself was not easy.
What I hope I’ve done is provide an introduction to the plant and suggested that it has a very complex story worthy of further examination.
But, you’ll be the judge.
