chattels: SANAA, Yemen - The consumption and cultivation of khat, a plant chewed from its stimulating effect, is an ancient tradition in Yemeni culture and is widely used at various social occasions and events.
chattels: gimme sum dat khat :)
[05:58:19 PM] chattels: According to khat consumers, chewing the plant makes them feel euphoric and energized. It also increases their ability to focus and carry out their daily work.
These characteristics have made the plant popular and consumed extensively. Although it is grown locally, the amount on the market has been reduced as a result of the current blockade on Yemen and a fuel shortage.
These factors have increased the near-constant demand. Despite documented health risks associated with khat, international organizations do not consider it an addictive substance.

chattels: Catha edulis (khat, qat) is a flowering plant native to the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. Among communities from these areas, khat chewing has a history as a social custom dating back thousands of years.
chattels: Khat contains a monoamine alkaloid called cathinone, an amphetamine-like stimulant, which is said to cause excitement, loss of appetite and euphoria.
In 1980, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified it as a drug of abuse that can produce mild-to-moderate psychological dependence (less than tobacco or alcohol), although WHO does not consider khat to be seriously addictive.
 The plant has been targeted by anti-drug organizations such as the DEA.
 It is a controlled substance in some countries, such as Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States (de facto), while its production, sale, and consumption are legal in other nations, including Djibouti, Ethiopia, Somalia and Yemen.
chattels: The khat plant is known by a variety of names, such as qat and gat in Yemen, qaat and jaad in Somalia, and chat in Ethiopia. It is also known as jimma in the Oromo language.
Khat has been grown for use as a stimulant for centuries in the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. There, chewing khat predates the use of coffee and is used in a similar social context.
chattels: Its fresh leaves and tops are chewed or, less frequently, dried and consumed as tea, to achieve a state of euphoria and stimulation; it also has anorectic side effects. The leaves or the soft part of the stem can be chewed with either chewing gum or fried peanuts to make it easier to chew.
chattels: In other countries, outside of its core area of growth and consumption, khat is sometimes chewed at parties or social functions.
It may also be used by farmers and labourers for reducing physical fatigue or hunger, and by drivers and students for improving attention.
Within the counter-culture segments of the elite population in Kenya, khat (referred to locally as veve or miraa) is used to counter the effects of a hangover or binge drinking, similar to the use of the coca leaf in South America.
chattels: Khat consumption induces mild euphoria and excitement, similar to that conferred by strong coffee. Individuals become very talkative under the influence of the plant.
The effects of oral administration of cathinone occur more rapidly than the effects of amphetamine pills; roughly 15 minutes as compared to 30 minutes in amphetamine.
Khat can induce manic behaviours and hyperactivity, similar in effects to those produced by amphetamine.
chattels: The use of khat results in constipation. Dilated pupils (mydriasis) are prominent during khat consumption, reflecting the sympathomimetic effects of the drug, which are also reflected in increased heart rate and blood pressure.

chattels: Withdrawal symptoms that may follow occasional use include mild depression and irritability. Withdrawal symptoms that may follow prolonged khat use include lethargy, mild depression, nightmares, and slight tremor. Khat is an effective anorectic (causes loss of appetite).
Long-term use can precipitate: negative impact on liver function, permanent tooth darkening (of a greenish tinge), susceptibility to ulcers, and diminished sex drive.
