What is Khat and why have I never heard of it? Most of you are probably familiar with Kratom ( Mitragyna speciosa ). How about the coca plant that cocaine is made from? What about Cannabis, and psychedelic mushrooms? You should be seeing a trend by now. These are examples of natural drugs if you will ( not like crack ). When we look at synthetic legal versions of these substances we can see a clear difference in their safety. The real danger is not the plants, it's the prohibition of the plants.
Khat is a plant, and natural and powerful narcotic stimulant. It was enjoyed all around the world where it used to be legal until governments worldwide took action against the harmless plant. Khat was outlawed in the United States in 1993. There were never any recorded deaths from its use or even the slightest bit of danger involved that anyone could observe. The real danger to public health came following the prohibition of this new enemy of the drug war and pharmaceutical industry.
Following the decision to outlaw Khat in 1993, chemist and drug dealers saw an opportunity. Someone figured out how to take the active alkaloid produced by the Khat plant called cathinone, and turn it into the infamous "bath salts". Never in the history of the use of Khat were there any dangerous and bizarre news stories related to its consumption. Bath salts on the other hand, was and still is a nightmare. All of this was because the world health organization thinks it was addictive. At least no one ever took some Khat and then turned into a cannibal zombie. Thanks law makers for another incredibly stupid decision.
What bothers me the most about this secret war on plants, is just that.. Most of these substances are not known to the mainstream because they have been kept silent by political criminal psychopaths. Everyone is familiar with the classic street drugs, heroine, crack, meth, and pills, but Khat? No one has heard of it! Are they also aware that all of those street drugs are all either derived from or synthesized from plants? ( even some pills ). The war on drugs is really there to push synthetic alternatives on the public, while keeping their natural and free sources quiet. There are schedule 1 substances in many plants that the average person has never heard of.
I'm proud to help spread the truth about Khat and other plants that this international drug war has attempted to defeat. I find it sad that people are not taking initiative to couteract these malicious laws. Just as we can petition Marijuana legalization into act, we too can remove Khat and other plants/plant alkaloids from being scheduled and made illegal. Making nature illegal or punishable in any way, is a sure fire sign you and the rest of your people need to take back over your government.
