Petition to stop the khat ban in UK

Not only is the potential of harm low, but the stimulant is used a very few people in the UK. Only 0.2% of the general population use khat. This begs the question why would the government look to ban khat, especially when in 2011 the Home Office published a report which stated “The social consequences of khat’s illegality […] are likely to be profound given “the criminalisation of users and sellers” and the creation of “illegal drugs markets.” The answer to this question may lie in who this 0.2% of people who use khat are. Khat use is associated with Somali and Yemeni immigrant communities, and the fears about khat use have risen in parallel with public hysteria regarding Islamic radicalism. As the point of focus for ‘the war on terror’ drifts from the Arabian peninsula to the horn of Africa, reports in the media of the khat industry funding terrorist groups in Kenya and Somalia have begun to arise. In addition we have been inundated with scare stories about khat chewing houses in England becoming recruiting grounds for Islamic extremists. In this context, the ban on khat appears to be aimed more at the people who may use khat as opposed to the dangers of the stimulant itself. To enforce the ban is to expose the Somali and Yemeni communities to increase police surveillance, giving further licence for young males to be repeatedly stopped and searched. MP's admit this will antagonise already marginalised communities.

Petition to stop the khat ban in UK

You all know these mofos banned khat 6 month ago in the UK well people are fighting against this ridiculous ban because 1- its futile the khat is still coming in contraband but x5 the price from 3£ to 15£ there's also the dry one 5£. The only looser here is the farmer and consumer and the government for khat tax. 2- it's not as dangerous as cigarette or alcohol. So sign and pass this petition forward to your contacts my fellow Somalis. "stop Khat Ban" e-petitions link below. http://epetitions. direct.gov.uk/peti tions/61591  (Jan 26, 2015 | post #1)
