Qat/Khat and getting the wrong answer...

Drugs advisory group decides against banning qat in UK | Politics | The Guardian

I don't chew Khat, and to be honest I haven't been impressed with the people that I have met who do (but then I don't meet nice people often).

So. in the opinion of this educated and experienced forum - Qat.

Should we ban it in this country?

The Guardian puts the headline of :

The Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs said there was insufficient evidence that Qat caused health or wider societal problems to justify a ban in Britain. The expert advisers also said they found no evidence that the qat trade was directly linked to serious or organised crime or used to fund the al-Shabab Islamist group
Well the last drugs expert to go against SHMBO was fired (as was Keith Hellawell). It seems a bad idea to disagree with the Home Office.

(Maybe that's me being cycnical).
