    Meth is not exactly their cup of tea. They did, however, bring with them a penchant for a plant-derived stimulant called khat (which is not known to be particularly flammable). It is illegal here and the Otanga grocery was actually in trouble for selling it a couple years ago.  It is considered less harmful than tobacco. It's about as harmful as a cup of coffee, and numerous recent studies have generally found the same. Hooray War on Drugs! The Netherlands has even banned it. The UK was one of the few western hold-outs because its studies found no evidence that khat harmful. For some reason they decided to ban it anyway this past July; they put it in the same drug class as ketamine.
