    Don’t worry!
    The Americans are coming to setup a terrorist training camp.
    Maybe the CIA can do a bit of dealin’ too. Like Afghanistan.

    So the War on Drugs and the War on Terror are teaming up to keep Yemen
    thirsty, eh? I wonder if this is what all those drone strikes are really
    about? The Neo-Fascists are just mad that cannabis is getting legalized so
    they’re taking it out on Yemen…

    If this isn’t proof that the Libertarian way is the right way, then nothing
    is.

    Gotta love Capitalism, unregulated bullshit. It’s the doom of all of us.

    I came here to see how the RT viewers would find a way to blame this on
    Jews and Communists.

    Drugs are better than listening to RT. Marajwana has more comman sense.

    How about focusing on how to increase water supply instead of blaming on
    Khat? Next, water supply shortage because people are drinking the water…

    She didn’t look too comfortable there. Unsurprisingly.

    Oh but the bright side is did you see one single obese person in the entire
    video? LOL One day someone in power will realize how unique Kat is.

    Kat is able to kill your appetite and eliminate hunger pangs while allowing
    users to maintain the same energy level as someone eating 3 meals a day.

    When it comes to appetite suppressants/energy boosters Kat is in a class
    all its own. No other does all three functions so perfectly.

    Sooner or later it will become the drug of the thin elite worldwide and the
    #1 diet drug for everyone.

    That’s probably what would happen in the West if you’d legalize marihuana

    This seems like a government problem. The subsidization which creates cheap
    water is most likely a huge part of the problem.

    Can’t they use desalination plants and pump purified seawater onto their
    fields (and even into the underground aquifers, replenishing them)? Maybe
    even combining the desalination unit with a tidal wave power generator
    thereby reducing costs and making it more economical.

    I’m dissapointed to see RT calling plants “drugs”, it’s not a “drug”
    problem. It’s a lack of planning problem. Build some Solar Powered
    Desalination plants & pipe the water in, no big deal.

    khat is not a drug, this is like coffee and much better than alcohol.

    Uproot all of your food sources for drugs… genious. In 10 years or lese I
    am willing to bet the people will be protesting qat and blaming it onntheir
    government for not stopping it, yet they will still buy it, and by then
    some mega corporation will be established making big bucks and making sure
    qat stays on the market. Watch these events and look learn world for they
    aren’t far from you
