Griffiths, P., Gossop, M., Wickenden, S., et al (1997) A transcultural pattern of drug use: qat (khat) in the UK. British Journal of Psychiatry, 170, 281-284.

Conclusions Qat users who continue to use this drug when it is transplanted from a traditional context may experience difficulties. Qat use can also be seen as playing a positive role in supporting the cultural identity of the Somalian community. Severe problems were rarely reported. Qat consumption should be considered when addressing health-related topics with patients from those communities in which qat use is common.
