dc.description.abstractKhat is an evergreen perennial plant grown in the Horn of Africa and Arabian Peninsula for its natural stimulant properties. With estimated daily users between five and ten million daily, khat has an incredible impact in areas of cultivation and use. The plant is an important factor in Ethiopia, influencing politics, the economy, and social interactions. Regulation, domestically and internationally, represents a particular controversy surrounding the plant. This thesis explores khat cultivation and use in Ethiopia through scholarly literature review, personal experience, expert opinions, and media impressions in order to stimulate a more informed and holistic discourse on the plant and its cultivation and use.en_US
