Qat Chat

Yemenis do chew a lot of qat (or khat), it seems. They have only 10 million or so adults, but 6 million of them indulge. And indulging is itself a time-consuming affair, if you can believe the headline in this story from the Yemen Times: "Qat: 22 million working hours wasted every day". Wasted? Apparently the Yemenis do not subscribe to Vice Squad's reluctance to count productivity effects as "costs" of drug use.
