Khat (Qat) is a mildly narcotic plant that has been chewed and enjoyed socially for centuries in the Horn of Africa.
It has widespread use in Somalia, Somaliland, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea and parts of Kenya. If you have traveled to any of these countries, or plan to, Khat is freely sold at open markets (usually in the morning if you are close to a growing area).
