Drug 'Loophole' Frustrates Prosecutors [MO]

Drug 'Loophole' Frustrates Prosecutors
Khat Plant Not Illegal In Missouri

April 11, 2005

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A metro area prosecutor would like to eliminate what he calls a "loophole" in the state's drug laws.

Clay County District Attorney Dan White told KMBC's Bev Chapman that he's frustrated about laws pertaining to khat, a plant that is chewed to get high.

Khat is popular in Africa and southern Arabia. In the book and movie "Black Hawk Down," Somalian soldiers chewed khat to get high and kill.

The active ingredients in the plant are illegal in many states; but in some states, such as Missouri, the plant itself is not illegal.

"It's almost akin to saying THC is illegal, but not saying marijuana is illegal. So it creates a legal loophole," White said.

Prosecutors said they are starting to see more khat activity in the metro. Last year, police stopped a car in North Kansas City that was carrying 50 pounds of khat, and officers couldn't do anything to punish the seven people inside.

White testified before a state house committee last week that is considering a bill to change the law to make khat illegal.
