Have your say

A six-year battle by MP Mark Lancaster to have the drug Khat classified as a Class C substance will come to an end tomorrow, following Mr Lancaster’s campaign which has had strong support from the city’s Somali community.

It contains a chemical which is an organic amphetamine, and is known to cause hyperactivity, sleeplessness, hallucinations and in some cases liver damage.
