According to Shia Fiqh. For those who don't know, Qat is a leaf that is chewed. The leaf gives a stimulant type effect. I've never done it, but it's popular where I live and I've heard different opinions on whether it is considered an intoxicant (and thus haram) or just a mild stimulant, like coffee and halal.

:salam:

I thought importing qat was banned in the US? 

Anyway, it is considered as a plague by several Yemeni organizations who start to fight that practice. They say it is one of the main budgets of a household, it reduces productivity in a society, and people are actually addicted to chewing. 

You are familiar with Arguileh and the effects it has on youths in Lebanon, qat is x100.

I spoke to a white non muslim drug addict. He told me he had done it all in terms of drugs.

He took khaat from a friend and had such a bad trip he had to go to hospital.

It's just a singular case but I'd keep well away from it. Maybe ask a Dr about its effects ? 

Then make an informed decision.

Just for background info:

It was not until 1975 that United Nations laboratories first discovered the active ingredient of khat to be cathinone, an amphetamine-like substance that has sympathomimetic, euphoric, and mood-altering effects among other health consequences.

Answer: It appears that it is a narcotic substance, and its ruling applies to it, which is the prohibition of its use if it seriously harms, even from the point of view of addiction.
