Berbera port on the verge of closing

Also we have to keep the population in mind. Around 3.5 million live in Somaliland while more than 7 million live in the rest of Somalia.

They consume more Khat than Somaliland, according to the only statistics available.



In all Somalia, 36.4% of respondents reported khat intake in the week previous to the interview (99% CI 19.3%–57.7%; see Table 3), with the highest levels of all in Bay/Bakol and Mogadishu South (69.4%, 99% CI 64.5%–74.2% and 61.4%, 99% CI 57.0%–65.8%). The estimates for the northern and southern/central part of the country did not differ (26.2%, 99% CI 14.6%–42.5% versus 50.7%, 99% CI 28.9%–72.2%). However, excessive khat use and its related effects seem to be more frequent in southern/central Somalia: consumption of more than two “bundles” per day in the previous week was less frequent in the northern part than in southern/central Somalia (4.0%, 99% CI 3.1%–5.2% versus 28.9%, 99% CI 9.6%–60.9%). Also in this region a greater number of respondents reported more than one sleepless night due to khat chewing in the week prior to the interview (14.5%, 99% CI 11.1–18.5 versus 64.5%, 99% CI 56.1–72.1); but habitual consumption in a solitary setting was not significantly different between regions (11.6%, 99% CI 7.6%–17.4% versus 18.2%, 99% CI 8.9%–33.6%). The self-reported, quantitative information about individual khat chewing in the week before the interview follows the same trend (see Table 4): khat chewing respondents reported that they consumed on average 9.8 “bundles” (SE = 2.1, 99% CI 2.0–17.5) and had 1.7 sleepless nights due to chewing khat in the previous week (SE = 0.4, 99% CI 0.1–3.3). Again, the differences in the reported number of sleepless nights due to khat use in the previous week between northern and southern/central Somalia were evident (0.7, 99% CI 0.6–0.9 versus 2.4, 99% CI 1.8–3.0) but not significant with respect to the consumed quantity (5.7, 99% CI 4.7–6.6 versus 12.7, 99% CI 4.9–20.6). On a regional level, we found the largest consumed quantities (expressed in bundles) in the samples in Mogadishu South (including Lower Shabelle and the “Km 50 Airport,” where many khat-delivering planes land daily: 15.9, 99% CI 14.4–17.5) and in Kismayo (including Lower and Middle Juba; 20.8, 99% CI 18.0–23.6), the two regions closest to the Kenyan border, from where the largest quantity of khat imports arrive. Figure 1 displays graphically the differences between the north and central/southern Somalia.

@Foreman That doesn't tell us how much they spend on khat annually. Were's
Somaliland khat imports figures are in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

"The present study provides information about drug abuse among active security personnel and militia with an emphasis on regional differences in relation to the lack of central governmental control—to our knowledge the first account on this topic."

man do you even know the studies you are citing :mjlol:

kkkkk I didn't even see that. So he is citing khat use among moryaan militia that is a common thing but the average southerner doesn't
eat khat much.

No, your agenda is well known. I think Somalilanders can think for themselves. They will vote for their interests.

Unfortunately, the people of Waqooyi Galbeed have not been able to do that for 26 years. This is because of "Muh Qabiil Syndrome. These people need to realise that Somaliland can never exist as a sovereign nation. That is a fact. I don't blame them for this though. I blame the corrupt and villainous politicians that have been infecting these people for decades. They must be alleviated from this sickness and return to unity because that is the only way to bring prosperity to Somalia.
 
@Foreman why did you pass that off as a relevant study

Because it is :umwhat:



Second, according to the perception of participants, the
percentage of khat users among armed personnel of southern
Somalia equals that of the northern part. This observation is
in contrast to the last epidemiological study on khat use [40],
which found higher levels in the north, but which studied
only the general population. Based on the assumption that
this result was indicative of the overall prevalence of khat use,
we speculate that khat use among vulnerable groups such as
militia, and probably also among the general population, has
dramatically increased in southern Somalia during the course
of the civil war.

speculate = form a theory or conjecture about a subject without firm evidence.
assumption = a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof.

It isnt. you got caught out according to their own words is SPECULATION however their previous study says among general population it is higher in the north. Please bring us that study too

Yes it is a good indicator of the khat consumption among general population, the study your asking for is 30+ years old

The only quantitative study concerned with Khat consumption in Somalia? You can't get more relevant than that.
I just saw this wtf are you on about, it's a completely different topic it's about armed groups and militias and it's speculative as stated dont come here with your bullshit the funniest part is that you put the link under the quote and probably thought no one would click it :draketf:
