(July 08, 2013, (CCTV Africa Live))--The British government is now set to fully implement the proposal to ban Miraa or khat, a herbal stimulant widely used by Somalis and Ethiopians, following a proposal to do so, by its Home Secretary.

CCTV's Richard Bestic now has this story of how that decision is being received by consumers in London
