It is easy to sit at home and criticize someone who just says let everyone come to our country who wants to.

Diane W. Mufson: Don't let khat become the next drug scourge

Some years ago, in my effort to use the letter Q in Scrabble and Words with Friends, I was introduced to the useful word khat, which can be written qat. But this word, once a drug used only in faraway lands, is now coming to places closer to home.

Someone has made Huntington, Charleston and other Tri-State towns very major drug stops for the past several years. Look at all the fires Huntington experienced the past two years. Also drug dealers look at Marshall University's campus as a melting pot for fast money.
