(ABC 6 News) – A Minnesota man is being held in Worth County Jail for possession of a flowering plant native to the Horn of Africa.

The North Central Iowa Narcotics Task Force arrested 38-year-old Dayax Abdi Ahmed of Apple Valley for possession of Khat.  Authorities say users typically chew the drug to produce a euphoric and manic-like high, similar to amphetamine.

Ahmed allegedly had multiple pounds of Khat on him, estimated at a street value of $8,000.  He’s been charged with two felony counts:  possession of Khat with intent to deliver and failure to affix a drug stamp.
