Coca leaves have been consumed for thousands of years

Used as an appetite suppressant, as an energizer or as a medicine in South America, coca leaves are not just for making cocaine.

    This is a great example as to why banning drugs is a bad thing.

    We got to your Peru, all the hotel. Hostels. etc had coca leaves on table for you to chew. The insist you chew them because of the height of most places.

    Pero la coca tiene que ser de los Yungas, coca del Chapare grande , picante y fea no sirve para mascar, a ningún boliviano le gusta la coca del Chapare.

    Oye! And its the ABUSE of even traditional herbal meds in the "civilized" regions that is at the root of the prob. Stop the demand & no need for illegal supplies. If the demand is a sickness in the civilized regions, the sickness should be cured instead.

    They also are used to balance yourself from the altitude. Some people can have adverse reactions as they are not used to the altitude. They also consume these leaves as tea

    The good old UN - what a bunch of pussies - leave people alone. Maybe come down hard on the drug lords who put their money in the beloved Swiss banks - maybe the UN should look at that...........
