While it is pretty much general knowledge that Coca Cola put coc aine in their beverage at the beginning, it is little known that Coca Cola is
the only U.S. corporation who can legally import coca leaves into the U.S. to this day.
Coca-Cola is the only U.S. corporation that has been granted the right to legally import coca leaves into the United States, via a coca processing
lab known as the Stepan Company). In 1922, the Jones-Miller Act banned coc aine imports into the United States, but Coca-Cola (and its lab) was
granted an exception. This exception remained a secret until the late 1980's when the New York Times seemed shocked to discover the truth.
You may be wondering how much they actually import, especially since we have a war on drugs.
Approximately 100 metric tons of coca leaves are imported to the Stepan Company each year (en.wikipedia.org...) under
"special permission" from the DEA. Keep all this in mind when you consider the total fraud of the current "War on Drugs" and how young African
American men are given ten-year prison sentences for pot possession while one of the largest corporations in America is actually importing leaves that
are used to manufacture coc aine.
So what do they do with all of these coca leaves since we know coc aine doesn't go into the product anymore? Glad you asked.
This brings up an obvious question: Where does all the white powder coc aine go if not to Coca-Cola? It turns out that this coc aine is
sold to a St. Louis company called Mallinckrodt Incorporated. Mallinckrodt receives not only all the coc aine from the Coca-Cola imports, but
also imports opium from India (en.wikipedia.org...). In addition, this company also buys THC extracted from marijuana grown in
the United States. So much for the War on Drugs, huh? It turns out if you buddy up to the DEA and federal regulators, you can make all the
coc aine you want while buying opium and marijuana by the ton -- as long as you're a powerful corporation with ties to Coca-Cola and other

The war on drugs is obviously a sick joke, and it needs to be ended. Corporations are running this country and getting filthy rich in the process from
the so called "war". 100 tons of coca leaves make 333 kilos of coc aine, which is A LOT of money.
P.S. According to Wiki Answers, 333,000 grams of coc aine is worth roughly $16.7 million on the street (at $50 a gram).
