Coca Leaves - Source of Cocaine

Coca Leaves-Source of Cocaine

Ancient records tell us that people in South America chewed-on E.coca leaves to help them feel better.  The leaves of this plant contain a naturally occurring alkaloid called "cocaine."  That fact has caused the use of cocaine to increase geometrically, leading to disastrous consequences for many users.
