    What Year Did They Stop Putting Cocaine In Coke?

    Answer: 1903

    Coca-Cola did once contain an estimated nine milligrams of cocaine per glass but after 1903 Coca-Cola started using, instead of fresh leaves, "spent" leaves - the leftovers of the cocaine-extraction process with cocaine trace levels left over at a molecular level. However, as cocaine is one of numerous alkaloids present in the coca leaf, it was nevertheless present in the drink. Today, the flavoring is still done with kola nuts and the "spent" coca leaf. In the United States, there is only one plant in New Jersey authorized by the Federal Government to grow the coca plant for Coca-Cola syrup manufacture.


    That's What's up.

    I've always wished I could try Mariani's Coca Wine. Red wine and coca extract. THAT would have been one tangy beverage.


    And perfect for hangover Sundays!

    It's cool that Pepsi is doing the throwbacks with the real sugar and all but I just hope that Coke does a throwback with real cocaine. Then we will really be partying!
