    It does have coca in it. A friend of mine really loves the stuff and gave me a few cans to try. It clearly lists in the ingredients "coca leaves". I was wondering how long it was going to take until someone freaked out about it.

    Uhhhhh Coca Cola is made from coca leaves. Big deal. I bet if you tested Coke it would have "traces" too.

    Coca cola is not made from coca leaves, at least not anymore. They stopped adding coca completely in 1929. It does, however, get it`s name from coca.

    Cocaine can`t be ingested through epithelial tissue that lines the gut, there for it would have no effect, also who the drat could get high off 0.4 micrograms, its impossible, you would need to drink hundreds of them. The fact that the drink will be produced efficiently as possible red bull would not waste time or money in getting cocaine into there drinks, maybe a little fell off one of the workers jacket from the night before.
    I rest my case

    "Cocaine can`t be ingested through epithelial tissue that lines the gut, there for it would have no effect"

    Yes, cocaine can be ingested orally to induce a high, but .4 micrograms couldn`t even get a toddler high, especially since it`s .4 micrograms per liter, not even per can. I`d be more worried about the copious amounts of sugar and caffeine.

    Slugs: we are both wrong.

    "To this day, Coca-Cola uses as an ingredient a cocaine-free coca leaf extract prepared at a Stepan Company plant in Maywood, New Jersey."

    0.4 Micrograms = 0.0000004 grams.

    Not a whole lot... but still, it makes sense. XP
