    @ Itsalwysunny: If you still have REAL black beauties in your house, they`re probably close to 30 years old, and lord knows WHAT chemical compound they have decomposed into.

    If they`re something that was purchased in the last 15 years or so, then it`s nothing more than ephedrine, which has been proven to cause heart problems and actually killed people.

    Either way, if you sell that crap to somebody, that would be a new standard in douchebag behavior.

    Just flush `em down the toilet and be done with it.

    The second one is no big deal. Coca Wine is simply wine made with Cocoa leaves just like cocoa tea and the original Coca-Cola and it has no narcotic effects whatsoever just like cocoa tea and original Coca-Cola. It doesn`t mean it has cocaine in it.

    A common misconception is that Coca-Cola was once made with cocaine. That`s not true at all. It was made with cocoa leaves, and without the heavy processing that goes into making cocaine, cocoa leaves alone do not have narcotic features. No part of the cocoa plant is considered a narcotic. That`s why we don`t get high when we eat chocolate.

    I wouldn`t laugh. All those "legal" drugs that are pushed onto us today are no better than any of these "medicines". Times haven`t changed at all. Just new dangerous drugs. Just listen to the side effects on the commercials! We`re so stupid we take them anyway! In the past, at least they had an excuse!

    wrong the leaves do have a narcotic agent that`s why many cultures that are based at high altitudes chew on the leaves to help altitude sickness

    Cocaine is still used in hospitals to, somewhat ironically, stop nose bleeds. All the couch remedies worked because the drugs used are repiratory suppressants which would in short stop bronchospasms, but may also stop breathing all together. My mother-inlaw has a bottle of old heroin pills in her kitchen. they`re antique!

    Gerty, while you are quite right that all drugs contain potential dangers, the truth is that drugs are given when the positive benefit outweighs the negative of taking the drug. Side effects are potential and not necessarily going to happen, and for the majority of people don`t. SO you`re extremely generalized statement is misguided, and tends to dangerously lead people away from what may cause them to have relief, and in some cases save them. I`d also like to know what you`re educational backing is for you`re standpoint.

    Cocoa and coca are two completely different things. Cocoa is where chocolate comes from, and coca is where cocaine comes from.

    Sacrito, If I proof read everything I off handedly typed on the internet I`d probably have an annoying personality like you. Don`t preach grammar to me, because it`s easy to make a mistake. Just so you know kid, I have 3 university english classes under my belt and I got 100% on the last english final I wrote. But hey, if you feel superior to me because you`re capable of making corrections to an impromptu bit of script, you hold onto that. You`re gonna need it.

    Am I the only one who found this post incredibly boring? As if we didn`t know that almost all drugs of abuse began with good intentions as medicine, before the potential for abuse made them illegal.

    @ bumbleBB: calm down. I am a senior in college and still sometimes make basic grammar mistakes. I also know a lot of people who have taken more than 3 English courses and still sound like idiots. Don`t let one correction of your grammar ruin your day.

    Hmmm... I suggest that perhaps trying to sell someone 30 year old pills is probably not a wise course of action and I`M a douchebag?

    Itsalwysunny: I laugh in your face, tough guy. If calling you out on what would TRULY be a douchebag move if you were to actually do it makes me "high and mighty", so be it.

    Why am I not surprised you`re an insurance salesman? That would explain why you usually come across as such a jackass in most of your comments.

    That is absolutely wrong. The coca plant does indeed have narcotic attributes. When a coca leaf is chewed it numbs the mouth and gives a fairly pleasurable feeling.

    Cacao leaves on the other hand are what chocolate is derived from.

    i remember getting some super strong cough medicine from my doctor when I was little. And I swear my mom used to say it had just a little bit of cocaine in it, and that I should never take too much. Well.. short story shorter, I ended up having a horrible "cough" every couple of hours and needed more medicine.

    I went to a historical event here in our city and they actually had these "medicines" on display. Quite interesting what they used in the past. This is another reason I just adore history. Also, yes - Perfection is correct. Coca Cola was made with coca leaves and they got away with it for years. Their sales were through the roof!
