Why not cocaine?

Bolivia's President Evo Morales has assumed the chairmanship of the Group of 77 nations and said he would use his new international platform to have coca leaf, which can be refined into cocaine, removed from the list of internationally banned drugs.

Morales also said he would use the G-77 post to promote peace and harmony with nature, and to do away with monarchies and economic hierarchies, and to promote social spending rather than the hoarding of wealth.
