An ad circa 1885 advertising cocaine as an "instantaneous cure!" for the common toothache.
"Tired? Then drink Coca Cola. It relieves exhaustion."
Coca-Cola did once contain an estimated nine milligrams of cocaine per glass, but in 1903 it was removed. To this day, Coca-Cola still contains coca flavoring.
After 1904, rather than use fresh Coca leaves, Coca-Cola started using "spent" leaves-the leftovers of the cocaine-extraction process with cocaine trace levels left over at a molecular level.
The Coca is a plant in the family Erythroxylaceae, native to the north-western regions of South America. The Coca plant plays a significant role in traditional Andean culture. Coca leaves contain cocaine alkaloids, a basis for the illegal stimulant drug cocaine.
