Is it true Coca-Cola has cocaine in their drinks?

Or Is it just myth that Coca-Cola has that in their ingredients? Does Coca-Cola still have it in their drinks?

  • in the past they did but they changed it up with caffeine because apparently it has a similar effect but less powerful.

  • it had it back in the day. now the ingredients go through a different process so there are no traces of cocaine or anything of the sort

    • So it was true that they had it in their drinks back in the old days

    • So it wasn't a myth and a rumor?

    • yeah, you can look it up. there were traces. not like they purposely dumped cocaine in there to get high, but back in the day they used cocaine for a lot of recreational purposes

  • Cocaine and the coca leaves aren't the exact same thing. And they don't even use the leaves anymore.

  • Not any more. They don't have Cola nuts in them either- both ingredients got replaced with cheaper, artificial industrial substitutes to boost profit margins a long time ago.
