I saw this rather interesting video the other day about how they make cocaine.
I found it fascinating that so much Coca was required to produce quite a small amount of cocaine, and all the chemicals that were used.
However, it left me wondering, “how did they come up with this process, and who was the first person to think of sniffing it?”
Thanks to everyone’s friend google. I was able to determine that cocaine was actually originally considered a medicine and generally beneficial, hence it’s inclusion in Coca Cola.
It was only over time that it’s addictiveness and other dangers became clear, and that other methods of consuming it, and more refined versions were developed.
