I'm trying to follow up a post from last March about the availability of coca leaves. According to Argentine federal law it is legal to chew coca leaves everywhere in the country but they seem to be easily available only in the northern provinces. In Salta, Jujuy and Tucuman most kioscos sell plastic bags full of the raw leaves. I would like to try them for weight loss and hopefully depression but I'm in Bariloche and no one here knows of a local source. It seems like this would be a business opportunity for someone but nobody is meeting the need. Any suggestions?
