Virginia Quarterly Review | Coca Sí, Cocaína No
Bolivian President Evo Morales won office in 2006 with the support of the nation's coca growers. He's supporting those cocaleros with his "Coca Sí, Cocaína No" program, allowing coca to be produced and marketed legally, while barring production of cocaine. This is a difficult line for Morales to walk, as he tries to satisfy both his citizens and the international community.
