    Wrong! http://read.bi/1OynzIO
    In fact, the United States (and most other nations) expressly prohibits the sale and trade of coca leaves. In order for Coca-Cola to continue to exist in its current form, the company has a special arrangement with the Drug Enforcement Administration, allowing it to import dried coca leaves from Peru (and to a lesser degree, from Bolivia) in huge quantities.

    The dried coca leaves make their way to a processing plant in Maywood, New Jersey, operated by the Stepan Corporation, a publicly traded chemicals company. The Stepan factory imports roughly 100 metric tons of the leaves each year, stripping the active ingredient—the cocaine—from them. The cocaine-free leaves are then shipped off to Coke to turn into syrup, and, ultimately, soda.

    Or maybe you are not wrong? No body knows for sure. Coca-Cola was originally one of hundreds of coca-based drinks that claimed medicinal properties and benefits to health; early marketing claimed that Coca-Cola alleviated headaches and acted as a "brain and nerve tonic." Coca leaves were used in Coca-Cola's preparation and the small amount of cocaine present in the product gave the drinker a "buzz." In 1903 Coca-Cola removed cocaine from the formula, substituting caffeine as the stimulating ingredient, while dropping all the product's medicinal claims.The coca plant remains part of the formula; it is believed that coca leaves are imported from Peru, then treated by US chemical company Stepan, which then sells the de-cocainized residue to Coca-Cola.The Coca-Cola Company declines to comment upon whether or not Coca-Cola contains spent coca leaves, deferring to the secret nature of the formula. http://bit.ly/1HxZOkA

  • Has Square's Future Already Been Determined?  [View article]
    PayPal and Square has similar products with the card readers, one big difference is that a merchant can us PayPal on his website. Both charge similar rates to the merchant. IMHO Square is a great product that has a very limited market at this time unless they make some big changes. That makes it a risky bet for my money.

  • Upside seen for Darden Restaurants  [View news story]
    Darden Restaurants Inc.'s board has approved a planned spinoff of some of its real estate, clearing the way for the new company's shares to be distributed Nov. 9.
    The owner of the Olive Garden and LongHorn Steakhouse restaurants, which had been under pressure by activist investor Starboard Value LP, is still awaiting a ruling from the Internal Revenue Service as to whether the spinoff would qualify as tax-free.

    If successful, Darden shareholders would receive a share in Four Corners Property Trust Inc. for every three of their Darden shares, with shareholders to receive cash for fractional shares. The real estate trust would trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol FCPT.

  • BP - The Valuation Of This 7% Yielder Is Now Officially 'Stupid'  [View article]
    Thanks for the article, I believe oil will rebound. Just when is anyone guess. I am looking to buy if the price drops more, and it will drop more. As I said oil will bounce back, may be next year or later. 6.7% Yield does not hurt, if they can maintain that dividend.

    We are going have to agree to disagree about how healthy orange juice is. You do know you can not believe everything you read on the internet! Oh never mind that is right, I really am a French model. Noticed that there is about as many site on the net about how healthy it is, as there is about how unhealthy it is. Here is a link to a few about how healthy it is. http://wb.md/1CML134 http://bit.ly/1CMKZbn
