Coca Si, Cocaína No

PUBLISHED: May 12, 2008

Bolivian President Evo Morales won office three years ago with the support of the nation’s coca growers. He’s supporting those cocaleros with his “Coca Si, 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, but he does it to satisfy both his citizens and the international community.

Roberto Guerra and Ruxandra Guidi’s reporting on coca in Bolivia was made possible by a grant from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting in Washington, D.C.
