Bolivia withdrew from the UN Convention on Narcotic Drugs last year in protest over the coca leaf being labeled an illegal drug. While the leaf is the raw ingredient for cocaine, chewing coca leaves is a centuries' old tradition in Bolivia. AFP PHOTO/JORGE BERNAL (Photo credit should read JORGE BERNAL/AFP/Getty Images)
