Bolivian President Evo Morales - Expelled the DEA in 2008 + Coca Cultivation Down-2nd Straight Year

❖ Bolivian President Evo Morales “expelled the DEA in 2008 and says Bolivia is better off without U.S. counter-drug assistance.” The UN has announced that “Bolivian land under coca cultivation is down for a second straight year–and “credited Bolivian coca growers unions for the drop”.



LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) -- The United Nations says Bolivian land under coca cultivation is down for a second straight year, dropping 7 percent from 2011-2012 after a 12 percent decline the previous year.

It says Bolivia grows 17 percent of the crop that produces cocaine, with 98 square miles (25,300 hectares) under cultivation. Bolivia is No. 3 in cocaine production after Colombia and Peru.

U.N. Office of Drugs and Crime Bolivia director Antonino De Leo credited the coca growers unions for the drop as he released the figures Monday with President Evo Morales.

Morales expelled the DEA in 2008 and says Bolivia is better off without U.S. counter-drug assistance.

3. They should do Coke Vegas in Bolivia

According to a crazy cokehead I used to know: " I'm tellin' ya, if they leagalize the shit, it otta work like Las Vegas. Ta start wit', Nobody that ain't on the shit can stand ya if you're on the shit. Buy insurance on your heart like a rental car. The hotel bar is SICK, every tabletop is mirror....... 1-Hour Detox stand at the airport, can't cash your return ticket. Smoked your cash, go the fuck home....."

Hey, Trump, wanna build a place where they worship blowhards like you?
