For over a thousand years South American indigenous peoples have chewed the leaves of Erythroxylon coca, a plant that contains vital nutrients as well as numerous alkaloids, including cocaine. The coca leaf was, and still is, chewed almost universally by some indigenous communities. Today, in many countries, cocaine is a popular recreational drug. In the United States, cocaine use is prevalent across all socioeconomic strata, including age, demographics, economic, social, political, religious, and livelihoods. It was reported in October 2010 that the use of cocaine in Australia has doubled since monitoring began in 2003.
