Coca and the Gym

So I have no idea if I broke the law this morning, but since I only had one packet (a gift from a friend), I thought I'd share my Mate de Coca story (according the the package, “el mate de coca ejerce una acción estimulante, ayuda a combatir la fatiga y el stress” — that can't hurt, since I have plenty of fatigue and stress). Anyway, it's coca leaf, so I guess it's cocaine tea, but it's not something you can get high from at least in low quantity.

I made the tea and mixed it in with my lemonade (I drink tons of honey lemonade). I didn't really think about it, but I had a spare moment so I thought I might as well look it up. Apparently it's a muscle relaxant (so it's used as a digestive aid)!!! I'm also not too thrilled that (like poppy seeds) it can make me show a false positive on a drug test… Anyway, when I showed up at the gym I wasn't sure how it would go but I actually felt like I had more energy than usual…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
