Coca is a plant of the Erythroxylaceae family native to western South America. It resembles a blackthorn brush, with its leaves having an alkaloid content that made it an important part of many native cultures in the region. Chemical processing allows for the creation of cocaine, highly concentrated alkaloids that are a highly addictive recreational drug. Fortunately for the people of the wasteland, the climate shift caused by the Great War makes it impossible to grow this plant in North American regions.[1][2]
