Coca was revered by the Inca above all other plants and has been in constant use among
Andean peoples for over 4000 years. It is non-toxic, non-addictive, and chock full of vitamins
and other nutrients. It’s also gentler yet more effective than coffee. In fact, as Wade Davis puts
it, comparing coca to cocaine is like comparing potatoes to vodka.
So why is this remarkable, safe plant illegal? Tragically on multiple levels, coca got caught up in
the drug wars against cocaine that have been so devastating and murderous. It is now past time
for a dramatic reappraisal. The benefits of societal and legal recognition of coca would be
numerous. And who better to take on the reappraising and rehonoring task than Wade Davis
and Dana Larsen?
Legendary anthropologist and Order of Canada recipient Wade Davis has deep first-hand knowledge with coca going back half a century. Dana Larsen might just be the most visionary and bold advocate, innovator and entrepreneur in the plant medicine field you will ever encounter.
You’re bound to be inspired by the knowledge, insight, passion, and eloquence of these two great spokespeople. Hopefully you’ll also be inspired to participate in helping bring coca into its rightful place as an honored and effective plant ally.
Please join us for this rare FREE event on Thursday April 29 from 4 to 6 pm PDT.
Wade and Dana will each speak for 20 to 30 minutes. That will be followed by a moderated discussion with the two of them. In the third and final segment of the webinar, viewers will be able to ask questions directly to Wade and Dana onscreen or via the chat room.
Bonus: At the end of the program, Dana will announce a code for viewers to receive a 10% discount on select products at his Coca Leaf Café in downtown Vancouver.
