La Paz, Bolivia — A coca vendor mixes his leaves as he waits for customers at the legal coca leaf market in La Paz, Bolivia. Coca leaves are the basis for cocaine, but they also are a sacred plant among Andes natives. They have been used as a mild stimulant for centuries, and Bolivia allows limited growing of coca for traditional uses. (Photo:AP)
