Yes indeedy....hence the 'Coca' part of Coca-Cola being an abbreviation of Cocaine. ;)



Did you know that many inhabitants (approximately 67 families) in the town of Quincy, Florida, became millionaires overnight after a local banker persuaded everyone to buy shares in a new beverage called Coca-Cola?  During the depression, Quincy became the richest town per capita in the whole of America.
