A discreet chemical plant in Maywood, New Jersey has a special license to import coca leaves on behalf of Coca-Cola.
The Maywood chemical plant is managed by Stepan Company and is the only company to have a license from the DEA to import coca leaves which is the plant used to make cocaine.
The New York Post reported the imported coca leaves are “decocainized” and later put in Coca-Cola as an ingredient.
So, you don’t have to worry about failing a drug test after drinking a coke!
All the left over byproduct, however, which has a value of close to $2 billion, is then sold to an opioid manufacturing company called Mallinckrodt .
Coca-Cola produces as much as $2BN of pure COCAINE every year in a secretive New Jersey factory – all thanks to its iconic recipe and a VERY special arrangement with the DEA

Per The Daily Mail
A small chemical processing plant hidden in a quiet neighborhood of New Jersey has an exclusive license to import coca leaves into the US on behalf of The Coca-Cola Company and manufactures as much as $2 billion of pure cocaine every year.
The leaves are used to produce a ‘decocainized’ ingredient for the iconic soda and the cocaine byproduct is sold to the nation’s largest opioid manufacturer, which markets the powder as a numbing agent and topical anesthetic for dentists.
It operates under special licenses issued to it by the DEA and is the only company in the US permitted to import coca leaves and manufacture cocaine.
As some of you already know the original formula of Coca-Cola created by Dr. John Pemberton contained pure cocaine.
U.S. pharmacist John S. Pemberton invented Coca-Cola in 1886.
His first Coca-Cola contained cocaine about 9mgs per glass, which was removed from the drink in 1903.
Eventually sold his business for $2,300 in 1888, just before he died. #BoxingDay #ODPPExposed Esther Uhuru park pic.twitter.com/jlSHGv101z

The cocaine was removed from the formula in 1903 after it was discovered how to extract the flavor of the coca leaves without using cocaine.
