Who knows the cocaine leaf even though, being that thus the cocaleiros allege that for being one practical one of centuries, practical one of ancestor autctenes, would be the true essence of Bolivia, that is, of these cited symbols he would be the only one that it would have linking with the indigenista past, and that it would not have no influence of the Spanish colonizadores.
