Evo Morales is t3h w1n!

In a move that could well promote more awareness about uses of the coca leaf that have absolutely nothing to do with the manufacture of cocaine, President Evo Morales presented an Andean guitar inlaid with a coca leaf to Condoleeza Rice at the end of their meeting in Valparaiso, Chile.

"Morales, Bolivia's first indigenous president, came to prominence as a leader of coca farmers who want more freedom to grow coca, which is the main ingredient in cocaine but is also used legally for traditional medicines and in teas."

Hopefully, for once we won't have to rely on American ignorance to sabotage this token of good will on the part of Presidente Morales.
