Talking Cocaine is Chemically Treated Coca Leaves!!!

“Cocaine” includes coca leaves and any salt, compound, or derivative of coca leaves, and any salt, compound, isomer, derivative, or preparation which is chemically equivalent or identical to any of these substances. However, decocainized coca leaves or extraction of coca leaves that do not contain cocaine or ecgonine are not included."-Burns Ind. Code Ann. § 35-48-1-7


"(a) A person who, without a valid prescription or order of a practitioner acting in the course of the practitioner’s professional practice, knowingly or intentionally possesses cocaine (pure or adulterated) or a narcotic drug (pure or adulterated) classified in schedule I or II, commits possession of cocaine or a narcotic drug, a Level 6 felony, except as provided in subsections (b) through (d)."
-Burns Ind. Code Ann. § 35-48-4-6

The cocaine statutes is to regulate compound pharmacist. In the old days, pharmacist have cocaine leaves to prepare medicine. Also in the old days, pharmacist made medicine.

The cocaine possession is for the pharmacist. They need a prescription from the doctor to manufacture or purchase this crude product. Cocaine is a crude intermediate product that contains coca leaves and synthetic molecules that made from molecules found in the coca leaves. Cocaine is chemically treated coca leaves. Chemicals are added to the Coca leaves and the reaction results in any salt, compound, isomer, derivative, or preparation which is chemically equivalent or identical to any of these substances.


If you don't have the coca leaves but coke only, it is not cocaine. If you have coca leaves without the synthetic compound, it is not cocaine.

The ultimate user is the customer. The ultimate user is not in commerce and it never said in statute that the ultimate user needs a prescription.
