Is this true?

is it true that way back in the day (like maybe when it first came out) the coca cola company had cocaine as one of the ingredients. Supposedly 3% or something like that

This was back in the day before it was known how harmful cocaine is. Also used to be that mercury was used as a medication and the use of opiates was more acceptable than today. Also used to be that cigarettes were advertised as healthy, using doctors as spokesmen in the ads. We know better about lots of things these days.

They had an ingredient that was from the same (poppy) plant but did not have properties that made people high.
