    I saw news on todays newspapers that Perus traditional tourist areas around Machu Piccu (correct spelling in english??) has decriminalized the growing and using of coca leaves for personal use. I have no time to translate the whole article right now, so if someone has more about it readily in english, I'd be glad to read.

    As the article indicates, its only legalized at the local level. The Peruvian national government isn't recognizing it.
