Had to Wiki that, but seem to recall a long time ago now that you mention...

"Use of stimulants in formula

An early Coca-Cola advertisement.
When launched, Coca-Cola's two key ingredients were cocaine and caffeine. The cocaine was derived from the coca leaf and the caffeine from kola nut, leading to the name Coca-Cola (the "K" in Kola was replaced with a "C" for marketing purposes).[62][63]

Coca cocaine
Pemberton called for five ounces of coca leaf per gallon of syrup (roughly 37 g/L), a significant dose; in 1891, Candler claimed his formula (altered extensively from Pemberton's original) contained only a tenth of this amount. Coca-Cola once contained an estimated nine milligrams of cocaine per glass. (For comparison, a typical dose or "line" of cocaine is 5075 mg.[64]) In 1903, it was removed.[65]

After 1904, instead of using fresh leaves, Coca-Cola started using "spent" leaves the leftovers of the cocaine-extraction process with trace levels of cocaine.[66] Since then, Coca-Cola uses a cocaine-free coca leaf extract prepared at a Stepan Company plant in Maywood, New Jersey."[67]

I do recall that Coke a Cola failed the Poisons Act when introduced into the UK some time in the past.

This is all very interesting as in the past years here companies have been pushing all types of hemp products including clothing and the use of cannabis oil even in facial and body lines.
Canola oil much the same. Touted as safe, cheap and effective until I found out that it's a manufactured plant, Rapeseed mustard or cabbage family and claims of it being toxic and leading to all kinds of medical conditions. It's been put into more and more food and personal products here.
