Ivory Coast Cocoa Farmers Taste Chocolate for the First Time

We consider chocolate a treat - an affordable and accessible reward for (hopefully) eating well most of the time. But what about the people who actually produce cocoa, the main ingredient in chocolate? A journalist visited a community in Ivory Coast that grows and picks cocoa and discovered that none of them had actually tasted chocolate before. He gave them some, and of course they loved it. 

"We complain because growing cocoa is hard work," said one man. "Now we enjoy the result. What a privilege to taste it."


Most people know that to consume alcohol and then get behind the wheel of a car is very dangerous — not just for the driver and passengers, but for anyone else sharing the road. For cannabis consumers, however, understanding levels of impairment is not so straightforward. To date, there is not yet a technology used by law enforcement that can accurately detect cannabis impairment similar to alcohol breathalyzers.

Can we see some ID please?
