UN Data: Andean Coca Output Increases by 3%

CNN reports a 3% growth in the cultivation of coca plants. This is the first time since the year 2000 that a production increase is reported. The figures come from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. Other findings include: a 50% reduction in coca cultivation in Colombia and higher production in Bolivia and Peru. This contradicts Washington claims denying a regional "balloon effect".
