How did Cocoa Cola get its name?!

Question: How did Cocoa Cola get its name!?
During the 18th century; the makers of cocaine put cocaine in the drink to try and get people addicted to it and it worked, they eventually took it out because it made people mad when they couldnt get it at 3am!. But it was also used for morphine addicts!.I watched a documentary on it!.

Coca Cola was NOT named after the cacoa plant that produces the beans for chocolate!.

I was named for the Coca plant that produces modern day cocaine!. Original Coca Cola had a trace amounts of cocaine in it, that gave its drinkers a lift!. Coke adds life! The coca plant also has a distinct flavor!.

When cocaine was prohibited in the early 1900's, it was replaced with caffeine to replicate the "lift"!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Carbonated water was teamed with the new syrup to produce a drink that was at once "Delicious and Refreshing," a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca-Cola is enjoyed!.

Thinking that "the two Cs would look well in advertising," Dr!. Pemberton's partner and bookkeeper, Frank M!. Robinson, suggested the name and penned the now famous trademark "Coca-Cola" in his unique script!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

It was originally made from the male Akola bird which was boiled for several days before being strained through the used loin cloths of the mow-mow indians!.
