    other than coca, and reward them for doing so to the degree that they can no longer afford what was a staple of their diet. This is a confusing issue because the same farmers that can no longer afford to pay for the quinoa can send their children to college.

    It has me scratching my head trying to figure out if providing a market for this agricultural product is better or worse than providing a market for the coca.

    Of course, I have never had quinoa although I do enjoy the occasional asparagus spear.
