Bolivian President Evo Morales (C), accompanied by Vice-President Alvaro Garcia Linera (L) and Rural Development and Lands Minister Cesar Cocarico, promulgates a government bill increasing the legal areas of cultivation of coca, at the Quemado presidential palace in La Paz, on March 8, 2017.
Under the new law, the legal cultivation area for the country's two main coca-growing regions would be extended from 12,000 hectares to 22,000 -- capped at 14,300 hectares for the Los Yungas region and 7,700 hectares in the Chapare region, where Morales used to grow coca. / AFP PHOTO / JORGE BERNAL        (Photo credit should read JORGE BERNAL/AFP/Getty Images)
