Zac Efron

Big Smiles in

Coke Capital of the World

Zac Efron chose an interesting place to escape this month ... jetting off to the mountainous cocaine capital of the world ... but he wasn't there for the skiing.

The above photos were snapped on September 11th in Peru, showing Efron smiling with fans. Sources tell TMZ, Zac flew to the South American country for some mountain climbing, as well as to see the ancient Inca ruins of Machu Picchu.

He was also mobbed by screaming girls a week later at an airport in Cuzco, not far from Machu Picchu.



We're not saying he did or did not partake of the local crop while he was there, but it's still ironic.

TMZ broke the story ... Efron entered rehab twice this year for a serious cocaine problem, most recently in April.

Fun fact: according to the White House drug czar (yeah, we got one of those) Peru overtook Colombia as the world's biggest cocaine exporter in 2011. Now that's what we call winning.

For notes like this TMZ post is that people hate americans and try to kill them not only in the wars that they enter but also in their very homeland.

Thousands of innocents die because of the thinking of stupid people like the ones in TMZ. I know not all of them are stupids, but, as TMZ does, I want to generalize.

You say which are the countries that are the major exporters of drugs, but don’t forget which are the countries that are the major consumers of drugs in the world

I am writing to indicate a few things:
1. Coca is a plant in the Andean cultures is used for medicinal purposes. The coca leaf is used as a natural analgesic, has benefits to the digestive system, rheumatologic, cardiovascular and nervous systems.
2. Do not confuse the words 'coca' and 'cocaine'. The coca leaf is not a drug, but it can be turned into cocaine, after a process that mixes plant leaf with other substances.

You say which are the countries that are the major exporters of drugs, but don’t forget which are the countries that are the major consumers of drugs in the world

This headline makes me ill. This guy went to Cusco which is such an spiritual place, were you really feel the energy into you. It is true that Peru is one of the main producers of cocaine (which is different from coca leaves), but cocaine is produced in the Peruvian jungle, not in the highlands like Cusco. He obviously wanted to have a spiritual trip and TMZ makes a dirty news of it!

Thought cocaine capitals were where it is actually consumed, not produced. Maybe Los Angeles is the world's cocaine capital?
