Shocking: Pope Francis suffers addition to cannabis-like drug ''Yerba Mate''
Shocking: Pope Francis suffers addition to cannabis-like drug ''Yerba Mate''



Pope Francis is being treated for his addiction to this drug.


[link to gawker.com]


By 1596 the consumption of mate as a beverage had become so common in Paraguay that a member of the cabildo of Asunción wrote to governor of Río de la Plata Hernando Arias de Saavedra:

"the vice and bad habit of drinking yerba has spread so much among the Spaniards, their women and children, that unlike the Indians that are content to drink it once a day they drink it continuously and those who do not drink it are very rare."

The same author of the letter went on to claim that Spanish settlers sold their clothing, weapons and horses or fell into debt to obtain yerba mate

That's funny because when I started drinking it I got hooked pretty hard on it (no history of addictions).

Quit cold turkey and went back to coffee. Called it my "warrior tea" when I was using it

I can assure you from first hand experienct they are not. Yerba Mate is just caffeine


[link to en.wikipedia.org]
Xanthines[edit]

Yerba mate contains three xanthines: caffeine, theobromine and theophylline, the main one being caffeine. Caffeine content varies between 0.7% and 1.7% of dry weight[13] (compared with 0.4 9.3% for tea leaves, 2.57.6% in guarana, and up to 3.2% for ground coffee);[14] theobromine content varies from 0.3% to 0.9%; theophylline is present in small quantities, or can be completely absent.[15] A substance previously called "mateine" is a synonym for caffeine (like theine and guaranine

Um no... not even close. It's a stimulant composed of caffeine and other compounds. So its similar to regular ole tea leaves. Google is your friend.

Why is this pinned? Yerba mate is in no way similar to cannabis in it's effects or any other way for that matter (except that it's a plant).

This is a traditional drink in my country, nothing to do with drugs.
That being said, i tried it and it was horrible, bitter or sweet its ugly both ways.
The fact that you share it with so many people disgusts me, its dirty and unhealthy.
