A cocaine molecule is C17 H21 NO4, when written in a less cryptic form, that makes cocaine | C17 H21 N1 O4 at the molecular level. In comparison, a single caffeine molecule is C8 H10 N4 O2. The 96.5% similarity between caffeine and cocaine is relatively well hidden in plain sight. That is until you look at the molecular composition of two caffeine molecules is | C16 H20 N8 O4 (caffeine multiplied by 2).
Exhaled air is about 4.0% CO2, and 18% O2 with normal breathing the 78% N2 remains unchanged between inhaling and exhaling. With the air we breath being about 78% nitrogen (N2), that small change in the amount of N2 exhaled would (and or does) go completely unnoticed.
At this point the very close similarity (95.83%) between caffeine and cocaine becomes scarily clear.
For the people that consume large Amounts of coffee, or to many energy drinks. That morning headache you get before your morning coffee or energy drink helps it go away, is a form of physical addiction to caffeine.

By 1903 due to a wave of anti-narcotics legislations, [then-manager of Coca-Cola Asa Griggs] replaced the cocaine in coca cola with caffeine.
Caffeine is in coffee, black tea, green tea, oolong tea (wu-yi tea) most 'energy' drinks, colas, and many sodas/pop. It is also hiding in "decaffeinated" coffee and tea, chocolate, chuppa-chups, guarana, and some drugs.
A 6 oz cup of:
Percolated coffee has about 120 mg of caffeine.
Black tea has about 70 mg of caffeine.
Green tea about 35 mg of caffeine.
Leading colas 45 mg of caffeine.
Mountain dew 54 mg of caffeine.
Brewed decaf has 5 mg of caffeine.
Milk chocolate has 6 mg per ounce.
Baking chocolate has 35 mg per ounce.
An estimated 149.2 million 60 kg bags of coffee were consumed worldwide in the calendar year of 2014. With a 2.3%
Average annual growth rate in global coffee consumption since 2011 (source: ICO).
With 19,694,400,000 lbs. of coffee beans consumed in 2014 some body must know how closely related to cocaine it is, and some body is making a fortune off of it.
