Cocaine: Coca vs. Cocoa?

And now for something completely different;  Cocaine!

	I don't work in this area, so I figured a note to the net would be the
easiest way to get an easy answer on this question raised by  recent
discussions with a friend who is begrudgingly recovering from cocaine 
adiction.

What species is cocaine made from and what is the relationship of this plant
to the plant that chocolate is made from?

A related question, but one that does not really pertain to this newsgroup,
does anyone have a breif list of adverse medical side effects of cocaine?
I would prefer physical symptoms, not emotional.

Thanks in advance
