I'm not an avid reader of S-F, so maybe it is already well explored idea:
Let's assume that some laboratory (lead be verY well meaning people) produces a virus destroing coca plants, and being spread by people, just as carriers. I a couple OF years all cocaine supply is gone. wht's inetresting for me would be gemeral repercissions: famine in Bolivia and Columbia among coca growers, explossion of production of opium in Afganistan, gomegrown illegal labs making syntetic substitutes, maube the end of th civilization as we know it now. I think you could explore it, have no imaginations and no writing talent.
