    It just doesn't get a bad wrap as a drug because it isn't counter-productive.
    It is addictive and stimulating, but I don't see it as an actual drug. Because it is those two things does not automatically make it a drug. Take for example, Sex: It is stimulating and can be addictive, but you wouldn't consider it a drug, would you?

    Coffee isn't a drug. The caffeine in it is.

    Sex is not a chemical that you consume.You can not overdose on sex. Sex is not actually physically addictive.

    Trust me on this, I've been to several drug and alcohol education courses and I've researched various drugs as a hobby.

    It is a well known fact that it is a drug, it is scientifically classified as a drug.

    You seriously don't think its a drug?

    Excuse the sources:

    If you want to get into semantics, I will conceed that there are non-caffeinated options for coffee (although it is non-standard) and that it contains, rather than is a drug per se.

    EDIT:

    Surely you get the point....
    Let's all say go around saying marijuana and crack aren't drugs now since those aren't the names of chemicals in them...

    .. I get the point, the point I'm making (which Kyle already posted) is that Coffee itself is not a drug, but it does contain a drug within it (Caffeine). Your first post claiming "Coffee" to be a drug, led me to believe that you thought a drug was just something that was Stimulating & Addictive.

    Ah, well I was under the impression that you didn't think caffeine was a drug since the post you quoted said caffeine not coffee.

    Anyways...
