Though the cocaine epidemic has slowed since the 1980's, many people still struggle with cocaine and crack addictions. Cocaine is most commonly snorted (inhaled) in "lines", but users can also inject or smoke it. Crack is most commonly smoked, using a crack pipe or by freebasing. Cocaine is a stimulant and an anesthetic. It was traditionally used in dental practices because of its ability to numb the mouth for short periods of time. Cocaine bought on the street may not always be pure and runs the risk of being laced with mystery substances like baking soda.

Cocaine (benzoylmethylecgonine) is a stimulant drug produced from the coca plant, most commonly available in fine white powder or crushable clumps, called "rocks". It is very addictive and extremely dangerous in high doses.


Cocaine Abuse

Though cocaine is commonly abused on the streets and for recreational purposes, it affects each person differently and some individuals may have higher tolerances than others.

Yes, you can overdose on cocaine. If your injecting it straight into your bloodstream, an amount as little as 25mg may cause an overdose. If your snorting it, anywhere from 500mg to 1.5g of cocaine can potentially cause an overdose... your blood pressure spikes, your heart may stop, you may die.
