Learn about Cocaine

Cocaine (COC) is derived from the coca leaves of the coca plant. It is most common in two forms, powder and solid blocks or crystals. In the solid block or crystal form, it is called Crack Cocaine. This term comes from the crackling sound made when a mixture of the “cheaper cocaine” is heated, so it can be smoked. Crack is a more potent form of cocaine, between 75% and 100% pure.

Crack Cocaine

 

Crack Cocaine reaches the brain faster, but the “high” lasts for a shorter period of time. It is more addictive than cocaine and carries even higher risks. Crack is more available to teens because of the low price.

On the street the coca derivation is diluted with cornstarch, talcum powder, or sugar and other drugs are added such as procaine and amphetamines. Some users combine heroin and cocaine to create a “speed ball.”

 

 

What does it look like and how is it taken?

Cocaine and crack cocaine can come in powder, crystal or brick form. Cocaine is mainly snorted, but it can also be injected. It is more of a snowy white color whereas crack is usually more yellow or rose-colored. Crack cocaine is normally smoked.

Is it Illegal or Legal?

Cocaine is illegal except when administered by a doctor for medical reasons. For example, it can be used as a local anesthetic, numbing the area for some eye, throat and nose surgeries. Possession of cocaine by any individual other than a medical professional is illegal.

Cocaine causes feelings of euphoria by interfering with brain receptors that are linked to feelings of reward. In small doses, it can make the user feel more alert, energetic and talkative. It also may temporarily suppress need for food or sleep. It is highly addictive, and the more the user takes, the more they need it for the “high.”

Dangers and side effects

Use of cocaine is never safe, except when administered by a doctor for medical purposes. Any other use of the drug can lead to absorption of toxic amounts and cause Cardiovascular (heart and blood vessels) or Cerebrovascular (brain) emergencies. Either type of emergency can result in seizures and can cause death. Most deaths related to cocaine use are due to cardiac arrest or seizures followed by respiratory arrest. In rare instances, first time use of the drug can cause sudden death.
