Cocaine is an illicit psychostimulant powder drug that’s usually snorted in various settings. An alkaloid powder that comes from the South American coca leaf, it’s processed through a variety of chemical reactions to produce the white powder we know of as cocaine. The current theory about how cocaine developed in the plant was a way to eliminate pests if they tried to eat the leaves or other parts of the plant.
As a stimulant, the drug makes you hyperactive, euphoric, and somewhat paranoid. As a vasoconstrictor, cocaine causes high blood pressure and can trigger seizures or strokes. Most users of coke will go on coke binges when snorting cocaine due to the high amount of tolerance you can build in a short amount of time when using the drug. For this reason, coke becomes increasingly dangerous to use the longer a binge goes on.
Since the 80s and 90s, the use of cocaine has fallen as methamphetamine and ecstasy demand has replaced a lot of the demand for cocaine supply. Crack cocaine is a big part of the modern supply of American coke, as it’s far cheaper but less pure—easier to make and sell on the streets. Crack is named for the sound it makes when heated in a crack pipe. Smoking cocaine in any form is the fastest and most effective way to achieve a euphoric high. Using cocaine and alcohol at the same time can create an even more toxic compound called cocaethylene, which is metabolized in the body instead of benzoylecgonine.
In the state of Ohio, 1.88% of those above the age of 18 have done cocaine at least once in the last year. In the 18-25 year old statistical group, 4.89% have done cocaine in the last year–the highest-using group in the state.
