WHAT IS COCAINE?





  • Cocaine Hydrochloride ("coke," "blow") is a bitter, numbing, white powder derived from the leaves of the coca plant, which grows mainly in South America.

  • Coca-Cola used to contain cocaine (hence the name) and so did many other over-the-counter food and medicine products.

  • Crack cocaine is made by chemically altering cocaine hydrochloride into feebase crystals or "rocks," which are easily smoked.

HOW IS COCAINE USED? 





  • The leaves of the coca plant can be chewed or made into a tea. Coca leaves are used this way legally in many countries as a mild stimulant similar to caffeine.

  • Most often powder cocaine is snorted in small lines. The effects come on gradually and peak after about 15-30 minutes, with a total duration of about an hour.
