cocaine

The drug most associated with the party culture of the 1970s and ’80s has experienced a resurgence in recent years, especially among young men ages 18 to 25. A recent poll revealed that 1 in 40 adults in the United States admitted to having used cocaine at least once in the past year. These statistics are particularly troubling given the drug’s highly addictive chemical nature.

Cocaine blocks the brain’s neurotransmitters, such as norepinephrine, serotonin and dopamine from being reabsorbed. This chemical buildup between nerves triggers euphoric sensations to instantaneously course throughout an individual’s body. This effect is what makes cocaine so addictive – and dangerous.

Cocaine (also known as coke or blow) is responsible for more U.S. emergency room visits than any other drug, causing strokes, heart attacks, seizures and even sudden death. Quite simply, there is no such thing as “recreational” cocaine use. Anyone who uses cocaine puts their health at risk – every time.
