What is Cocaine?
There are two forms of cocaine: a powdered form that an addict snorts, and crack-cocaine which an addict smokes. It is a highly addictive recreational drug that is either a white crystalline powder or an off-white chunky substance. It is snorted (inhaled through the nose), smoked and injected into the bloodstream. The drug greatly affects the nervous system by increasing the dopamine level that stimulates key pleasure centres in the brain and leads to extremely heightened euphoria. Tolerance to cocaine develops soon and the addict gradually increases the dose to get a similar high.
