Cocaine By: Madison Julian

Cocaine is made from the coca plant found in South America. If used properly by doctors, it can be very helpful for some medical purposes. However, it is normally used for very different and very wrong reasons. People usually snort cocaine through their nose or they rub it on their gums. Other people will take the powder and dissolve it in water or inject it into their bloodstream, which is called a "Speedball". People also smoke cocaine. When people are taking cocaine, they usually do it in binge times, they take a lot of it at once in a short amount of time. As they become use to a certain dosage, they usually increase the dosage.

Emotional consequences: A first, cocaine can make you feel confident and joyful. But, as time goes on, a person who is taking cocaine will begin to have strong cravings, anxiety, paranoia, and begin having panic attacks. Physical consequences: slurred speech, dizziness, tight chest, bloody nose, convulsions, delusions, confusion, nausea, etc. Mental consequences: problem solving and memory problems.
The effects of cocaine can be dramatic and dangerous.
