Cocaine is a stimulant that people use to get high.
Users abuse cocaine to feel “good” and to get high, but this comes at a cost. The cost is often fatal to the user’s health. Whether pure or crack cocaine, it is a very dangerous thing to dabble into hard drug use. Made from coca leaves, cocaine is often snorted, injected or inhaled. The user experiences a temporal high but when the effects wear off, the user experiences a depression that compels him to try another dose.
Some health complications associated with cocaine use include physical agitation, high blood pressure, stroke, cardiac arrest, blood infection, numbness and erratic behavior among others. According to stats, over 41,000 people die worldly annually from cocaine overdose or drug related complications.
