In the world of recreational drug use today, cocaine is one the staples. People of all classes and all societies use this drug in one form another. It’s notorious for being abused by Hollywood stars, such as Lindsay Lohan and Robert Downy Jr.
Cocaine can be taken in any number of ways: it can be igested, snorted, injected, used as a suppository, and so on. Depending on how one takes, the degree of intensity varies. And despite being one of the few substances that is for the most part universally illegal in developed countries throughout the world, cocaine is still one of the more readily available. The estimated current consumption of cocaine in the world is 600 metric tons a year, with the US consuming around 300 of those metric tons, around 50%.
Cocaine Effects and Addiction
Cocaine lasts the shortest amount of time in the body of the more addictive substances on the market. Depending on its level of purity and how it’s ingested, the euphoric effect can last as little as two minutes and as long as couple of hours. This makes it no less addictive.
Due to the shorter euphoric period of cocaine the withdrawal effects kick in faster and for that reason addicts consume it at higher rates. Now, cocaine isn’t as hard on the body as other substances – meth, for example – per a milligram of ingestion, but addicts consume it higher quantities than other drugs making it in the end just as damaging to the body. It’s very easy to grow an addiction to cocaine too, which is why it’s considered one of the more dangerous substances around.
