cocaine is the most potent stimulant of natural origin. It is extracted from the leaves of the coca plant which grows on the mountain slopes of the Andes Mountains of South America. Illegal cocaine is usually distributed as a white crystalline powder or as an off-white chunky material. Cocaine base is converted into the powder form, which is usually cocaine hydrochloride, by diluting it with other substances. The substances most commonly used in this process are sugars, such as lactose and mannitol, and local anesthetics.

Cocaine is snorted, injected, and smoked (freebase and crack cocaine). Snorting is inhaling cocaine powder through the nose where it is absorbed into the bloodstream through the nasal tissues. Injecting is using a needle to release the drug directly into the bloodstream. Smoking involves inhaling cocaine smoke into the lungs, where it is absorbed into the bloodstream as quickly as when it is injected!

Cocaine is white and looks like a crystalline powder. Cornstarch, crushed or powdered vitamin substances, sugar, and flour are often mixed with cocaine to make the drug less strong. This is called "cutting" the drug. Crack cocaine looks like small (sometimes pink) rocks.

"Crack" is the street name given to cocaine that has been processed from cocaine hydrochloride to a ready-to-use form for smoking. Rather than requiring the more dangerous method of processing cocaine using ether, crack cocaine is processed with ammonia or sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and water and heated to remove the hydrochloride, thus producing a form of cocaine that can be smoked. The term "crack" refers to the crackling sound heard when the mixture is heated, presumably from the sodium bicarbonate. On the illicit market, crack, or "rock," is sold in small, inexpensive dosage units. Smoking this form of the drug delivers large quantities of cocaine to the lungs, producing effects comparable to intravenous injection. These effects are felt almost immediately after smoking, are very intense, and do not last long.
Cocaine has many nicknames and street names such as: Coke, Dust, Toot, Line, Nose Candy, Snow. Sneeze, Powder, White Pony, Flake, The Lady, Cain, Rock, Big C, Blow, Hard Rock, and Crack.

The strongest energy drink available on the broad market so far, it has three and a half times the energy producing effect of a red bull.

Cocaine comes in a small, red can, and is relatively affordable.
Why the hell are you drinking red bull? You know you can get a bajillion times the caffeine buzz if you drink cocaine.

The active ingredient in Mountain Dew, and one of the active ingredients in alcoholic energy drinks like Four Loko, Joose, Sparks, and others. The label on these products says they contain "caffeine", but this is merely a misprint. They mean said drinks contain dissolved cocaine.
Wow this Four Loko has an incredibly high cocaine content. I think I'm gonna take over the world!!

Cocaine is a central nervous system stimulant, derived from the coca plant, most commonly found in South America. I've done Weed, Ecstasy, Shrooms and Oxycontin before and I'd rank coke somewhere in the middle as far as quality/price/addiction goes. It does not cause sleepiness or lazyness, like weed often does. It does'nt produce *quite* the same euphoric 'everything in the world is perfect right now' type sensation that ecstasy does, but it's still going to make you feel very very relaxed about the world around you. Coke gives more of a supreme, almost invincible feeling that is hard to describe. It gives you ALOT of energy, you'll feel some rushes throughout your body, you'll want to do things. You'll want to write that essay about some really shitty subject, because your mind is going to be sharp as fuck and your hands will be excited to be typing really fast. I've done coke 3 times, first 2 times were just a couple lines with friends. The third time I had a gram and a quarter, which I took over a couple hours. I plugged on my xbox, hopped onto halo 3 and raped the shit out of everyone I encountered on the net. My concentration and reflexes were off the charts, and I was keeping up with rank 45+ players with no problems.
As far as the comedown goes, it's not very enjoyable like weed, or how ecstasy was alright my first (and only) time. The effects of coke last about 45 minutes or so for a good sized line, and good quality coke. As soon as you start coming down, I experienced an intense craving to snort some more, which lasted for an hour or so. After this duration I felt alright, but maybe a little bit bummed if I just stubbed my toe as I dropped a brand new hamburger onto the ground. There isn't a physical element to the comedown, just a strong psychological desire to take some more. Would I recommend trying coke? Yes, and no. Buy a gram and make sure you use it all up that night, don't use a little 'every now and then' or else there's a chance that it may develop into a habit. If you have any kind of heart problems then don't do it either, because your going to have a shitload of energy and your heart rate is going to rise. As long as you have a strong sense (at least 7 out of 10) of self control, then experimenting with coke is a great idea in my opinion, it's a completely fantastic drug when you don't let it become a habit.
friend one: there's a sweet party tonight, want to go?

friend 2: naw, I'm broke man...don't have any pitch.

friend 1: thats alright, i got some cocaine...lets do that instead. we'll own this party with our supreme confidence and social skills.

Cocaine is a drug derived from the leaves of the coca plant. It effects the release of dopamine in the brain, creating an intense euphoric high. Once the effects of the drug wear off, there is little dopamine left to be released and a state of depression occurs. Basically, you feel like shit.
Cocaine, a.k.a. coke, blow, snow, nose candy, yayo - is usually snorted, but can also be smoked in a pipe (crack) or injected. Crack is a form of freebase cocaine and creates an even more intense high in the user.
Effects of cocaine: increased body temp, increased heart rate, loss of appetite, insomnia, and paranioa. I have a tendency to look out windows and talk alot, but hey, thats just me HAHAH. Cocaine is without a doubt the greatest drug that has ever been created. I wanna say thank you to all you Columbians out there. I love you guys!!!! :-)
Hey I'm heading over to Tito's to pick up my cocaine. Do you want me to get you some shit?
