The ancient Incas chewed coca leaves to increase their heart rates and speed up their breathing to deal with the mountain air of the Andes. In the mid 1800s, cocaine was first isolated from coca leaves and by 1880, it was being widely used for medicinal purposes. The drug continued to gain popularity, but with it came some dangerous side effects and consequences. In 1922, cocaine was officially banned, making it illegal to use in the U.S.
That didn’t stop the use and abuse of cocaine, though. It gained its highest popularity in the 1980s as a party drug and a means to have more energy. It was known as a “rich man’s drug” because it was expensive to keep up a cocaine habit. Today, cocaine comes in different forms and has users from all different walks of life, but it remains one of the most used illicit drugs in the country.
Cocaine is a strong neuro-stimulant drug that is used as a recreational drug. It’s a white powder in form and it can be snorted, smoked, or dissolved and injected intravenously. Cocaine used to be the second most popular illegal drug, only behind marijuana. However, because marijuana has become legal in some states, cocaine now has the top spot.
Cocaine is an addictive drug as a result of its effect on the brain’s reward pathway. After just a short time of using, there is a high likelihood of dependence occurring. Users will chase the high, using more and more of the drug until the body becomes dependent upon it. Once that happens, users are likely to become addicted, suffering from cravings and withdrawal symptoms when they try to stop using it.
Cocaine that is sold on the is usually mixed, or cut, with local anesthetics, sugar, cornstarch, quinine, levamisole (a medication used to treat parasitic worm infections that has been known to cause “flesh-eating” side-effects), or other drugs, like fentanyl, making it even more toxic and dangerous.
The typical cocaine that is bought on the street is a white or slightly off-white powder that is bitter when tasted and it causes numbness in the mouth and tongue. High-potency cocaine is pearly white in appearance. Because of its iridescent shine, it is called fish scale cocaine. This type of cocaine is much purer than regular coke. In fact, the cocaine that is typically sold on the street is only about 60% pure because of the additives that are cut into it. Fish scale cocaine is usually 90% pure, with far less additives.
Because fish scale cocaine is a purer form of the drug that doesn’t have as many additives, or adulterants, mixed in, it is more expensive than the typical cocaine sold on the streets.
