Cocaine abuse remains problematic for adults and children alike across the United States, leaving them in precarious health situations.
Research provided by the National Institute on Drug Abuse indicates that cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant drug made from the leaves of the coca plant native to South America. Cocaine’s effects can cause its user to feel euphoric and energetic, while also increasing body temperature, blood pressure, and heart rate. Users risk heart attacks, respiratory failure, strokes, seizures, abdominal pain, and nausea. There are rare occasions where sudden death can occur when cocaine is used for the first time or unexpectedly afterward.
These health situations related to cocaine abuse result from progressive use and its addictive nature. Whether a person calls it “coke” or “blow,” the bottom line is that cocaine is a dangerous drug.
