There has been a lot written about cocaine recently, especially with the advent of the internet. Distribution of articles and notes about it, where it comes from, how its use expanded after the 1960’s and much more can be found on the much-loved site, Wikipedia. The articles therein are written by anyone and everyone for publication to a wider audience. Much is said about its addictive properties, the downsides of its use, the heartbreak caused to families where a cocaine addict resides and the deaths from overdosing on it. I make no apologies for writing even more.
While there are rituals that users go through when doing cocaine, the drug itself is sometimes misunderstood by those who use it—what it is and what effect it will have, both good and bad. One of its main attributes of cocaine use is its ability to take you up high and then on the other side, to take you down.
If you buy cocaine (like Lance used to), there is apparently an 80% chance that it has been cut with a skin rotting chemical! It has been found in a study by drugabuse.com that almost two-thirds of cocaine is cut with levamisole.
