You need to bear in mind that cocaine is among the most dangerous drugs for humans because it's almost impossible to find a way to get rid of this addiction. It grips its user both mentally and physically mainly because it stimulates nerve endings within the brain that create a euphoric state. The more a user uses it, the more he/she needs to get a high.

It is true that cocaine is extremely dangerous, but it's a sad reality that it has become a multibillion-dollar enterprise with users from all age groups, economic levels, and occupations. Even schoolchildren abuse the drug. Its use can cause several complications, including death, which is the outcome of issues like respiratory failure, cerebral hemorrhage, stroke, and heart attack. Pregnant women who use cocaine give birth to children who have several birth defects. It is important that you know different nicknames for cocaine and help your child quit this habit while there's still time to help them make that change to their life.
