Recognizing Alcohol & Drug Addiction : What is Cocaine?


Hi, my name is John DePalma from New York
City on behalf of Expert Village I’m here today to help you recognize drug and alcohol
addiction. And now cocaine. Which happened to be my drug of choose. Cocaine comes in
many shapes and forms. It’s not the good old powder drug it used to be. It’s out there
in crack, base which is another form of crack cocaine which you make yourself. But cocaine
is probably the most addictive of the drugs out there behind heroin. If your kid is doing
cocaine, sometimes they can hide it, sometimes it’s very hard to tell. We’ll discuss symptoms
later and what to look out for. But cocaine is definitely a drug that can kill. You have
heart attacks from cocaine. Cocaine was very popular back in the 60s and 70s. Back then
they sold for upwards of $100 a gram where now it sells for $20 a gram. Which just leads
more to accessibility and it being a very popular drug once again. These kids are able
to get it cheap, do a lot of it and get the high they’re looking for. It’s a very addictive
high, it’s a very incising high and therefore it makes it one of the most dangerous drugs
out there. So if your kids are doing cocaine you need to watch out for the warning signs
and you need to get them off of it quick.
