Cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant drug made from the leaves of coca plant native to South America. It produces short-term euphoria, high levels of energy, and talkativeness in addition to potentially dangerous physical effects like raising heart rate and blood pressure.
Cocaine affects the body in a variety of ways. It constricts blood vessels; dilates pupils; increases body temperature, heart rate and blood pressure. It can also cause headaches and gastrointestinal complications. Most seriously, cocaine use can lead to heart attacks or strokes, which may cause sudden death. Cocaine related deaths are often a result of the heart stopping following by an arrest of breathing. People who use cocaine also put themselves at risk for contracting HIV. Cocaine use impairs judgment and can lead to risky sexual behavior.
