Impacts and Dangers of Cocaine
Cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant, which causes users to be overly energetic and peppy. But this constant energy can result in frantic or manic phases and little impulse control. Side effects of cocaine use include:
- extreme happiness and energy;
- mental alertness;
- hypersensitivity to sight, sound, and touch;
- Irritability; and/or
- paranoia—extreme and unreasonable distrust of others.
Continued use of cocaine can cause numerous health issues, which include:
- constricted blood vessels;
- raised body temperature and blood pressure;
- stroke or heart attack;
- fast or irregular heartbeat;
- tremors; and/or
Studies have also shown that cocaine use can lead to an increased susceptibility to HIV and other viruses, including hepatitis C.
Impacts and Dangers of Hallucinogens
Hallucinogens can be natural or synthetic (man-made), and they have a more significant impact on a person’s brain than cocaine. This class of drugs alters a peron’ perception, thoughts, and feelings. They can even cause people to see or feel things that are not there. Common hallucinogens include:
- LSD (Lysergic Acid Diethylamide) — LSD is one of the most powerful mind-altering hallucinogens. It is made from lysergic acid, which is found in a fungus that grows on rye and other grains. LSD has many other street names, including acid, blotter acid, dots, and mellow yellow.
- Psilocybin (mushrooms) — Psilocybin comes from specific types of mushrooms that are found in tropical and subtropical regions of South America, Mexico, and the United States.
- Peyote (mescaline) — Peyote is a small, spineless cactus, although peyote can also be synthesized (man-made). The hallucinogenic ingredient in peyote is mescaline.
- DMT (Dimethyltryptamine) — DMT is a powerful chemical found naturally in some Amazonian plants, although it can also be made in a lab. Ayahuasca is a tea made from such plants.
Along with hallucinations, other short-term effects of hallucinogen use include:
- increased heart rate;
- intensified feelings and sensory experiences (such as seeing brighter colors); and/or
- changes in sense of time (for example, the feeling that time is passing by slowly).
Hallucinogen use causes a variety of short- and long-term health effects, including:
- increased blood pressure, breathing rate, or body temperature;
- loss of appetite;
- dry mouth;
- uncoordinated movements;
- excessive sweating;
- paranoia (extreme and unreasonable distrust of others);
- psychosis (disordered thinking detached from reality);
- Persistent Psychosis, a series of continuing mental problems, including visual disturbances, disorganized thinking, paranoia and mood changes; and/or
- Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder (HPPD), a recurrence of certain drug experiences, such as hallucinations or other visual disturbances that can happen without warning and may occur within a few days or more than a year after drug use.
Addiction to Hallucinogens or Cocaine
Research is divided on whether hallucinogens can cause a chemical dependence, but the the mental and behavioral effects people get from these drugs can still make them difficult to quit.
People who use cocaine, on the other hand, can become physically addicted. Attempts to stop cocaine use can result in withdrawal symptoms including agitation, depression, fatigue, interrupted sleep, and an increased appetite.
