Why is Cocaine and Drugs so Expensive?

If you are in hurry to know the answer to this question. Here is it in brief. Because it's illegal. To make it worth the supplier's and dealer's while, they need to be compensated by extra money to entice them to run the risk of going to prison. So you're paying extra for the risk that they take by providing you an illegal product.

Lets us understand this whole scenario from the origin. I mean making of Cocaine. 

How is Cocaine Made?

Cocaine is synthesized from Cocoa Leaves to form a paste. It takes a 1000 kilograms of coca leaves to process into 1 kilo of pure cocaine. To produce pure cocaine it takes a big mass of coca leaves, chemicals, and time to extract the cocaine in a multistage process from the leaves. This makes pure cocaine much more expensive than coca leaves. 

Can Cocaine kill you?

Cocaine can kill you if you're a complete hardhead. For example, snorting an entire gram baggie in 10 minutes would raise your BP enough to cause your heart to beat too fast, which leads to blood not entering the atrium and ventricle chambers of the heart correctly, which leads to you knocking on heaven's metaphorical door.

How does Cocaine Addiction work?

Cocaine addiction is quite dangerous for a person as it makes them impatient for the consumption and slowly breaks down the nervous system. The drug sends high levels of dopamine, a natural chemical messenger into the body and then the parts of your brain that control pleasure. This buildup causes intense feelings of energy and alertness.

Cocaine side effects include:

  • Happiness and euphoria feelings
  • More energy even for a short time
  • Mental alertness and improved confidence
  • Paranoia, irritability, and hypersensitivity

Long-term abuse of cocaine makes the users develop and exhibit:

  • Headaches and seizures
  • Heart disease and stroke
  • Nosebleeds and lung issues
  • Loss of appetite

The End Notes

So. That's all in this article. I hope you liked it. Everyone says no don’t do it as it’s unhealthy, addictive, and can ruin your life. All this is true, but won’t always stop a person trying it. I wish that you're here for only an information seeker perspective. And I advise you to stay away from such kind of artificial joy providing things. Have a good one.
