Cocaine Standards

Cocaine is an addictive illicit stimulant with appetite suppressant and topical anesthetic properties. The free base form of cocaine, known as “crack”, can be smoked by users for a quicker high. Although cocaine use in the U.S has declined in recent years, the rate still leads the world.1 According to the latest report by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), cocaine is among the most commonly used illicit stimulants in Europe and is the second most seized illicit substance overall, with double the number of law enforcement seizures reported for either heroin or amphetamines.2
