The Cold Hard Truth About Drugs

Marijuana and Cocaine

Marijuana

Marijuana is a drug that has been around for a while. It is derived from the hemp plant, and users usually smoke it in loosely rolled cigarettes called “joints.” Being a hallucinogen, marijuana may cause impaired coordination and a dreamy state of relaxation that enforces fantasies.


Cocaine

Cocaine is the most powerful nervous system stimulant in all of nature, extracted from the leaves of the coca plant. Because it is most commonly found in the form of a white powder, it is taken through a process deemed “snorting.” Cocaine constricts blood vessels, making the user feel energetic and self-confident.
