Caption: Cocaine snorting. Man sniffs a line of white cocaine powder, by using a rolled up piece of paper inserted into the nose. Cocaine is an alkaloid drug obtained from leaves of the coca plant Erythroxylon coca. After being absorbed into the bloodstream through the nasal membrane, the drug stimulates the central nervous system to produce feelings of awakeness, exhilaration and energy. Prolonged use of cocaine leads to anxiety, paranoia and psychological dependency. Damage to the lining of the nose may occur by snorting this drug. Overdose can result in cardiac arrhythmia, seizure and death.
