  • Cia Drug Operatives
    3,684 words
    For the past decade and a half, the US government has sponsored the War on Drugs. This has been a massive law enforcement effort aimed at stamping out the flow and use of illegal narcotics. The main focus of this effort has been aimed at a relatively new, yet extremely potent drug - crack. However, this massive crackdown is much more than a simple effort aimed at protecting US citizens. Rather, it is instead a case of the federal governments trying to undo its own massive blunder. For much of th...

    The CIA says it has not found any record of a relationship between itself and Nicaraguan drug dealers or others who allegedly operated a 1980's cocaine ring in California and funneled the profits to a CIA-run guerrilla army. The intelligence agency's assertion was contained in documents filed Monday in U.S. District Court in San Diego. A copy of the filing was made available today by the CIA. William H.

  • Powder Cocaine Except Crack

    Cocaine Base (Crack Cocaine) As mentioned above, powder cocaine cannot be smoked unless chemically altered using the dangerous freebasing technique.

Crack is usually made by mixing two parts of cocaine hydrochloride with one part baking soda in about 20 ml of water. The solution is then heated gently until white precipitate form. Heating is halted when precipitation stops. The precipitate is filtered and retained. The precipitate may then be washed with water; this procedure is usually...

    Take a product, Coke; sell it around the world; make billions; and, you have a great corporation: Coca-Cola. Take a product, coke; sell it around the world; make billions; and, you have a horrible country: Colombia. Everyone knows that the original Coca-Cola contained extracts of coca leaves, the same used to produce cocaine. So, early Coca-Cola had some of the cocaine drug in it. Coca-Cola still uses an extract of coca leaves in Coca-Cola for flavor, but the drug has been taken out. Even the fa...
  • Use Of Powder Cocaine And Crack
    3,650 words
    This chapter introduces the pharmacology of crack cocaine to help readers evaluate the claims that have been made regarding its danger to individual users and society. Because, materially and pharmacologic ally, crack is cocaine, most of what is known about cocaine applies to crack as well. The fact that crack is smoked rather than sniffed, swallowed, or injected is significant. Our review of the evidence indicates, however, that its importance has been exaggerated. Clearly, using either cocaine...
  • Crack Cocaine
    1,527 words
    Cocaine is an alkaloid found in leaves of a South American shrub. It is a powerfully reinforcing stimulant. The drug induces a sense of exhilaration in the user primarily by blocking the dopamine from going into your brain. Life-long happiness will be genetically pre-programmed. "Peak experiences" will become a natural part of everyday mental health. Cocaine, alas, offers merely a tragically delusive short-cut. Before Columbian times, the coca leaf was reserved for Inca royalty. The natives subs...
