Cocaine: The Rush to Destruction

by Zachary Chastain

Blow, snow, crack . . . Whatever you call it, cocaine is a big problem in the United States and Canada. More than a million individuals in the United States can be classified as being addicted to cocaine. "Cocaine: The Rush to Destruction" tells the story of cocaine, its history and role in medicine, religion, and even soda production. Learn about the biology behind the highs--and lows--of the drug's use. You will also discover the long- and short-term effects of cocaine abuse and addiction, and you'll get information on kicking the cocaine habit. First-person stories of individuals with cocaine addiction--and some who are fighting the addiction--provide cautionary tales as well as stories of hope.
