Cocaine, or also known as coke, is a strong stimulant used as a recreational drug. Commonly, users can get it through snorting, inhaling as smoke, or dissolving and injecting it into the veins.

Although health care providers use it as a medical purpose, recreational use of cocaine is addicting and abusive. Cocaine has a small number of medical uses, such as numbing and decreasing bleeding during nasal surgery.

Due to its effect on the reward pathway in the brain, cocaine is considered addictive. There is a high risk of repetitive use and that a dependence will occur. Cocaine is a stimulant drug, speeding up the messages traveling between the brain and the rest of the body.

This documentary takes a look at the supply of cocaine in the world, both legal and illegal.
