The travails of cocaine use (ultimately death)

Probably of more interest to people who don’t read my blog, but:
The price of a gram of cocaine in the US soared 89 percent -- from 96.61 dollars to 182.73 dollars -- from January 2007 to September 2008, said the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in a report.

…cocaine purity dropped during the same period from 67 percent to 46 percent

To increase profitability suppliers cut potency by mixing it with a wide variety of other substances -- an often dangerous practice.

Nonetheless key to remember: Cocaine kills, there is no safe amount of cocaine, you never know what you are getting/buying.

So now you have to spend more to die high; or maybe not quite high, if the amount is enough to kill you (or the adulterants a poisonous enough), but not quality cocaine enough to get a buzz on for you.
