Cocaine is a very addictive stimulant that’s made from the leaves of a coca plant. It comes in a powder, and is often mixed with other substances. It also comes in the form of a rock crystal that people smoke. Cocaine changes the way the neurotransmitters communicate across your brain. It primarily targets the dopamine receptor, which releases pleasurable feelings throughout your body. This change in brain chemistry is what keeps teens chasing the pleasurable feelings attached with cocaine use.
