Cocaine (Coke, blow or snow) is a stimulant produced from the coca leaf, which usually comes as a white odourless powder. Crack cocaine (crack, rocks, gravel) is a less pure form that is processed to form crystals. Neither is widely available in New Zealand, and what there is can often be cut with other substances such as caffeine or creatine.

Using cocaine can make you feel energetic, alert and euphoric. It can also lead to reduced appetite. The initial rush wears off after 15 minutes and is usually followed by discomfort, depression and craving.
