Is there a resurgence in the use of what is foolishly considered by some to be a benign ‘party drug’, asks Dr Des Corrigan.

 

Drugs experts and media commentators have recently claimed that cocaine use is now so widespread that every town and village in Ireland is awash with the white powder. How true these claims are is difficult to judge in the absence of up-to-date, objective data. In this article, I will look at what data we do have and review the health implications of the use of a drug that many users foolishly consider a benign ‘party drug’.
