Cocaine is one of the most widely used drugs among today's addicts. It is a drug which is snorted, smoked, injected- or combined with other substances, in order to achieve the high desired by the user. While it is well recognized by its original name, "cocaine" has been given many street names by addicts, dealers, and others. Street names are often used as a code when addicts and dealers are attempting to be discreet, they may also be used to name a drug dealer's line- or to differentiate one form of the drug from another. While those who use these street names do so for the sake of being discreet,rarely are they able to keep the names secret from authorities.
There are different names used for cocaine, depending on the area in which it is used. Even though there are many names used for the drug, only certain ones are used in certain places. For instance, Midwesterners may have a name which is much different than those who live in the Southern states. Surprisingly, names for cocaine may differ within the same city, often signaling what side of town an user is from.
Regardless of what cocaine may be called, its effects are the same. Those who use the drug are usually very talkative, paranoid, and quite sensitive to things around them- including things in which they hear, feel, see and even smell. Names also do not have anything to do with the fact that one hit of cocaine can cause cardiac arrest. Even so, using nicknames for cocaine does serve its purpose, all the while making very little difference on the ill effects of the drug.

There are also street names for certain combinations of the drug, such as cocaine combined with marijuana, tobacco, amphetamines and other drugs- even heroin.
