Transcript of COCAINE PREZI

Cocaine This is He is PSYCHO ACTIVE DRUGS With Let's see what goes on in his brain... Source Of Cocaine: Effect on the BRAIN: 1-->Cocaine blocks the dopamine transporters in the pre-synaptic neurone.
2-->The function of these transporters is to remove dopamine molecules from the synaptic cleft.
3-->When cocaine blocks the transporters, dopamine stays in the synaptic cleft, and therefore binds over and over again to the protein receptors on the post synaptic membrane.
4-->This over stimulates the cell, and it leaves the user feeling excited, energetic and euphoric. Cocaine is an EXCITATORY drug How Cocaine acts in Synaptic Transmission When cocaine enters the brain, it blocks the dopamine transporter from pumping dopamine back into the transmitting neuron, flooding the synapse with dopamine. This intensifies and prolongs the stimulation of receiving neurons in the brain’s pleasure circuits, causing a cocaine high.

Talking rapidly The coca plant grows high in the Andean mountains along the western coast of South America (shown by the dark green area on the map). The coca leaves are chewed by the Indians of Peru and Bolivia. They act as a mild stimulant, suppressing the hunger and fatigue that go along with living and working at high altitudes.

It takes 500 pounds of coca leaves, worth about $500, to produce a pound of cocaine. That pound of cocaine is worth $9,000 in Colombia and $27,000 in the United States. Once in the United States, the pound of cocaine is cut (diluted) five or six times and is worth about $150,000 when finally sold on the street.

Formerly, cocaine was cut with glucose, lactose, or quinine. Today it may be cut with talcum power, corn starch, or any other readily available white, powdery substance. http://deep6inc.com/previewcoc02.html
