    Cocaine (benzoylmethylecgonine), a local anesthetic and intoxicant in use for hundreds of years, currently is enjoying widespread popularity in the United States. This frequent use probably is due to the profound stimulatory effect of cocaine on the central nervous system and is occurring despite aggressive law enforcement activity because cocaine is a Schedule II substance [1].
