WOW. Okay. According to scientific research, cocaine increases your pulse by about 39 beats per minute and can significantly raise your blood pressure, too. It has been linked to serious heart arrhythmias, heart attacks, stroke, and sudden death. It is one of the most powerful stimulants know to man and is very dangerous, not to mention addictive. Please stay away from it, for the sake of your health and the ones around you.
