In France, the number of cases of cocaine poisoning has doubled compared to last year and is still growing. This was reported by the French pharmacological agency.
The agency received data from 13 centers for the treatment of drug and alcohol dependence. After processing the information received, the medical service stressed that “the number of reports of cocaine poisoning doubled between 2015-2016, and the trend towards an increase is confirmed by data coming in 2017,” and the severity of poisoning is increasing.
It is reported that at the moment the country is conducting a nationwide study of the situation with drug use, where the results will be presented at the end of the year. It is assumed that the increase in the number of poisonings may be due to the fact that drug dealers distribute more concentrated cocaine in order to satisfy demand for the drug.
What the drug is concentrated with can vary from anything between laundry detergent, to laxatives and anesthetics.
