‘Know what you’re putting in your nose! Here at last is a book on cocaine that gives useful information for the consumer’ – back cover.

Written with the principle of harm minimisation in mind, this handbook to cocaine use is packed with practical advice on how to test for purity and adulterants in cocaine purchased from street vendors. Published at the height of the snow-blind cocaine craze of the late seventies and eighties, over a hundred thousand copies were printed in just 1976 alone. An instant cult classic.
