Both!: It depends on what your body responds to the most. Both drugs are highly addictive and both are extremely difficult to stop using. One body may respond more to one of the substances and another body to the other one. However, neither drug is something to fool around with because of the detrimental effects on the body, brain and life of the addict.

They've always been: There were actually a greater proportion of our population using opiates and Cocaine at the turn of the 20th century (the late 19th century and early 20th) than there are now. Actually, these drugs are much less expensive than they used to be, with heroin being available for as little as $3 a bag (about 20 mg/heroin) and Cocaine at $25/gram.

Yeah it can: In very very heavy users of cocaine, it wasn't so much dumber as crazier, with some users showing what was essentially a chronic brain syndrome that kind of looked like what you see in elderly demented patients. They were very depressed, anhedonic (no pleasure in anything) and looked a lot like chronic undifferentiated schizophrenics. Mephedrone even more so than cocaine, bath salts very toxic.

Cocaine positive: If you are in the space where it is being smoked or it gets into your food or drink somehow, yes. Sometimes marijuana is laced with harder drugs like Cocaine or opiates. People who smoke such concoctions would test positive for the hard drugs. Otherwise, just knowing someone who uses Cocaine should not cause one to test positive.

Cocaine: To be quite honest I don't think it is fair to ask a doctor how they can help you a clear your system of an illegal substance. If you are an adult and choose to use then be prepared for whatever consequences may result. May recommendation would be abstaining all together. Good luck.
