In brief: Men/Women The Same
Men and women are about equally likely to abuse stimulants such as Cocaine and methamphetamine.
But there are gender differences. Women report first using Cocaine at younger ages than men. Evidence found in animals and humans suggests that women more quickly develop dependence on stimulants and are more prone to relapse after quitting the habit.
