In brief: More or less
Teens may not experience the same degree of adverse effects compared to adults, as teens have young, strong bodies which can recover easily.
Also, Cocaine really does not cause withdrawal symptoms in the classical sense, as do for example opiates, benzodiazapines and alcohol. The best thing is not to start and it you have already started-quit. Cocaine can be deadly.
