I've seen and heard some stuff but I don't know for sure. I've heard of people in the area having nose bleeds, vomiting, excessive anger and aggression and as far as I know there aren't any diseases or sicknesses that causes all these symptoms except excessive use of the drug.

Now I know that meth, pain pills, and marijuana are major problems, but is cocaine among one of the drugs of choice in the area?

The main reason why I'm asking is I'm concerned about someone not who is using it themselves but they are surrounded by ones who may very well be. If anyone could give me some additional info that would be fantastic. Thanks.

All I can say is if they are using cocaine they better have a good job ..because that stuff is expensive. And yes cocaine will cause nose bleeds because it dries out the membranes in the nostrils.and as far as the aggression goes it is because it triggers the neurons in the brain to react .but also meth can cause nose bleeds from dryness from the nostrils and the sinus cavities.the reason of my knowing this is because my ex husband was a heavy user I guess that,s why he is my ex. Every dime he made went on his cocaine.and other drugs, he also lost his ,job,family,home,vehicle,etc.o nly time will tell if they are using if personal belongings are being sold,then other family members are being stolen from them and borrowing money from friends and family and excuses why they can't be paid back at this time, also watch for weight loss,they get to looking pretty rough,especially if they are using ex husband looks like death warmed can find all of the info you need by searching the can type in what does someone look like on meth then compare this person that your speaking of to the pictures of these meth heads.or type in behaviors of someone on cocaine and pictures.wish you we'll. if cocaine is in this area I don't know of it but if it is I would say only a few could afford it.

Thank you so much for your input. If anyone here ever sees something, please say something. Just like in regards to terrorism, if you see something notify the local or state authorities. We need to get some more scum off the street.

Thanks for the info, I had a feeling that they were. And since I'm not on any of them or know anyone close to me who is,

I was curious like cocaine, can meth and whatever type of pills that are the most popular in the area, can they cause symptoms such as nose bleeds, vomiting, excessive anger and aggression?

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I do know coke can cause nose bleeds and I would imagine the same with snorting meth. As far as vomiting goes, that could be pills because they will make you sick if you do too much. The excessive anger and aggression can be both meth, coke or pills. I would think coke is in this area, but meth is so much cheaper and last much longer that people have switched to it.
