"In 1996, 3.6 million Americans indulged in the dangers associated with the drug crack cocaine ( Nadelson 31 ). Along with a short-lived "high" users experienced symptoms ranging from nausea and vomiting to death. According to NIDA's Drug Abuse Warning Network, an average of 2500 Americans per year lose their lives due to this deadly "treat" (The Crack Cocaine Epidemic 14 ). Even more astonishing is the number of adolescent users in the nation. A shocking 7 % of high school students admit to using cocaine, and in Miami, Florida, the average age for a person to start using the drug is 12.6 years old ( The Crack Cocaine Epidemic 17 )!
