Storyboard Text

  • In the past, people used cocaine for all sorts of reasons, from a form of wonder medicine to a cleaning agent to clean their houses.
  • The doctors have used cocaine as a form of medicine from everything from a cold to the smallpox
  • Cocaine does wonders! God bless the one who discovered it!
  • However, after some time, people started realising the addictive side effects of such a "wonder".  People started to experience hallucinations, nausea, seizures. Several people also died.
  • My son keeps saying that he sees his grandma although she passed away last year! He is also laughing like crazy!
  • It must be the effects of cocaine. Be happy that he didn't die like my brother.
  • The tertiary amine, esters and phenyl ring give the molecule a 3D shape that fits the allotropic site of dopamine reuptake transporters. Pure cocaine is sparingly soluble in water as it largely nonpolar but when inhaled, it is absorbed directly into the blood stream and carried to transporters.
  • There, it inhibits reuptake causes dopamine to to trigger an addictive euphoria in a matter of seconds. This just explains one of the side effects. There are loads of other side effects too. In summary, cocaine is  not a miracle drug, but the bringer of destruction!
  • since these SIDE effects were discovered, public opinion of it soured and cocaine was banned. 
  • Which is why we have come up with a new antidepressent drug Ritalin. it also inhibits the function of reuptake transporters but won't give you a side order of brain damage.
  • I was put in to this horrid place for no reason. Seriously, cocaine is so useful and I can't live without it!
  • Don't worry. My men will get it here soon.
  • See, pharmaceutical companies aren't evil.
  • Except when we prevent generic manufacturing of drugs to sell to third world countries that cant afford name brand drugs.
