Step 1: Look out for razor blades, straws and smooth surfaces. Cocaine is consumed by inhaling it through the nose, thus requiring a smooth surface area to arrange the cocaine in a row, then use a razor blade to size it properly and snort through a straw.
Step 2: Cocaine is normally transported in small vials, folded paper or folded dollar bills. Its texture is similar to confectionery sugar. Beware of vials or folded paper with a sugar-like substance in them.
Step 3: If you take a small amount of cocaine and place it on your tongue, it should have a bitter taste and cause your tongue to go numb.
