So how did Americans ultimately say no to cocaine?

The economy tanked and we couldn't afford it any longer.

The quality.  Ultimately the greed of the dealers having stepped on it so much that it turned so many customers away.

Just like when Pepsi became a major competitor to Coke in the great depression by offering twice as much for the same price, Meth has became a major competitor to coke, for mostly the same reasons.

Meth happened.
cheaper
more powerful
more addictive
no need to deal with colombia.

Quality issues and lack of disposable income did it for me.

The price of cocaine has gone up?

Someone should tell the White House drug czar.

Meth stepped in for the "gotta stay up" type people. Not just crystal, but also various prescriptions.

And now pot delivery drivers don't want to carry coke because the risks of being robbed by stoners is much lower.

Scarface is an overrated movie that is only popular because gang members think they are Al Pacino, which then means suburban white kids think it's cool because gangbangers think it's cool.

DIng Ding Ding we have a winner.  Dr. Shopping became more socially acceptable than having a coke dealer on speed dial.

It's almost like coked up doctors needed money for coke so they started writing scripts for cash.

This, I saw that movie when it came out and 99% of the people I knew thought there were no redeeming qualities to Al Pacino's character.

A large percentage of my friends "partied" throughout the last decade and a half.  I simply haven't in a long time because I'm old.  And I always get a sinus infection afterwards.  I never noticed any slowdown, older people quit, younger ones replaced them.

Many a good night was had, with 17 people all talking nonstop, simultaneously.  And sexual shenanigans, but now I'm old and monogamous.

Cocaine was a fashionable drug for the disco set in the 1970s and early 80s.  By the mid 1980s so much of it was getting imported  that there was a glut and the price dropped.  With the stuff cheap and commonly available, it lost the edge it had from being a fashionable "thing" for the well-to-do party set, and that was that.

How much of a glut was there?  Well, so much that the manufacturers/importers/marketers had to invent crack--essentially, a poor man's form of preprocessed freebase.

After cocaine achieved mass-market appeal, it was never fashionable again.  Kinda like a high-end designer brand that went downmarket to gain placement in Target or something.

"I mean, when we look at prescription drugs and the number of deaths that are occurring, those are greater than the deaths from cocaine and heroine combined," he says.

But they can't find a drug people have turned to instead of cocaine. I wonder if they can find find their ass with both hands. I also question how many people Wonder Woman is killing these days.

Much like the original Scarface and The Godfather in the 70's, the movie was about the American Dream and how people lose sight of it when they are encased in greed. You're supposed to see a likable character that becomes evil and loses something pure, namely his family. In the new Scarface there is no likable character, he's already evil, and he never loses anything that's pure because he never had anything that was pure.

So if you've got a fourth rate brain, you watch Scarface and think "He made it all by himself, that's the American Dream.", therefore he's a hero to those people.

I dunno, it seems to have a rather stable market in the restaurant industry - at least in every kitchen I've worked - here and in the UK (but far more waiting staff in the UK take it, compared to Sweden)

I tried coke a few times in the states, was never impressed.
Once I went South of the border, the price decreased and the quality dramatically increased.
As for popularity, if the availability is there, so is the demand.

Um I'm pretty sure people stopped doing cocaine once they found out it gives you dementia.
The greatest example was Saint Reagan, from his endless hours of doing cocaine off of every bit of Nancy's body.

/The cocaine also helped to numb her nether regions for the extended sex sessions from Reagans close circle of friends.

Well... When it pastes up, you have a reason to lick it clean.  Is it worth wasting a $20 line to lick a boob or ass?  Every situation is different.

LOL.  When I moved earlier this year I found some of my old coke tools.  I hadn't used them in 15 years.  Yes, I kept them.  The vial is hand blown glass and was a birthday present (yes, it was full on my birthday).
