What are some consequences of cocaine use?

Because most users sniff cocaine through their noses, there are many nasal and sinus diseases that are coincident to cocaine abuse.  Damage occurs to the mucous membrane on both sides of the cartilage that separates the nostrils.   This results in perforation, crusty holes forming in the cartilage along with drying, nosebleeds and foul secretions.
