Cocaine is x drnri obt.'imed from the cocoa shrub and :s used professionally as a local anesthetic. Illegally, ir s a silmulant- vyte of drug usually taken by hypodermic needle. It causes such a high state of .stimula- tion the u-er often seeks de- pressants to help "bring him clown." said an official of the city police. Statistics snow a common de- pressant used is heroin and this combination is called a speed- hall. Physical dependence is de- veloped on coeainc. It eausos severe feelings of depression and delusions which is why it ranks high on the list of causes of suicide. Addressing the Area Eleven Home r.nd School Association convention at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Saturday, Mr. MacKinnon said factual in- formation on all aspects of the drug question mirst he dis- i perscd to both parents and stu- j dents.

Tie said a home with real understanding and facts is the best pla :e to educate the youth. He said parents become, "up tight'' about drugs mainly be cause they don't know about or understand them. "II is embar- rassing for parents not to know." Mr. MacKinnon said all or- ganizations dealing with the drug problem should be respon- sible for getting ar.d dissemina- ting the information for the benefit of all people. Ho said these organizations should got the information, as- sess it anci have it available.
