To read recent media reports, you could be forgiven for thinking that cocaine had just reached our shores. However, Druglink has been reporting on the growing market for cocaine in the UK for over fifteen years. In this special online-only dossier, we bring together some of our key investigations and feature stories on cocaine, including the first reporting of a two-tier market in the drug and the spread of its use to blue collar workers. Our dossier provides a unique narrative of how cocaine moved from celebrity champagne drug to an integral part of the UK’s night time economy.
