Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This program takes a sobering look at the world of cocaine use. Sigmund Freud was among the first famous people to extol the virtues of cocaine, in sharpening the mind and creating a sense of euphoria. And he was among the many who learned, to his dismay, about the destructive side of the drug. In this documentary, musicians and celebrities who have used the substance discuss their descent into addiction. They share stories about the resulting paranoia, ill health, personality and relationship problems, and brushes with death.
