Ask Erowid Question and Answer: Can lidocaine be made into cocaine.
This chemical is used both to soothe baby s teething pain
and increase drug dealer profits.
Since illegal drugs are expensive, drug dealers try to cut or dilute a drug if they can.
Obviously if you cut a drug like cocaine and make it 50 drug and 50 something cheaper, you ll save some money.
You need some kind of bulking agent.
But if you cut cocaine with something inert, which just mimics what cocaine looks or feels like, a user will think the drug is weak.
That s been done with substances such as baking powder or sugars such as lactose.
So what you want is something to mix with the cocaine that mimics the effects of the cocaine, but is not too expensive.
You can do that with methamphetamine, which gives a user a stimulant effect, but that drug s illegal, and expensive, and maybe gives less than predictable effects.
And really, you might just as well sell the methamphetamine.
What you want is a drug that closely mimics cocaine, and is cheap, and is not illegal.
What you want is benzocaine.
Benzocaine is a topical pain reliever that looks and feels like cocaine.
It s a fine chemical, used in products like Baby Orajel and Maximum Strength Orajel.
It mimics the effect of cocaine by numbing a user s nose and mouth in the same way as cocaine, so users are fooled into thinking they re getting a higher quality product - a cocaine that contains, well, more cocaine.
And if a user tries to make crack cocaine out of cocaine adulterated with benzocaine, the fake additive can t be detected.
It s also easier to import because it s legal.
This means that over time, cocaine is becoming less and less pure to the end user, and more and more profitable to the drug dealer.
Some countries such as the UK have made it illegal to buy benzocaine if it s used to supply the underground drug trade.
And since drug dealers won t come out and buy it themselves, they re using middlemen who are marking up the benzocaine, and creating a black market for the cutting agent.
Some have said that the mark-up for the fake cocaine is almost as high as the mark-up for real cocaine.
In one case in the UK, someone was selling cutting agents from his home garage, advertising in local papers and on the Internet.
He was also the Association of Chief Police Officers specialist on the cocaine industry.

ID 1791 : Can lidocaine be made into cocaine?
Benzocaine crack scam nets drug dealers massive profits. DRUG gangs are passing off a dental anaesthetic as crack cocaine, a Daily Star Sunday investigation.
Hi I have some lidocaine hydrocloride oral topical solution, USP 2 viscous and was wondering if you knew a way to turn it into cocaine or a cocaine-like substance. If it is possible at all.
Lidocaine is a synthetic local anesthetic. There are many similar drugs such as benzocaine found in over the counter mouth sore or bug bite treatments and procaine better known as Novocaine. Some of these drugs have uses as heart medication as well as being local anesthetics. In spite of the similarity in names, these drugs are not very closely related chemically to cocaine. They aren t even all chemically related to each other. Procaine was the first one developed, and was given the brand name Novocaine - short for nova cocaine, or new cocaine. It was developed as a replacement for cocaine but lacks cocaine s euphoric and addictive properties. There is no practical way to convert lidocaine or any of the other cains into cocaine, or to get high from them.
