Lupe Fiasco Says There Are Medical Benefits Of Cocaine

Lupe Fiasco explains the medical benefits of cocaine

Rapper Lupe Fiasco rejoiced when he read that the bizarre headline that Mexico has legalized cocaine for only two unnamed individuals. Using one of his own lyrics he proudly thought that marijuana legalization is on the horizon. “If they legalize that whole thang, they doing weed next cocaine, niggas ain’t gone have no jobs and Wall Street gone run the dope game…what a nigga gone do?” – Me (“NGL” Drogas Light)

He also explained in a social media post that there are medical uses for cocaine and that hospitals could even be using it already. Fiasco said, “Cocaine is used by health care professionals and hospitals to temporarily numb the lining of the mouth, nose, and throat (mucous membranes) before certain medical procedures (e.g., biopsy, stitches, wound cleaning). It is an anesthetic that works quickly to numb the area about 1-2 minutes after application. Cocaine also causes blood vessels to narrow, an effect that can decrease bleeding and swelling from the procedure.” He continued, “They already been kinda running it but still…. This makes me happy though. For various reasons most people won’t understand so I’ll keep the reasons to myself.”
