Default When they do coke in the movies, what do they use for the white powder?

You see it all the time, these actors sucking this white powder up their nostrils, what do you think it is? this powder they use?

How do you know it's not Coke? It isn't like they have DEA sitting there to test it. Maybe that is why Pulp fiction was so intense at points lol.

They're snorting crank, dude. It's illegal to snort coke in the U.S. Crank is OK, though.

question is, if its powdered sugar as i've heard, doesn't it stick up in passages right behind your nose? youd figure a moist warm area with sugar = heavy bacteria growth = stanky!

It's prolly just a trick... like a tube that sucks it up inside with a hiden tube hooked to a pump or something.... Anything that goes up your nose would be very disturbing!
