Cocaine euphemisms chart unveiled

THIS year’s top 10 names for cocaine have been announced by leading drugs trade figures.

The annual Cocaine Euphemisms Chart is created by the UK’s leading dealers, celebrities and addicts to reflect the fast-moving world of drug nicknames.

Cartel boss Nikki Hollis said: “One of the most enjoyable things about selling cocaine is the fun new terms for the drug which are constantly being created.

“One minute it’s ‘gak’ or ‘beak’, the next it’s ‘Devil’s Dandruff’. With so many people in the creative industries using cocaine, the names never stay on-trend for long, so every year we have to compile new ones.

“The chart is a combination of existing names and new ones we’ve made up while on cocaine.”

2012’s top 10 cocaine euphemisms:


Night Salt


Leonard Rossiter 

Pang Pang

Granny Wanker’s Ashes




Media Diesel

The committee behind the chart has also been recruited by tabloid newspaper editors to devise euphemisms describing the condition of celebrities pictured leaving nightclubs while clearly on cocaine.

Nikki Hollis said: “They’re decided that ‘exhausted’, ‘partied-out’ and ‘clearly had a great night’ no longer cut it.

“We’re suggesting ‘drunk in the nose’ or ‘toilet cubicle-tired’.”
