The number of cases of cocaine poisoning increased by 50 per cent last year.

98 people were treated in hospital after taking the drug in 2018 -- compared to just 66 the previous year.

The Sunday Times reports that experts are concerned cocaine use is becoming normalised in Ireland.

Health officials said the number of deaths linked to cocaine had fallen during the recession years, but climbed from 2013 onward.
