Cocaine is as cheap as ever, according to a new analysis of government data by a Washington, D.C. think tank.

The findings appear to contradict claims by U.S. law enforcement officials that the drug has become more expensive. "[Over] the last two years there's been a sustained increase on the price of cocaine," said Drug Enforcement Administration (http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/story?id=7354412&page=1) operations chief Tom Harrigan in a recent interview with ABC News. Harrigan credited efforts by the United States, Mexico and local U.S. governments.

But the retail price for cocaine (http://a.abcnews.com/TheLaw/story?id=5938061&page=1) in 2007, the most recent year studied, was less than half what it was in 1984, when Jay McInerney's novel of a coke-addled Manhattanite, "Bright Lights, Big City (http://i.abcnews.com/Politics/story?id=5560261&page=1)," was first published, according to the report by the policy group Washington Office on Latin America, which cited a newly-released analysis by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy.

Cocaine can be amazing once in a while. Do not mix with alcohol, however.

Even drug dealers can't catch a break in the slumping economy. By the way, "Cocaine" by Eric Clapton is an awesome song!

Cheaper for the people who buy it in bulk, then in turn step on it like an elephant, and then sell their crap for the same price they always do.

DO mix cocaine with supermodels, stock swindlers, and New York YankeesŪ.
