A cocaine spoon
, referred to as a "coke spoon"
, or simply "spoon"
, is an instrument used in the process of insufflating ("snorting", sniffing) cocaine
. The spoons are usually long and slender metallic objects with varying designs and patterns, with a small bowl at the end. The bowls on cocaine spoons usually have more depth in relation to width than other spoons, and hold about 1/2 a usual dose of cocaine when filled. Thus, they are usually filled twice for a single dose. Spoons, although enjoying a high popularity during the 1980's, have fallen out of favor to the more common "line" preparation today.
