Earlier this week, singer Halsey was caught snorting a "mysterious white substance" while on vacation with her boyfriend, G-Eazy.

The couple was partying on a yacht in Miami when Halsey was spotted bringing a small spoon to her nose. 

Halsey has neither confirmed nor denied that the substance in the spoon was cocaine, but the internet wasted no time slamming the singer for her alleged drug use.

The damning photos immediately hit the internet...

But Halsey's alleged cocaine use isn't a joke — it's concerning.

Drugs like cocaine are extremely addictive. 

According to the American Addiction Center, cocaine is one of the most potent stimulants available.  

People quickly become addicted to both the physical effects and the mental effects; however, cocaine abuse also has serious side effects — including damage to the cardiovascular system, paranoia and delusions, and damage to the nose, mouth, throat, and upper respiratory system.

Instead of cracking jokes about a deadly habit, these photos should spark important conversations about drug addiction.
