cocaine bugs
 n.pl.— «Heavy cocaine users report a sense that things are crawling on or under their skin, the so-called “cocaine bugs” phenomenon. “But these are pseudo-hallucinations….The patients always say it’s as if there were bugs under their skin. They don’t act on a belief that there actually are.”» —“Free base: The new fad drug that can really blow your mind” by Charles Perry Chicago Tribune June 14, 1980.
