    Are there ways to get it out of your system? If so, what are they?

    Cocaine has a half-life of approximately 1 hour that means that 5 hours after the administration of a single dose of cocaine all of the cocaine would have been metabolized; cocaine is metabolized by hydrolysis to yield benzoylecgonine which is the metabolite that drug tests look for, it can be detected in urine for around 2-4 days after use for a dose consisting of a few lines in an infrequent user (2-3 times a month), for a chronic user with daily use or every few days it can be detected for up to 10 days after the last dose.

    Being more specific; the onset of snorted cocaine occurs within 5 minutes, effects peak around 20-25 minutes after administration and has a half-life of 60-90 minutes; intravenously injected or smoked (crack or freebase) cocaine has an onset within 10 seconds, peaking around 3 minutes after administration and has a half life of 40-60 minutes.

    But no matter the route of administration the cocaine is mostly metabolized to benzoylecgonine which lasts a lot longer in the body (half-life is 7-9 hours and with frequent use of cocaine it accumulates in the body) and can be detected in urine for a minimum of 72 hours.
