Final Answer :
B
Explanation :
Like cocaine, amphetamines can produce perceptual illusions, such as the feeling of bugs crawling on the skin or the perception of shadow people. The symptoms of amphetamine intoxication and cocaine intoxication may share some similarities, such as increased heart rate and blood pressure, but they are not completely different. Tolerance and physical dependence to amphetamines can develop quickly and the abuse of these drugs has not reduced in recent years.
