Yes and yes.

Cocaine, like other sympathomimetic drugs (meth, speed, etc) alters the uptake of certain neurotransmitters in the central nervous system. In other words, it messes with your brain chemistry. In large enough doses, it can cause drug-induced psychosis – hallucinations, delusions, and violent behavior.

Working in the ER, I’ve seen many many cases of drug-induced psychosis. Typically, symptoms clear when enough of the drug is metabolized by the body, and behavior returns to normal. However, abuse it long enough, and you can develop symptoms that do NOT clear. Unfortunately, I’ve seen this a lot too.
