Troubled rocker Courtney Love is giving up cocaine - because the quality of the illegal narcotic isn't pure enough.

The former Hole frontwoman, who recently spent time is an American rehabilitation clinic, finds it near impossible to find good cocaine.

Love laments, "I found out something really interesting about cocaine.

"The reason grown-ups get all the good stuff and whenever we touch it it's disgusting and makes our noses run, is because they took the ether out.

"So there's no point in even doing cocaine any more because there's no such thing."
