Well, one could also argue that Cooper is still sleepwalking as Dougie. Furthemore, the designer drug name is sparkle. Both these have double meanings here.
Pretty certain the "sparkle" Red referred to, that Richard had a taste of, was just cocaine. A certain type of high purity cocaine ("fishscale" it's often called) has an almost shiny, glittery, sparkly look to it. Thus, Red casually referring to the coke by a slang word like "sparkle" makes more sense to me than it being some actual fictional drug literally called Sparkle. I know that Chinese designer drugs were mentioned in that one scene a few ep's back, as being what some high school kid OD'd on, but I don't see why a lot of posters are inferring that this is what everybody in the show is getting high on... unless I missed something.
IMO, "Chinese designer drug" smacks of Fentanyl or a Fent analogue, or some synthetic opioid mix - which is very common these days and often comes from China. However, Richard was hardly nodding off at the wheel and seemed much more like he'd just had a snort of strong cocaine. This would also would make sense considering the prevalence of that drug in Twin Peaks history. Granted, opioids are the most popular commodities these days in the realm of hard drugs, hence maybe the topical kid OD'ing reference; but I just assumed the stuff Red and Richard were dealing in was the same old "Santa Claus" that Bobby/Mike/Laura/Leo/the Renaults, et al, were involved with.
Nitpicking, doubt it matters, but just my $0.02.
