Cocaine white powder comes from the dried leaves of a coca plant grown in South America. Crack is developed from cooking the combination of cocaine powder and baking soda, which is then broken in to small pieces or "rocks". This highly narcotic drug's crackling sound from being heated gives it the name "crack" Cocaine and crack are some of the most destructive drugs on the illegal market. They will damage and destroy a person's mind, health, personality and life.

Usually white in color, crack cocaine is extremely addictive and can be dangerous. Crack cocaine is a form of the drug that gives the individual a very quick high. It can be taken by inhaling or snorting, injecting through a vein and smoking it in a pipe. Crack causes a short-lived, intense high which is immediately followed by the opposite, intense depression, on edge and the craving for more. It can also make the user feel:- 

  • Paranoid
  • Angry 
  • Hostile
  • Anxious

Even when taken in small amounts for a short time, cocaine can increase the heart rate, cause muscle spasms and convulsions. If you’re worried about or are suspicious that someone you know is taking cocaine, there are many short term effects to look out for such as:- 

  • Loss of appetite
  • Contracted blood vessels
  • Nausea
  • Disturbed sleep patterns
  • Bizarre, erratic and often violent behavior
  • Dilated pupils
  • Panic and psychosis

One of the main problems with cocaine and crack is it can cause a dependency within just a few weeks. Sound like anybody you know? What a lot of first time users don’t realize about crack cocaine is that the effects last such a brief time. It will only take around 5 to 15 minutes for a crack addict to need another rock. What's more, cocaine and crack are very expensive. Keeping up with the supply can easily drive someone on the road to ruin. Theft, prostitution, drug dealing and other types of crime are all associated with cocaine and crack. In no time at all an addict’s life turns into a vicious circle of getting more drugs, using them and wanting more. Everything that’s good in his or her life will sooner or later drop by the wayside.
