Nicknames: Rock, Red Rock, Cookies, Raw, Hard Ball, Devil Drug
Crack is produced by dissolving powdered cocaine in a mixture of water and baking soda. The mixture is boiled until a solid substance forms. The solid is removed from the liquid, dried, and then broken into the chunks (rocks) that are sold as crack cocaine. Crack rocks are white or off-white colored and comes in various sizes.
Crack is extremely addicting because of the intense high and euphoric effects produces. Crack is nearly always smoked. I have heard people say when you take a hit of a rock your whole head starts spinning. Crack is inexpensive compared to cocaine and is often referred to as the “poor man’s cocaine” because it is a quick, cheap high. In contrast, powder cocaine is expensive and you will need a lot of it.
This is all I know about crack, I’ve honestly never tried it and I want to keep it that way. It isn’t like I haven’t had the opportunity; it is a moral thing where I feel that it is completely pointless. This is not a recreational drug; it consumes your life so it revolves around the drug. You are pretty much asking for a bad life once you start smoking crack. I have never seen anything good come out of it. I do not even want to try it once for the experience because it is not worth it to me. Part of me knows it is a hard drug not worth trying and the other part knows that I will probably get addicted to it after one hit.
If you smoke crack, there’s no turning back.
