What is crack and how did it get it’s name?
Crack, or base coke, is a processed form of cocaine, also known as snuff cocaine. The processing is necessary to make the cocaine smokeable and to maintain its effectiveness. The ‘cracking’ sound that is released when using it, is the reason it is called crack. Once absorbed into the body, the distinction between crack/base coke and (sniff) cocaine is lost. The effects of crack/base coke are also comparable to those of (sniff) cocaine, but a lot more intense and shorter. When it has worn off, the craving for the next dose is high. This makes the risk of loss of control and addiction very high. Therefore, agree well with yourself or others how much you will use in order not to exceed your limits.
