Cocaine is a powerfully addictive drug, classified as a stimulant. It can be consumed in a few different ways: snorted, injected, smoked. Many users prefer snorting, as this provides the quickest way for it to enter the bloodstream. “Crack” is a smokable form of cocaine that is heated to produce “rocks” or “crystals.”
Cocaine users often develop a tolerance to the drug rather quickly, meaning they need to administer more and more of the drug to achieve the same “high." Cocaine abuse can lead to lifelong adverse consequences. It is important for those with an addiction to seek treatment.
