The most addictive and most powerful form of this is smoked. This is referred to as crack. It has desecrated communities across the country, and caused irreparable damage to families.
When cocaine first became popular in the 80’s, it was viewed as a designer drug for the rich playboys and movie stars. Many people did not realize how bad it was for them. It was pretty expensive so it was hard for many people to afford to do it enough to get addicted. Then crack exploded around the country and popped up in every low income part of every city and America had an epidemic on its hands. Crime rates went up and children began to suffer because of the erratic behavior of their parents.
Because of the brevity of the high that crack cocaine creates, and the intense crash, people were committing all kinds of crimes and neglecting their responsibilities. Addicts would become so desperate for the next high that they would be willing to do anything in order to get more crack. Not only did this affect communities because of the lack of productive citizens, but it created an opportunity for gangs and criminals to make large profits from the sale of crack to the addicts in their areas.
The problem that cocaine has created is due to the extreme cocaine withdrawal a person will go through when they stop doing the drug. They will go from extreme ecstasy to extreme depression in a matter of minutes and will crave the good feeling.
