Cocaine is often snorted but can be smoked, known as “freebasing,” or injected directly into the bloodstream. When cocaine is heated and processed, it becomes crack cocaine, which is often smoked. It is a highly addictive substance with a relatively short “high” life span, typically lasting from 15 to 30 minutes. Even so, nearly 1,800 Americans experiment with this drug daily.
One of the most significant signs of addiction to this highly addictive drug is a person who is ignoring the consequences that follow frequent use due.
