Crack cocaine is perhaps the most addictive substance known to man. This drug has caused mass social upheaval amongst communities throughout the United Kingdom. Crack cocaine addiction is usually associated with criminality such as theft, property damage and violence. The drug itself is sold in small quantities and it is usually consumed by smoking. Because crack cocaine is smoked it is able to reach the bloodstream and hence brain much quicker than its powdered counterpart.
