Crack/Cocaine question

Discussion in 'General' started by anarkin, Aug 11, 2006.


  1. Your right, crack usually comes in white, or off-white(if it was cooked a tad too long). Sometimes even yellow, though I have seen coke before


    and The difference between crack and coke is this;

    Coke is the powder, VERY water soulable(sp?) and is snorted or injected.

    Crack is cooked with baking soda, to form a hard NON-water soulable rock, which is smoked.


    So basically crack is just smokeable coke, but as I stated before the effects do feel different
     
  2. stay clean
    stay green my friend


    only advice i can give to you
     
  3. CRACK: Coke cooked with baking soda. Possibly cut with other things, but doubtful.

    Since no one in this thread has hit it on the head yet.

    Due to the dangers of using ether to produce pure freebase cocaine, cocaine producers began to omit the step of removing the freebase cocaine precipitate from the ammonia mixture. Typically, filtration processes are also omitted. The end result of this process is that the cut, in addition to the ammonium salt (NH4Cl), remains in the freebase cocaine after the mixture is evaporated. The “rock” that is thus formed also contains a small amount of water. Sodium bicarbonate is also preferred in preparing the freebase, for when commonly "cooked" the ratio is 50/50 to 40/60 percent cocaine/bicarbonate. This acts as a filler which extends the overall profitability of illicit sales. Crack cocaine may be reprocessed in small quantities with water (users refer to the resultant product as "cookback"). This removes the residual bicarbonate, and any adulterants or cuts that have been used in the previous handling of the cocaine and leaves a relatively pure, anhydrous cocaine base.

    When the rock is heated, this water boils, making a crackling sound (hence the onomatopoeic “crack”). Baking soda is now most often used as a base rather than ammonia for reasons of lowered stench and toxicity; however, any weak base can be used to make crack cocaine. Strong bases, such as sodium hydroxide, tend to hydrolyze some of the cocaine into non-psychoactive ecgonine.

    The net reaction when using baking soda (also called sodium bicarbonate, with a chemical formula of NaHCO3) is:
    Coc-H+Cl– + NaHCO3 → Coc + H2O + CO2 + NaCl

    Crack is unique because it offers a strong cocaine experience in small, low-priced packages. In the United States, crack cocaine is often sold in small, inexpensive dosage units frequently known as “nickels”, “nickel rocks”, or "bumps" (referring to the price of $5.00), and also “dimes”, “dime rocks”, or "boulders" and sometimes as “twenties”, “solids", "slabs" and “forties.” The quantity provided by such a purchase varies depending upon many factors, such as local availability, which is affected by geographic location. A twenty may yield a quarter gram or half gram on average, yielding 30 minutes to an hour of effect if hits are taken every few minutes. After the $20 or $40 mark, crack and powder cocaine are sold in grams or fractions of ounces. Many inner-city addicts with a regular dealer will “work a corner,” taking money from anyone who wants crack, making a buy from the dealer, then delivering part of the product while keeping some for themselves.

    At the intermediate level, crack cocaine is sold either by weight in ounces, referred to by terms such as "eight-ball" (one-eighth of an ounce) or "quarter" and "half" respectively. In the alternate, $20 pieces of crack cocaine are aggregated in units of "fifty pack" and "hundred pack", referring to the number of pieces. At this level, the wholesale price is approximately half the street sale price.

    Crack cocaine was extremely popular in the mid- and late 1980s, especially in inner cities, though its popularity declined through the 1990s in the United States. However, there has been a increase in popularity within Canada in the recent years, where it has been estimated that the drug has become a multi-billion dollar 'industry'. Due to its popularity, there are many different street names for crack cocaine.
     
  6. Okay I have some.

    Lets see......first off I heard crack looks like butter. Is that true?

    Do you just smoke it? Or are there other ways to get high with it?

    Not that I plan on doing either, I love my teeth and face too much to do that to them lol. :p

  8. like KSR said its got a butter like color but thats only if its cooked improperly, toomany chemicals in the coke could lead to a more yellow like color when cooked.

    you smoke it... altho there are a few people that i kno of that have actually grinded it and snorted it... doesnt reallie get u that high that way more of just a bad burning sensation in the nose and throat.

    any more q's
     
  9. all i have to say is dont do crack. i did coke for a very long time and not even coke is worth it your just going to melt your brain but i guess youll learn your lesson yourself
     
  10. Hey,

    I like to think about it this way: "Coke ruins my nose, Crack turns my teeth black".

    Maybe that'll help...or not.

    Peace.
