Cocaine

How is it used

There are three different types of cocaine. Each used differently.

Cocaine Hydrochloride:

This is a white powder, most common in Australia. In this form it is sniffed through the nose (snorted) or injected. It cannot be smoked because burning destroys it.

Freebase cocaine:

This is a chemically altered type of cocaine (alkaloidal cocaine). It can be smoked and this makes the user feel high quickly.

Crack Cocaine:

Crack is a type of freebase cocaine sold in the form of small crystals or rocks. It is usually smoked. Crack is rare in Australia at this stage.

People who sell cocaine often mix or cut the powder with other things that look the same to make the drug go further. Some mixed-in substances can have unpleasant or harmful effects. It is difficult to tell what the drug actually contains.
