Can you snort crack cocaine?

Snorting cocaine is common, but I know crack cocaine is not the same as cocaine... People usually smoke crack, but is it possible to snort crack?

Though the cocaine epidemic has slowed since the 1980's, many people still struggle with cocaine and crack addictions. Cocaine is most commonly snorted (inhaled) in "lines", but users can also inject or smoke it. Crack is most commonly smoked, using a crack pipe or by freebasing. Cocaine is a stimulant and an anesthetic. It was traditionally used in dental practices because of its ability to numb the mouth for short periods of time. Cocaine bought on the street may not always be pure and runs the risk of being laced with mystery substances like baking soda.

Cocaine (benzoylmethylecgonine) is a stimulant drug produced from the coca plant, most commonly available in fine white powder or crushable clumps, called "rocks".

Many crack cocaine abusers and addicts attempt to ingest crack cocaine in a variety of methods.


Crack Cocaine

Though crack cocaine is manufactured from pure cocaine, it is commonly cut with cheap fillers like baking soda and impure methamphetamine.

No. Snorting crack cocaine can result in a quick death and will surely not produce the same effects as it would if it was smoked. Someone once said to me, "snorting crack is kinda like snorting tobacco, you'd have to be double the idiot to do it like that." Crack is cooked cocaine (plus baking soda and other fillers), which causes the substance to lose much of its ability to be absorbed into your bloodstream. If your considering snorting crack, or even smoking it in that case, get some professional help. Drug rehab may be best for you.


Please realize that crack cocaine is different than cocaine. See What is the difference between Crack and Cocaine? on for more details.
