Information on Crack Cocaine and Possession Charges Crack

Crack cocaine, commonly known as simply "crack," is a highly addictive form of cocaine. In fact, crack is considered to be the most addictive form of cocaine. Crack causes a release of dopamine in the brain, which causes a feeling of euphoria; however, this feeling only lasts about 5-10 minutes. When people smoke more to try to attain that feeling again, it is usually less intense, as the time it takes for your brain to replenish its levels of dopamine. This could be the underlying cause for the likelihood of addiction to the substance.
