Best Answer

1) Cocaine contains a lot of powerful, acidic chemicals. Since crack cocaine is smoked, the harmful chemical compounds of the drug come in direct contact with the teeth and gums. Prolonged use can result in damage to the enamel, bone and nerve endings which weakens or kills the tooth resulting in broken or dead teeth. There is no way to prevent this except by abstaining from use.

2) The burning crack pipe doesn't help either

3) It doesn't. Bad oral hygeine caused by people not taking care of themselves while they are addicts is what causes the teeth to fall out. If cocaine is rubbed on the gums, it may contribute to the problem, but it is not usually used that way.

What is the difference between freebase cocaine and crack cocaine?

Normal cocaine (Cocaine Hydrochloride) is the typical white powder people snort. This form is a water soluble salt of the cocaine free base and the HCl. This form also vaporizes at a temperature very close to the temperature at which it burns, making it difficult to smoke. Crack cocaine is a cheap yet inefficient method of freeing the base cocaine molecule from the salt. It uses baking soda to remove the proton from the base. However, this safe, cheap method does not involve any purification steps, leaving some water and baking soda (impurity) along with the newly formed "crack" which forms crystals and floats to the top. So freebase cocaine along with other impurites are what make up crack cocaine. Freebase cocain is formed by a similar process. However, ammonia is used to remove the proton and free the cocaine base. Diethyl ether (extremely flammable and volatile) is used to dissolve and remove the freebase cocaine. This can simply be siphoned off the top since ethyl ether does not mix with the water/ammonia solution. The Diethyl Ether evaporates and pure freebase cocaine is left behind. The straight forward answer is that there is absolutely no difference between crack and cocaine base, because crack is a street name or nick for cocaine base. The uses and effects are 100% identical. So the next question is why is there a higher penalty for crack than cocaine base. The straight forward answer is our Legislative, Executive and Judicial branch has engaged in racial discrimination when charging black americans, which is what we call the new form of the Jim Crow Law. Whites who are charged with cocaine base don't get the aka crack added to their indictment and therefore since 1914 the federal statute continues to treat cocaine hydrochloride (snortable) the same as cocaine base (smokable) , whites therefore receive a lesser prison sentence. Black Americans on the other hand get the aka crack included in their indictment therefore receiving excessively long prison sentences. Example a white person who is charged with 5 grams of cocaine base would get a 6 to 12 months sentence the same sentence 5 gram cocaine powder would provide 'a misdemeanor'. While the black individual who possess the same quantity would receive, a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years which is a felony for a substance that is identical to the substance a white person possessed, the only difference is the aka crack term used in the indcitment to described the cocaine base possessed by the black defendant. So a fact, which is undissputable, crack does not physically or scientifically exist because no scientifically test exists that would differientiate cocaine base as being crack remember it is a street term, the test only results in cocaine base. Therefore crack is a nick name for cocaine base. Crack and cocaine base are the same thing, the only difference is what race you are and the sentence imposed, because of your race.

How butane effects humans when smoking crack?

Well it effects the high butane smells and taste like crap,ya want to use a pack of matches instead Crack is made of what is left from the process of transform coca leaves in cocaine, the most harmful part, witch is disposable, that's what everybody knows in South America where I came from. Now they mix this very harmful left over with even more harmful ingredients and make the crack, but unfortunately the truth is a taboo in USA, and many think that cocaine and crack ARE THE SAME. There is more about the truth, crack will kill in a period of two years and will make anyone addicted to it at the very first time, the brain will get hooked right away. Too bad we still hear that cocaine and crack are the same.
