Abuse of crack cocaine poses a serious threat to the state of Maryland because it rather gives a “high” very easily when it is smoked, injected or snorted. In the year 2005 alone 9.8% of the total population of Maryland was suffering from cocaine crack addiction. That crack cocaine is more popular than cocaine is evident from the fact that in the year 2005, of the total admissions that took place for the treatment of drugs and alcohol abuse, 1815 were for cocaine abuse whereas 6509 people got admitted for crack cocaine abuse.
Cocaine crack addiction is more of a threat on the eastern shores and the western part of Maryland. Since this form of cocaine is made using baking soda or ammonia, it is relatively low priced. It has also been noted that a person gets addicted to this from the first usage itself resulting in the person becoming paranoid about something bad happening. The side effects of this addiction range from respiratory failure to strokes and heart attacks and even infertility. Since there is a physical dependence on this drug, the withdrawal symptoms are very difficult to endure and hence should be done in a good treatment center the details of which can be got from the vast collection of treatment centers registered in our web directory.
