Cocaine is an extremely addictive stimulant drug. It’s a white, fine, crystal powder. It is snorted or rubbed into people’s gums. It can also be dissolved and injected, or injected in combination with heroin, called a “Speedball”. Another popular method is to smoke “crack” cocaine. Sometimes street dealers mix other drugs into cocaine such as amphetamine or fentanyl. This is extremely dangerous for people using cocaine who don’t realize it contains fentanyl. As there’s been an increase in overdose deaths among cocaine users that may be attributed to the addition of fentanyl.
Methamphetamine is an extremely powerful and addictive stimulant that impacts the central nervous system. It’s usually a white powder, but crystal meth looks like glass fragments or shiny, bluish-white rocks. It can be smoked, swallowed as a pill, snorted, or injected. Fentanyl is sometimes added to the methamphetamine without the user knowing.
