How is cocaine used?There are four primary methods of ingesting cocaine. These are - 1. "Snorting" - absorbing cocaine through the mucous membranes of the nose. 2. Injecting - users mix cocaine powder with water and use a syringe to inject the solution intravenously. 3. Freebasing - Cocaine hydrochloride is converted to a "freebase" which can then be smoked. 4. Crack Cocaine - Cocaine hydrochloride is mixed with ammonia or sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and other ingredients, causing it to solidify into pellets or "rocks". The crack is then smoked in glass pipes.
