Crack cocaine is readily available in the larger metropolitan area of Phoenix due to the many organizations involved in crack cocaine trafficking who operate in that area. Crack cocaine or "crack" as it is called on the street, is a solid, smokable form of cocaine that is made during a process used to convert powder cocaine into freebase cocaine. Crack cocaine is a more potent form of cocaine and is stronger and more addictive than the powder form.
