Man leaning next to wall

Cocaine and crack cocaine are illegal pretty much everywhere on the planet — and for good reason. They are highly addictive and can lead to a number of health issues, to say nothing of the disruptions to normal social relationships, home life, and work. Consequently, the people who traffic and sell these drugs have come up with literally hundreds of names to help cover up their illegal trade. In today’s guide, we will provide a comprehensive list of the most common slang terms for cocaine and crack cocaine so that you can know if someone you care about is involved in illegal, addictive, or harmful activities.

Why You Need To Know Slang For Cocaine

It may seem strange to want to know cocaine nicknames, but if you believe that a friend or family member might be abusing drugs, then it is vitally important to know the signs. One of the most common ways to figure out if your loved one might be abusing drugs is to learn about common cocaine street names and cocaine slang names that are used by dealers and distributors. If you hear your loved one using one of these terms in a strange way, it could be a sign that they are involved in illicit activities.

In addition to saving your loved ones from potential legal consequences, you will also want to take care of their health. Addiction is a vicious condition that can rob your friend or family member of their mental and physical health. In extreme cases, they could even overdose and lose their life. So, learning as much as you can about the warning signs and names for these harmful drugs is the first step toward getting someone you care about the help that they need.

Most Common Slang For Crack Cocaine

If you’re unfamiliar with the differences between the two, crack cocaine is essentially a cheaper form of cocaine that is often combined with baking soda, water, and other chemicals. Additionally, crack cocaine is typically smoked, while traditional cocaine is usually inhaled through the nose. However, crack cocaine is significantly more dangerous for a number of reasons.

First and foremost, crack cocaine is often combined with a variety of substances to ensure that it is cheaper than pure cocaine. Consequently, it is easier for people to buy crack cocaine and repeatedly abuse it. Additionally, the effects last for a shorter time and are more intense than cocaine, which can lead to dangerous cycles of bingeing and crashing. People who even experiment with crack cocaine are far more likely to build a physical dependence and addiction than those who experiment with cocaine.

Either way, it’s best to ensure that your loved ones are not abusing either one of these drugs. So, here is a comprehensive list of the street names used to refer to crack cocaine. Many of these names are purposefully bizarre and misleading to help drug dealers avoid interference from law enforcement, but they are common nonetheless:

How To Get Help For a Loved One With a Cocaine Addiction

The discovery that a loved one is suffering from cocaine or crack cocaine addiction can be devastating. It is especially difficult since, in most cases, the person in question will attempt to hide their addiction from you. This is why it is so important to learn the terminology and look for signs of cocaine addiction.

Though crack and cocaine addiction symptoms can vary (especially since the two drugs are often consumed in different ways), here are a few of the most common signs that someone in your life is abusing one or both of these drugs:

  • Dilated pupils
  • Unnaturally energetic behavior
  • Erratic movements
  • Fast and excited talking
  • Strange thought patterns
  • Teeth grinding
  • Mood swings
  • Social isolation
  • Unexpected financial issues
  • Burn marks on the lips or fingers
  • Increased confidence
  • Nose bleeds
  • Runny nose
  • Sudden changes in eating or sleeping patterns
  • White residue near the mouth or nostrils
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia

If you find that someone in your life is abusing cocaine or crack cocaine, you should not hesitate to consider some form of drug rehab.
