Cocaine and Crack by Krista West, Ronald J. Brogan


Cocaine and Crack by Krista West, Ronald J. Brogan

The popular drug of choice in the 1980s and '90s, cocaine is an illegal drug that can prove dangerous - even deadly - for users, especially in its impure form, crack. Yet, pure cocaine has been used as an energy booster and pain reliever for thousands of years. Cocaine and Crack examines the global history, chemistry, industry, and control of cocaine in the United States.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
