History of the Drug

History of the drug: the use of this drug can date back to three thousand years ago, crack cocaine was developed during the cocaine boom of the 1970’s. It got really popular and began to spread around everywhere in the mid 1980’s. In the late 1970’s, there was a ship that got caught by the police carrying a lot of cocaine powder in it. With this happening, this caused the original price of the drug to drop by 80%, since they had no other choice but to drop the prices for their illegal product.
