I've seen plenty of people snorting coke. They show no propensity for violence or demonstrate an urgent need to score another immediate hit.
The concept of Coke Whore never seemed to catch on.
Crack has different physiological effects, becuase it's lower vaporization temperature compared to coke allows it to hit the brain faster.
You want to pretend there's no difference between crack and coke?
Be my guest.
My own personal opinion is that there's no extant constitutional authority allowing the federal government to regulate substances. Some damn fool wants to poison themselves for fun, let them.
But, since crack and coke DO create different responses in those who consume them, it's disingenous to claim racism is the cause for the different treatment.
But here's a suggestion. Let's pretend you're right. to make things equal, let's have a moratorium on crack possession until as many white boys on coke have been jailed as blacks.
But I don't want to hear one damned word from the fools pretending crack is racist that the inner cities are now being destroyed by the drug wars that are guaranteed to ensue.
