The use of cocaine in powder and rock (crack) form is prevalent in today’s society. Cocaine powder use is viewed as serious, but less serious than the use of “crack” due to the addictive potential of crack cocaine. Some would argue that there is no such thing as the recreational crack user.
A person charged with possession of cocaine may be eligible for drug diversion in exceptional circumstances. More often, it can be an uphill battle to obtain a “discharge” for such clients, but it can be accomplished if the allegation is handled properly by a skilled criminal lawyer.
