Of superior excellence or ability
Street name for a chemical derivative (bicarbonate) of cocaine in hard, crystalline lumps; it is heated and inhaled (smoked) as a stimulant. Crack was first used in San Francisco in the early 1980s, and is highly addictive.
Its use has led to numerous deaths but it is the fastest-growing sector of the illegal drug trade, since it is less expensive than cocaine.
