Crime Related to Crack Cocaine

Crack cocaine is responsible for a myriad of social ills, such as the breakdown of families and communities, as well as an increase in drug related crime. This is why Cocaine Rehab is devoted to ridding the world of addiction to drugs and alcohol.

Crack Cocaine Abuse and Crime

Crack cocaine is the direct and indirect cause of violence and crime in many cities across the US. In the Texas city of Houston, attacks, carjackings, residential burglaries, shootings, and other crimes of this nature are carried out by gangs who deal in the sale and distribution of crack cocaine.  Crack cocaine addicts also commit burglaries and other crimes to fuel their habits.

In 2005 and 2006 violence noticeably rose in Houston.  The F.B.I. attributes this rise to Hurricane Katrina.  They say the tragedy in New Orleans caused a number of people to move to move to the Houston area.  Among these people were gang members, traffickers of drugs, and drug addicts.  As a result, crime increased in Houston, particularly crime related to crack cocaine.  The gangs from New Orleans showed up in full force and worked quickly to terrorize the Houston gangs.  As a result, crime relating to gang activity has greatly increased.

The reason Houston is such a big market for crack cocaine is because there are a lot of users in that area.  The reason why there is a great deal of users there is because cocaine seems to be easily trafficked across the border from neighboring Mexico.  In the early 2000s, in just a three year span, the amount of people being admitted into treatment in Texas increased nearly forty percent.  More specifically, the amount of people being treated for cocaine in Texas more than doubled during that time.  During this same time frame (2003 to 2005), deaths related to cocaine without any other drug present in the blood stream rose almost 60%.
