What is the difference between cocaine and crack? Besides how it is ingested ?

Interesting to note that El DeBarge greeted and hugged Whitney 2 nts before her death..and although he's off the hook for felony drug charge..the recent incident from the known drug addict and friend of Whitney's, cir***stance was shady with rock cocaine found in the area...hmmm

"Cocaine and metabolites were identified and were contributory to the death. Marijuana, Alprazolam (Xanax), Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) and Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) were identified but did not contribute to the death."

I agree with what Justin Bieber said!! The do***entary movie "Bully" should be rated pg-13. It has a strong message that needs to be shown to these young teenagers! So what if theres a few curse words, im sure these 13 year old teenagers have heard swear words every day at school already, damn, they are probably the ones swearing at school!!

Once a movie gets rated, the producers and directors can go back and review the rating and adjust things appropriately. There is a certain threshold for rated R movies and everyone in the industry knows what it is - I think its something like 2 F-words? The director and editors could have simply edited out 4 of the F-bombs if they were so concerned about getting a PG 13 rating! This isn't a matter of what is better or worse for kids to see - it's just the rules established by the MPAA. And that's what Eli Roth was trying to get across yesterday, as well.
