Both very addicting: Since "crack" Cocaine is smoked, it gets into the system faster than snorting the powder. The faster it gets into brain, the more intense the high. The speed of smoking crack is about equal to speed of IV injection -- lung vasculature is vast. Also the intensity of crack's high passes more quickly than snorting -- leading to more and more doses to maintain the high. Huge addictiveness with each.
