how can I tell if it's crack cocaine?

Help! My son is supposed to be getting clean and is in group therapy, on antidepressants, and sees a psychiatrist. I found some off-white crumbly/flakey stuff on the car seat today. My son was the last one to drive the car. I saved the substance. My gut is telling me that it's crack. How can I tell if it is? He played dumb when I asked him about it. There was beer in the car as well. Of course he said it belongs to his friend. Right. Is there any home test I can do on this substance? Thanks!

Hey,

Just have him tested. Go to your local drug store and by a urine drug test.

Thanks loopman. I kinda wanted to know for sure what it is before I get in his face about it.....there's no way to test it at home? I saw photos of crack online. It looks like it.

skb,

Actually you can take the powdery stuff you found to the drugstore and ask them to identify it for you. That would be more regulated as his urine may be clean since it's been a while, and if he thinks your on to him, he may not have used in while.

I would not take anything into the store.
If it is crack you could be arrested.

I would taste it, if it makes your mouth numb, then it is crack.
