Russia’s Synthetic Drug Epidemic

The attached photo and video was passed on to us from an anonymous rogue DEA agent. Although in Russian, one can see a visual depiction of Krokodil’s effects.

Graphic image warning!

The drug that (literally) eats junkies

Assessment

Apparently the life expectancy of users of the drug is 2-3 years. We would not be surprised to see it show up in the USA very soon

    Just as new concerns are raised about “crock” and other synthetic drugs – bath salts arrive.

  3. Krokodil Drug–Flesh Eating Heroin Substitute

    ——————————————————————————–

    I was looking around the internet at disgusting medical photos (hey, they interest me, what can I say?) and I came across one of a man in Russia who’s flesh was rotting off due to a drug called Krokodil.

    After a while, I forgot about this, until my fiance came home and told me that a guy he works with told him to look it up online.

    So we looked it up (more than just photos this time) and I had to laugh. Most people who use this stuff end up dying within 1-2 years.

    This drug, desomorphine, aka Krokodil, has been labeled “the drug that eats junkies”.
    It is a mixture of codeine, gasoline, hydrochloric acid, phosphorous, and several other chemicals. For part of the price of heroin these people are injecting something that is more addictive and leaves any survivor permanently disfigured.

    This **** literally eats at your tissue until there is nothing left. Most users don’t die of overdoses, but from infection to tissue and continuous tissue necrosis.

    I could not help but laugh when I read all this. In both my opinion and my fiances opinion, this is exactly what those people deserve, and a great way to weed them out.

    Toxicologists in Phoenix say they have been consulted on a ‘handful of cases’ of patients suspected of abusing the homemade narcotic ‘Krokodil,’ or crocodile.

  7. On Krokodil

    Well, I see you have a heart for all humans!

    I do not know IF you know this but many people are born with addictive personality’s and don’t know how to stop until one they hit bottom or they learn how to change the behavior; or both.

    When you say this is what THEY deserve … it is like wishing a person with cancer a long death!

  8. Flesh-eating drug makes appearance in Chicago suburb

    The flesh-eating drug that became popular in Russia, in the ME-P above, has made its way across the ocean and to a Chicago suburb.

    http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/10/10/20898572-flesh-eating-drug-makes-appearance-in-chicago-suburb?lite

    According to this article, Dr. Abhin Singla of Presence St. Joseph Medical Center said the Joliet, Ill., facility just treated three patients who said they used the drug known as “krokodil.”

    The substance is similar to morphine and possesses some of the same properties as methamphetamine.

    However, it’s cheaper to obtain, and like meth, users can make it with codeine and everyday products such as gasoline and paint thinner.

  9. On Krokodil

    I can understand that some people are born with an addictive personality.

    However, what kind of idiot decides to pick up a needle and inject themselves with a gasoline concoction. Its natural selection at its best – if you ask me.

  11. On Krokodil’s ME-P Comments

    I hope none of your family members become addicts. I am pretty sure you wouldn’t say “that’s what they get!” It weeds them out!”

    What assholes you are!
