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

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

  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.



  4. Synthetic Drug Labs Raided

    In the first-ever nationwide crackdown on the synthetic drug industry, law enforcement officers just arrested more than 90 people, seized $36 million in cash and more than 4.8 million packets of synthetic cannabinoids.

  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.

    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!

  12. Naloxone prices rising!

    This year, police departments across the country, including in New York City, announced plans to stock up on a medication that reverses the effects of a heroin or opioid painkiller overdose.

    But public health officials are facing sticker shock: Prices for a popular form of the medication, naloxone, are spiking, in some cases by 50 percent or more.

    Maybe Cyber Monday sales will help?



  13. What is KRATOM

    According to Wikipedia; Mitragyna speciosa (ketum,[2] kratom or kratum,[3] Thai: กระท่อม) is a tropical deciduous and evergreen tree in the coffee family (Rubiaceae) native to Southeast Asia in the Indochina and Malesia floristic regions. Its leaves are used for medicinal properties. It is psychoactive, and leaves are chewed to uplift mood and to treat health problems.[4] M. speciosa is indigenous to Thailand and, despite growing naturally in the country, has been outlawed for 70 years and was originally banned because it was reducing the Thai government’s tax revenue from opium distribution.[4]

    Kratom behaves as a μ-opioid receptor agonist like morphine[5] and is used in the management of chronic pain, as well as recreationally.[6] Kratom use is not detected by typical drug screening tests, but its metabolites can be detected by more specialized testing.[7][8] The pharmacological effects of kratom on humans, including its efficacy and safety, are not well-studied.[5] Most side effects of kratom are thought to be mild, although isolated serious adverse effects such as psychosis, convulsions, hallucinations, and confusion have been reported rarely.[4] There has been a reported case in which chronic use of M. speciosa was associated with bowel obstruction, as well as anecdotal reports stating that the plant carries the potential for addiction and can lead to withdrawal symptoms.[4]

    There have been case reports that document deaths involving individuals who have combined kratom with other drugs or substances, but kratom itself has not been identified to be cause of death in any of these cases.[9][10][11]
