Russian designer drug Krokodil will eat your flesh
When you guys read the headline, you probably said to yourself, “What the @uck!” Well, it’s true, some Russian drug out there by the name of Krokodil can actually eat your flesh. Krokodil is a substitute drug for heroin concocted with desomorphine, which is 8-10 times more potent than morphine. When users abuse the drug overtime, weird things start happening like rotting of the flesh, which causes the skin to emulate that of a crocodile, leaving bone and muscle tissue exposed for all to see — yummy! Once someone becomes addicted to this crap, it is common for the individual to die within two-three years of heavy use from exposure and associated health issues, with many dying within a year.
Now this is totally new to me, but apparently, disturbing YouTube videos coming out of Russia displaying the aftereffects of Krokodil use have been available for months. The videos show gangrene, exposed bones, and scale-like skin that lent the drug its name. This all sounds like what you’ll see on Fox’s show Bones, but unlike the show this shit is real. Forget the slogan: “Crack is Wack” Krokodil can kill.
