Parents please be aware there is a newer drug coming to a city near you. Cheaper than heroine and utilizes some house hold items and taking lives in the process.
Krokodil or Desomorphine Krokodil is a mixture of Codeine, red phosphorus, iodine, alcohol, paint thinner, caffeine, paracetamol, gasoline, diphenhydramine, lighter fluid, tropicamide, industrial cleaners, hydrochloric acid, and some other household everyday acidic chemicals. When injected into the body, it gives the user a high that is 5 times stronger than Heroine and Codeine. The process to cook it is similar to that of Meth or Heroine. Typically the drug is injected into the groin, legs and arms.
Early warning signs:
The skin turns black or red around the spot where the needle was injected. The skin turns scaly as Gangrene sets in. Hence giving the drug its name….Krokodil. The blood vessels, thyroid, muscle, bone, cartilage start to deteriorate, close off, peel and become open irreparable wounds. It also leads to organ failure. Infection of the lungs, brain, heart and spine begin to set in. Usually amputation is suggested to attempt to “save” the rest of the body…
It really doesn’t matter from the first time you inject this drug into your body, you have literally signed your death certificate. Life expectancy after its use is typically 18 -24 months with amputation. Alot of times its a shorter span.
