Flesh-rotting 'krokodil' drug emerges in USA - USA Today

The deadly heroin-like drug that rots flesh has been linked to two cases in Arizona in the last week. The powerfully addicting drug originated in 2002 in Siberia and has swept Russia in the past three years. The drug became popular as a cheap substitute for heroin.
Flesh-rotting 'krokodil' drug emerges in USA

A potentially lethal, flesh-eating narcotic compound is catching on in parts of Arizona. Users inject the drug to get high, and the scaly, rotten patches of necrotic flesh it can leave behind have led to the drug being named “krokodil” by its Russian originators, the word for “crocodile.”

Krokodil originated in Russia’s remote Siberia region, where heroin addicts who found it difficult to obtain a regular supply of real heroin synthesized the drug out of codeine-laced headache pills, iodine, red phosphorus and paint thinner.


Yeah, I would think it a bad idea to inject that.

How did it show up in AZ. did Drug Cartels armed by Obama send the drug here on the backs of Illegals?

not an accusation. just a Rhetorical Question.

The problem with this drug is that it is deadly like this only because of shit-tier synthesizing, cutting corners to get the product out cheaply.

You'd almost think it was done this way specifically so junkies would die.

Why would I?

It's basic degeneracy and anyone who uses it deserves whatever fate they get.

You had to inject Obama here ... pun intended.

Now think objectively, with a brain not addled with OHS, for a moment.

What possible sense can it make for a seller to market a product that kills customers?

Please get back to me on that.
Thanks from intangible child

Unfortunately, it has been shown often that one usually isn't wrong betting on the stupidity of the average person. And when that is moved to the intelligence of the average addict, it becomes an even better bet. So I'll admit that the big boys probably wouldn't dive into this, but there is still some easy money to be made for some small-scale entrepreneurs.
