Want your flesh eaten? Then take the new narcotic known as "Krokodil," or crocodile.
Krokodil first emerged in Russia more than a decade ago. Krokodil made its first appearance in the United States in Arizona recently.
The cheap and highly addictive opiate is typically prepared in an injectable form by cooking up codeine with caustic chemicals including hydrochloric acid and turpentine, which rot the flesh, leaving bone and muscle tissue exposed.
Krokodil is as addictive as heroin but it is much, much cheaper. You get much more bang for your buck!
What is catastrophic is what happens to your skin and your insides. It dissolves people's fat and dissolves people's muscle tissue. Could this be the next fat loss pill? ;-)
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration does not include Krokodil among its online list of drugs of abuse, which includes cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana. So is it legal? Interesting...
