Krokodil: The most horrible drug imaginable!
WARNING: Pictures and Videos below are extremely disturbing and graphic!
I came across information about a drug called Krokodil online and was so shocked by it, I decided to spread the word!
Since 2011 Russia has become the worlds biggest consumer of heroin.
Nowhere is Russia’s drug problem more evident than in Siberia
Krokodil attracted attention in Russia in recent years and is gaining popularity in Siberia. It is easily made from codeine, iodine and red phosphorus. It is many times more powerful that heroin.
Krokodil takes roughly 30 minutes to prepare with over the counter ingredients in a kitchen.
Basically this drug is being used in Russia instead of heroin, because of the difficulty and high cost of heroin. The effects of Heroin use lasts four to eight hours while Krokodil usually does extend one and a half hours.
The street name Krokodil is due to the scale-like appearance of skin, which turns dry and eventually rots right off their bodies of its users and the derivation from chlorocodide.
Krokodil is injected with little or no purification and therefore it has become notorious for producing severe tissue damage, phlebitis and gangrene.
Even most heroin users are frightened by Krokodil and want nothing to do with this terrifying drug.
The eye drops that are mixed with the Krokodil are called Tropikamid. This is the main ingredient in Krokodil.
It has been found to strengthen the effects of Krokodil especially when you have just injected the drug. It severely destroys inner organs; the liver, kidneys and heart are affected.
I cannot get my head around how anyone could possibly do this to themselves!!!
