Flesh-Eating Street Drug from Russia Hits the US (Krokodil)

Flesh-Eating Street Drug from Russia Hits the US (Krokodil)

Lose 20lbs In 3 Weeks http://tinyurl.com/z8ahs7j A flesh-eating drug has appeared in the United States after first being discovered in Russia a decade ago. Krokodil, Russian for "crocodile," is a street drug used as a cheap substitute for heroin. The drug is referred to as "krokodil" because it causes sores, tissue damage and rough, scale-like appearance on the skin. Two cases involving the drug that surfaced at the Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix are alarming anti-drug advocates and medical personnel who fear use of krokodil might spread. When the facility warned other poison centers around the country about krokodil, some revealed they also had patients suffering from its apparent use, according to Dr. Frank LoVecchio, co-medical director at Banner Poison, Drug and Information Center. "This is up there as one of the craziest new trends I've seen," he said. "We've known about it in Russia, and we've known what it has done there. It's really decimated whole cities there." Krokodil is made up of several ingredients easily accessed at home improvement stores and pharmacies. The base of the drug is usually codeine. Pure codeine is extracted from its pill form and adulterated with chemicals to create a liquid substance that is later injected into the veins. The types of chemicals used by manufacturers vary. "Some of the chemicals they've used are very dangerous," LoVecchio said. "They've used things like hydrochloric acid. Some have used paint thinners, gasoline and other stuff that includes phosphorous." The acidity of the chemicals causes the body's fat and skin to "burn off and die," LoVecchio said. The presence of chemicals also makes the body more prone to infection. Immediate effects include visible scarring on the skin. Long-term effects are much worse. "Once you start using this drug on a daily basis, you could die within two years," he said. "Other reports are that death is probably due to overwhelming infection. Your body can't fight the infection." Leslie Bloom, CEO of DrugFreeAZ.org, said that despite the drug's dire consequences, krokodil use is not an outbreak to be fearful of. "We don't want the public to be alarmed," she said. "What we want them to be is aware that this is a trend. There are other drug trends, too, that we see from time to time, especially with the synthetic drugs. This is a good reminder and a teaching moment." According to Tommy Thompson, public information officer for the Phoenix Police Department, there are currently no existing arrests or law enforcement cases involving krokodil.

Shocking Before-And-After Drug Use Photos

Top 10 most disturbing transformation photos of people that were addicted to narcotics. Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg Other Videos You Might Like 10 Horrible Plastic Surgery Impersonations https://youtu.be/dumsWFVTc-k 10 Women You Won't Believe Exist! https://youtu.be/c5SKuiMrEHw Description: It’s hard to think of any drug prevention strategy more effective than simply being exposed to a real drug addict. Witnessing the degradation and deterioration of a drug abuser whose addiction has taken its toll offers a first-hand perspective on just how powerless certain people are against the potent sway of heavy drugs, not to mention the toll that they take on the body. In 2014, drug treatment assistance website Rehabs.com put together a graphic, stunning compilation of photos that captured the physical regression of chronic drug abusers through their head shots. This rather pointed effort, which gathered the mug shots of those arrested multiple times for drug- and/or drug-related offenses, served to highlight the potentially catastrophic health effects of drug abuse in a raw, visceral and impactful manner. Physical changes seen through these images include skin lesions, decayed or missing teeth, open sores and premature aging, among other noticeable symptoms. It is important to note that not all of the deterioration and facial change seen within these people is necessarily the cause of drug use, but illicit substances have surely assumed at least some responsibility for the visible toll taken on these 10 individuals. The Rehabs.com webpage aimed to serve as a source of education and inspiration, not only for those who came upon it but also for the addicts featured on the site. Lest anyone feel that the images are being used to shame, embarrass or exploit those in need of help, the website includes a disclaimer that not only invites users to request the removal of their photo, but also offers financial assistance for those seeking treatment. It also acknowledges that the images shown represent only the most extreme cases of drug abuse, but makes sure to mention that those featured in the images likely never anticipated such a slippery slope towards extreme addiction. The statistics on drug abuse are pretty stunning. In 2013, over 24 million people reported that they had taken illicit drugs or abused prescription medication in just the past month alone. One year earlier, more than 1.7 million people had been admitted into treatment programs for substance abuse. While certainly representing a staggering number, that doesn’t address the vast majority of drug users in need of help. And although statistics can be impactful in their own right, the personal cost of drug abuse is probably best represented in the faces of those most affected by it. Different drugs carry their own common side effects. Meth is known to cause facial wasting and open sores, cocaine can be an appetite suppressant and lead to weight loss, ecstasy often causes teeth grinding and even marijuana can age and pale the skin over time with excessive use. But even more than the symptoms of any one drug, the most damaging impact of substance abuse might be the mental side of the addiction, where recreating that high becomes a driving force in the addict’s life and leads to self-neglect. These 10 addicts wear the heavy cost of their drug abuse on their faces, plain for anyone to see.

10 HORRIBLE Effects of Krokodile

10 HORRIBLE Effects of  Krokodile

There are highly destructive drugs in the world, but none approaches the level of addictiveness and physical destruction of desomorphine. In Russia, this drug is known as krokodil, because it makes some users’ flesh turn green and rough, like a crocodile’s skin. The drug is derived from an over-the-counter cough medication that contains codeine. This pill is processed at home using readily-available chemicals and solvents, employing a process similar to that of cooking methamphetamine. The result of this process is injected. Addiction often occurs after just one use. Recovery from this addiction is very difficult. The chemicals used are industrial grade, not medical grade, so they are highly contaminated with damaging substances. There is no filtering or purification of the final product before injection, meaning the addicts get the full effect of the pollutants. About a decade ago, Russian doctors began to notice strange wounds on the bodies of some drug addicts—patches of flesh turning dark and scaly, like a crocodile’s—in the hospitals of Siberia and the Russian Far East. It didn’t take them long to discover the cause: the patients had begun injecting a new drug they called, predictably, “krokodil.” (Some accounts suggest the name was derived from one of the drug’s precursor chemicals, alpha-chlorocodide.) The Video showing the effects of the “flesh-eating” drug—christened desomorphine. There are now alarming stories that the monster could be at large in the U.S. Keywords: krokodil, flash-eating drug, drug abuse, drug addiction, desmorphine, how to make krokodile, how to make desmorphine, effects of drug krokodile ********************************** Join the Club!
