First Cases Of Flesh-Eating Homemade Drug Krokodil Reported In United States

First Cases Of Flesh-Eating Homemade Drug Krokodil Reported In United States 1

This is when America starts to resemble a zombie movie. CBS News on the super-potent, cheap heroin substitute made from codeine, gasoline, and paint thinner that causes tissue necrosis:

A poison control center in Phoenix, Ariz. is reporting that it has received calls regarding what is believed to the first two cases of krokodil use in the U.S. About 1 million people in Russia use krokodil, and the drug has been found in other European countries as well.

Eight to 10 times more potent than morphine, a homemade version of krokodil is easily made using codeine, iodine, gasoline, paint thinner, hydrochloric acid, lighter fluid and red phosphorus.

The drug got its nickname because users tend to develop scale-like, green skin. Skin can fall off following use, resulting in exposed bones. The drug also causes blood vessels to rupture and death of the surrounding tissue. The average user does not live longer than two to three years.
