Druggies listen up this is serious and sounds a lot worse than the H1N1 pandemic that wasn't.
As I read the story I am amazed at some of the ingredients used to make this crap, a mix of codeine, gasoline, paint thinner, iodine, hydrochloric acid and red phosphorous.
My God is this a drug or a bomb.
No wonder it can rot your skin off.
DEA Now Monitoring Krokodil, a Deadly Morphine Derivative - FoxNews.com
EXCLUSIVE: A new designer drug called krokodil -- a derivative of morphine that can turn an addict's skin greenish, scaly and cause it to rot away -- is being eyed by officials at the Drug Enforcement Administration, FoxNews.com has learned.
"We're looking at it overseas, but we have not seen it yet in the U.S.," DEA spokesman Rusty Payne told FoxNews.com. "But we would not be surprised when that day comes."
Thus far, users of krokodil -- or desomorphine -- have only been found in large numbers in Russia, where 65 million doses of the opiate have been seized during the first three months of this year alone, Russia's Federal Drug Control Service told Time.
