A wild Krokodil appears!

Russia has more heroin users than any other country in the world – up to two million, according to unofficial estimates. For most, their life revolves around crime, prison and probable contraction of permanent pool closure.

As efforts to stem the flow of Afghan heroin into Russia bring some limited success, and the street price of the drug goes up, for those addicts who can't afford their next hit, an even more terrifying Pokèmon called Krokodil has raised its head.




It is desomorphine, a synthetic opiate many times more powerful than heroin that is created from a complex chain of mixing and chemical reactions, which the addicts perform from memory several times a day. While heroin costs from £20 to £60 per dose, desomorphine can be "cooked" from codeine-based headache pills that cost £2 per pack, and other household ingredients available cheaply from shops.It is a drug for the poor, and its effects are horrific. It was given its reptilian name because its poisonous ingredients quickly turn the skin scaly.

Unlike heroin, where the hit can last for several hours, a krokodil high only lasts between an hour or 2. Given that the "cooking" process takes at least half an hour, being a krokodil addict is basically a full-time job...mum would be so proud.
 
If you miss the vein, that's an abscess straight away essentially, these people are injecting poison directly into their flesh. It goes grey and peels away to leave bones exposed. People literally rot to death. It is PROPER ROUGH. I cannot stress that enough.... and although this is slightly off my usual topic i felt i needed to share :)

So now I am warning you as a friend and potential lover only watch this if you are interested in seeing the effects of this drug on some patients shot by the doctors treating them and wish to further your knowledge or if you just fancy watching something in Russian or if you proper want to gross yourself out for the luls(skip to 4:50).

Protip: You get a quick flash of a lady garden too!

  1. Read about this a while ago, apparently another side effect is that after you start using it you're guaranteed to be dead within 6 months, and the worst thing is most people who use it are aware of this.

  7. I recently saw a special on Krokodil and agree that it's terribly nasty stuff. Also, some of the slums in Russia where user of this drug "live" look incredibly destitute.

  13. Sounds like almost zero benefits to using this drug, and a huge downside...makes you wonder why people start using it at all.

  16. This is a direct affect of Russia's anti-Christian campaign. There are also more atheists in Russia than any other nation in the world. Remember- they're all commie garbage, so naturally they are atheist satan-worshipers. High rates of atheism = high rates of drug abuse. It's a simple fact.
