The photos of what this drug can do to a body are so gruesome I won't even post them on this blog, so if you want to see them go here.

Ok so I usually keep things light and fluffy like a good cake frosting on this blog, but THIS, this is so revolting, I NEED to share. Remember the bath salts debacle, well this may be worse. Back when bath salts occurred people didn't know if you bought this new drug at 711 you might end up eating someone's face off. But now there's a drug called Krokodil, or desomorphine if you want to get technical, and while you won't end up becoming a cannibal it's nicknamed the "cannibal drug" b/c it literally eats YOU from the inside out. Apparently it was made in the 1930's as a painkiller but now that it's being made anywhere now, the toxic chemicals in the ingredients used are making for a horrific combination. It's considered to be the poor man's heroin but is actually three times more addictive than heroin itself! While being a good girl myself I had to look up this stuff so don't be alarmed and think, "how does she know that a heroin high lasts almost 3 hours while krokodil is only 90 minutes?" I didn't, I researched it. For $5 or more (1/10 the price of heroin) you can buy a mix of morphine, gasoline, codeine, alcohol, paint thinner or lighter fluid. It can melt your teeth. It begins to rot your flesh and skin from the inside out and causes gangrene and abscesses . In some cases, people's muscles and tendons were so badly exposed they needed skin grafts and amputations. Users skin begins to turn scaly, black and green in certain spots resulting in a crocodile like appearance, hence the street reference krokodil. It's been reported to have been used in Russia for over a decade and cases have been popping up in the past two weeks in Arizona, Illinois and beyond. The scariest part? Doctors are saying that once people start using this drug their life expectancy is one to two years at most.
