Krokodil, Not Crocodile

Not Krokodil





















What's that you say? Did I misspell it?

This 'N That Thursday Presents...

It’s a little of this and a little of that and everything in between…




Hosted by 2 brown dawgs & Ruckus the Eskie. Please linkup and join the fun on this Thursday Edition!

Not at all, Krokodil is the newest street drug, also known as desmomorphine.

It has the following attributes:

  • 3x cheaper to produce than heroin itself
  • 10x more potent than codeine

Ingredients included in this "toxic cocktail": 
Codeine
Gasoline
Paint Thinner
Hydrochloric Acid
Iodine
Red Phosphorous (from matchstick heads)

Time Magazine labels Krokodil the "World's Deadliest Drug"

There was a girl in Mexico City who was hospitalized with "severe lacerations" to her reproductive organs, initially thought to be a sexually transmitted disease (STD), later proven that she was injecting krokodil into her genitalia. This new drug caused the rotting of her genitals by "eating off the flesh".

You hear of 'meth mouth', and now there's the krokodil crotch?? Ain't it crazy what's out in the world nowadays!? Anyhow, I thought this was too interesting not to share.

  1. Good grief! I saw the story of the girl in Mexico City. How crazy is that? Gasoline and paint thinner...I just don't understand humans sometimes. She was so young to be so desperate. As sad as it is horrific but people do need to be aware that it is a street drug that's out there. Looking so forward to seeing everyone's sepia photos.
