I (don't) want a new drug

Oct 14, 2013 - 14 comments

Well  .....there's a new drug out there folks.  I was listening to a radio show the other day and they were talking about it.  It's called  "crocodile"  (desomorphine)  .   It came from Russia and evidently it's morphine pills that have been crushed and put through a "backwoods" type chemistry process with gasoline and other solvents and harsh chemicals. It is said to kill the user within 2 years and it fairly immediately starts to turn the skin green and scaly,hence the name crocodile. Jeeeshhhhh!!!       Doctors in ER's in Chicago have recently been treating users so it is now making it's way through the U.S. .  Just what we need huh .     just wrote this so if anyone hears of their loved ones mentioning it you will know to set them straight on it,and also to watch out for this horrifying substance. They also said it's much cheaper than Heroin.    Has anyone heard of this crazy stuff ??

Yes!!  It's called Hillbilly Heroin or Krokodil, I think, and it's bad. The pics of people after a few months use are terrible; they look like ground up, raw meat on a skeleton. And they keep using...  

Awful, awful disease...thanks for bringing this up!

A 'gift' from our scaly, reptilian overlords? Who knew that opiates could be turned into a moonshine-like product? What next?  I'll be checking the city streets for that tell-tale Greenish complexion. It's not funny, actually. Just more disturbing stuff in the weird downwardly spiraling vector that is our shared Western Culture. This is all new to me.

I heard about it and it scared the crap out of me! It is absolutely insane that people will put this stuff in their bodies knowing what it does. I guess that's addiction for you though and they say this stuff is a super cheap high compared to other opiates.

I have posted about this on my facebook page before.  The drug is so very deadly and the pics are gruesome.

Vicki, Oxycodone gets called hillbilly heroin over here. I've never heard of this drug Ric, it might not be over here yet, hope not! It'll be on it's way though if its not here already. Sounds horrendous!!!

I just think that it is probably like everything else. The people who use it probably are looking for a cheap and available high and think that the bad results won't happen to THEM. It is horrible stuff
