I don’t know how many times I will type this phrase, but DRUGS ARE BAD!!!! I had seen the topic “flesh eating drug” was trending, but I just ignored it; I mean, how the hell does a drug eat your flesh? I thought only diseases, bath-salt users, and zombies ate flesh.
Nope, apparently heroin has gotten so expensive, the Russians (groan!) have formulated a cheaper type of high called desomorphine or krokodil. Why Krokodil? Um, I don’t how to put this lightly, but when one injects this mixture of ingredients such as gasoline, paint thinner, and alcohol, it causes the flesh to deteriorate or rot away. Oh dear, I finally looked at some pictures of Krokodil users today, and I don’t think I’m going to display them. Honestly, a zombie eating intestines is so much more tame and tasteful than what this shit can do to your body. I’ve seen photos of flesh eating bacteria victims, and although I’m not discounting what they go through, they are lucky compared to what happens to these Krokodil bastards.
You would think meth would do a similar number on the human body, because it’s made up of so many things one should never consume on purpose, but I’ve never seen a “Face of Meth” as bad as a Krokodil user. Let me paint an image for you, or rather show it to you.
That scene used to scare me to death! Just imagine that process not only happening to your face, but to all of your extremities. Okay, I think I can display one picture that may or may not gross you out. WARNING: EXTREMELY GRAPHIC, NSFW! But not near as graphic as what you find when you type in Krokodil.
I keep wondering why this fascinates me so much. Is it the extreme depravity? The desperate addicts? Or, the gross out factor? I mean, Halloween is practically here. And now Krokodil has landed stateside. So if you see someone with their bones poking through his/her flesh or their crocodile-like skin, they ain’t no zombies.
DRUGS ARE BAD, BAD, BAD!
