There is a new drug reportedly hitting the streets in the U.S. and the side effects are horrific. The drug, called Krokodil, has been used in Russia for a few years but incidents in the U.S. are fairly recent. The drug is called Krokodil because it makes your skin look scaly and often turns it green or even purple. The side effects don’t stop there as it eats away at your skin and leaves disturbing wounds.
The drug is more potent than heroin but is homemade using codeine and gasoline, lighter fluid, industrial cleaners, and even acid. It is cheap but extremely dangerous.
