Is Krokodil actually in the US now? Last I heard it was just eating junkies in Siberia.
The extent to which one must be fucked up, and I mean catastrophically, fascinatingly, apocalyptically fucked up, in order to chase a high that literally eats your flesh and leaves you looking like something out of The Walking Dead…I didn’t think we had that kind of fucked up here in America, at least not in sufficient numbers to support a market for krokodil.
All that aside, marijuana should be perfectly legal in every state in this country and it’s fucking ridiculous that it isn’t.[/quote]
They aren’t called dope Fiends for nothing. There have been a growing number of cases popping up across the US.
What I know of it is that it is really just a recipe that junkies can cook up themselves from basic morphine, but given the complete lack of sanitary procedure they end up injecting every little creature under the sun, or toilet stall, or where ever they happen to be at the time.
Thats what gets them.
Yeah, infections are basically inevitable. From what I’ve read, though, this shit actually has red phosphorus, paint thinner, and lighter fluid in it–as in, they are part of the recipe–and so even if you were to inject with 100 percent cleanliness (which, as you say, will not happen) the skin dies and rots anyway, because of the many poisons.
I mean, I’ve done drugs in my day, but damn. Damn. This stuff makes coke seem like herbal tea.
