каким крокодила

Russia is thought to have more heroin users than any other country in the world – up to two million, according to unofficial estimates. Most addicts commit street crimes to support their habit: Many end up in prison, contract hepatitis or HIV, and die young. Russian addicts consume 75 to 80 tons of Afghan heroin each year, and an estimated 30,000 to 40,000 Russians die in drug-related incidents annually.

A couple enjoys the glamor of heroin use

Efforts to stem the flow of Afghan heroin into Russia have had some limited success, and the price of heroin has climbed, making it unobtainable for some addicts,

So the lower echelons of the drug society had to find an alternative. Codeine is readily available over the counter in Russia. Add some gasoline, paint thinner, hydrochloric acid, iodine and red phosphorous scraped from matche, and a sterile environment.

You end up with desomorphine. It's much more powerful than heroin, and can be made at a small fraction of the cost. But there are side effects, like the one that gives it its street name, Krokodil.

It was given its reptilian name because it rapidly turns the skin scaly. As you continue to use it, the side effects get worse.

The skin turns gray, and literally rots and falls away

exposing muscle and bone. If you miss the vein, there's an immediate abscess.

Most users are aware of the side effects, and go back to heroin as soon as they can afford it,

Hopefully before something falls off.

So stay away from krokodil and stick with heroin.
