Exclamation New "Zombie" drug that rots humans alive *GRAPHIC IMAGES*



Advertise Here

A very, very worrying sign of how drug users are going to extremes of the extreme lengths to get their fix. Sadly, they simply cannot rehab themselves off this drug, and so the chilling effects become ever more present.

I wonder how long until this spreads? It has already been reported in small numbers in Germany.

"Desomorphine attracted attention in 2010 in Russia due to an upsurge in clandestine production, presumably due to its relatively simple synthesis from codeine.

The drug is easily made from codeine, iodine and red phosphorus,[9] in a similar process to the manufacture of methamphetamine from pseudoephedrine, but desomorphine made this way is highly impure and contaminated with various toxic and corrosive byproducts.

The street name in Russia for home-made Desomorphine made in this way is "krokodil" (crocodile), reportedly due to the scale-like appearance of skin of its users, and it is used as a cheaper alternative to heroin, as codeine tablets are available without a prescription.

Since this mix is routinely injected immediately with little or no further purification, "Krokodil" has become notorious for producing severe tissue damage, phlebitis and gangrene, sometimes requiring limb amputation in long-term users. The amount of tissue damage is so high that addicts' life expectancies are said to be as low as two to three years."

These effects are due to the impurities of the drug due to clandestine manufacturing not really the drug itself, similar things happen to people using very impure heroin over a long period. It is unlikely this will spread far as heroin production in Afghanistan is keeping America and many other nations well supplied with relatively pure heroin

Knowing this will happen, why on Earth would anyone want to even try this?!

If you're dumb enough to inject that knowing what it does to users then Darwin has found his mark.

Probably many do not know what will happen, they are heroin addicts who need some sort of opiate when they are withdrawing so shooting up some impure opiate that will ward of withdrawal probably seems like a good idea at the time

Death within 2 years, for most within a year. I don't think it will be so popular here because codeine is a restricted drug, unlike in Russia where it is available over the counter.

I've had morphine before and I can attest that it's a wonderful feeling. Demorol is good too but I "enjoyed" the morphine much more.

This wasn't recreationally, but I can see how someone taking more than I was given could really like it and after a few times, get addicted. At that point, some will be willing to "roll the dice" with whatever means they have to get their fix.

It seems ignorance is a virtue on survivalistboards, easier to just let people stay on their high horse
