Flesh-eating drug that makes your skin like a crocodile
THE US has recorded the first cases of a new drug that eats flesh from the inside and leaves users with reptillian-like skin.
WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES
The homemade drug is known as Krokodil, and it's extremely popular in Russia. It has the same mental effect as using heroin but is three-times cheaper.
Users mix codeine with hydrocarbons, like gasoline, oil or alcohol. The mixture is then filtered and boiled before being injected into the vein.
Banner's Poison Control Centre says the first two US cases have been reported in Arizona.
