First U.S. Krokodil case recorded by doctors: 'Cannibal heroin' hits St. Louis Read

A flesh-eating drug that is popular in Russia and more deadly than heroin has reached St. Louis, with doctors confirming a case in the American Journal of Medicine.
Doctors at St Mary's Heath Center have come forward with the story of a patient they treated in December 2012.
The 30-year-old man's finger had rotted, turned black and fallen off.
He also had severe ulcers across both thighs.
The drug addict told doctors that eight months earlier he started using a substance called Krokodil - the Russian name for crocodile - that got its name from turning users skin green and scaly

According to STL Today (external - login to view) the man said he had turned to the drug because he could no longer afford his $300-a-day heroin habit.
Desomorphine, the drug’s official name, is made by cooking prescription painkillers with contaminants such as gasoline, alcohol, paint thinner or lighter fluid.
The drug produces a high similar to heroin but is much cheaper to make and more addictive.

Well heck, what more could one want.

Sure beats the hell out of going to rehab and becoming a person again.

It would be better if the side effects were death. No drain on the medical system and a reduction in crime.
