There is a new designer drug from Russia that doctors are saying made its way to Arizona, but the weird part is that it is literally eating people from the inside out. This drug is three times cheaper than heroin and has similar effects as heroin. They took codeine mixed with alcohol, gasoline, or oil and mixed it together and inject it in the bloodstream. Desomorphine, known in Russia as “krokodil,” or crocodile is named after for the scaly scabs that covered the person’s body like the scales of a crocodile. “But the drug also had more and more damage to human tissue as it literally ate the human body like a flesh-eating bacteria,” states Many would say that this is not our problem, but sadly it has now. According to, an Arizona local news station, the first two victims of this drug have arrived in an emergency room in AZ. “ “We’ve had two cases this past week that have occurred in Arizona,” Dr Frank LoVecchio, the co-medical director at Banner’s Poison Control Center, told KLTV. “As far as I know, these are the first cases in the United States that are reported. So we’re extremely frightened.”

“It seems to have first appeared in Siberia and the Russian Far East around 2002, but only in the past three years has it spread throughout the country. Since 2009, the amount of krokodil seized in Russia has increased 23-fold, according to the head of the Federal Drug Control Service, Viktor Ivanov. In the first three months of this year alone, the service says, it confiscated 65 million doses.

Predictably, it has spread the fastest in the poorest and most remote parts of the country, like Vorkuta, Pavlova’s hometown, a former Gulag prison camp about 100 miles (161 km) north of the Arctic Circle. The winters there last eight months of the year, and as Pavlova recalls, the young people are in a constant state of boredom. Most of them drink and few of them work, the same as in hundreds of towns and villages across Russia’s frozen north. Besides her, Pavlova says there were about a dozen krokodil addicts she hung around with, including her brother. “Practically all of them are dead now,” she says. “For some, it led to pneumonia, some got blood poisoning, some had an artery burst in their heart, some got meningitis, others simply rot.”

This drug starts to eat their body from the inside out rotting tissue, flesh, and muscle. Their life expectancy from their first use is only three years.
