Flesh-Eating Drug Hits The US

Krokodil is a very deadly drug that eats the flesh of its user. This dangerous flesh-eating drug first surfaced in Russia more than ten years ago. And now it has made its way to the United States as the first two cases of this flesh-eating drug have been found in Arizona.

Arizona state Banner Good Samaritan Poison and Drug Information center's co-medical director Dr. Frank LoVecchio said the first two cases of this drugs addicts have been reported in his state. According to Fox News, he said, "As far as I know, these are the first cases in the United States that are reported," LoVecchio said, adding that the cases are believed to be linked. "So we're extremely frightened."

Krokodil is almost similar to morphine or heroin. But this drug is very much cheaper than heroin. Its mixture can be easily cooked in a kitchen by combining gasoline, paint thinner, oil or alcohol with codeine. Then the user can inject this mixture into his vein. The use of this drug will turn the addict's skin greenish and on continuous usage, skin will become scaly and then rot away. Eventually, this deadly Krokodil drug eats away the addict's skin.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
