Deadly flesh-eating drug, Krokodil, has arrived in the US. The first two flesh-eating drug US patients have been reported in Arizona.

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.
