Exploding all over Western Europe is a new drug cocktail called "krokodil." This new drug cocktail has some pretty grusome side effects, that you would expect from a movie not real life.

Krokodil, named because it causes the users skin to appear  scaly, but also maybe because it can eat away human flesh.

The drug cocktail is made from codeine, but mixed with paint thinner and hydrochloric acid.

Krokodile is the bargain basement drug for users costing only $5-$8 a hit as apposed to the $150 a hit heroine.

Let's hope that this is one drug that never becomes en vogue.

It takes a special kind of person to say yes to a drug, that's main side effect is rotting your flesh from the inside out. What are Russians trying to prove?
