Krokodile (also known as Kocodil meth) is a home made alternative to heroin and costs 1 tenth of the price of heroin. Simple to make with ingredients being easy to get. The psychoactive core agent of Krokodile is a home made version of the pharmaceutical drug desomorphine – an opiate type morphine substitute. Due to the addictiveness of desomorphine many doctors abandoned its use.
This home made clandestine version Krokodil can be manufactured by boiling tablets containing codeine and various other ingredients such as petrol, iodine, industrial cleaning oils, lighter fluids etc. Krokodil is flammable and is much stronger than heroin, but the high of it doesn’t last as long as heroin.
Krokodil drug usage has been a big problem in Russia since approximately 2002. Now this deadly drug is spreading into various countries including, the U.K and U.S. This drug is……
- Addictive after just one dose
- Eats/rots flesh & organs from the inside out (often with a horrific smell)
- Teeth rot out
- Blood poisoning – Blood vessels burst and the surrounding area dies
- Abscesses and gangrene forming from the inside to outside of the body
- There is No cure for this flesh eating illness
- Life expectancy for regular users is 3-4 years
Krokodil takes Toll on Russian Addicts
The Krokodil drug can be made in around 30 minutes by boiling tablets containing codeine and various other ingredients such as petrol, iodine, industrial cleaning oils, lighter fluids etc then injected by an intravenous needle into various body parts.
This procedure is often done many times in one day due to the short term of the high when on this drug. The user then injects this caramel-colored liquid into various parts of their body to get a high that lasts for approximately 30 – 60 minutes on average.

Oklahoma and NYC clubs
An Oklahoma resident, Justin McGee, 33, died in the hospital in November 2012. He technically died of a heart attack, but he showed symptoms of krokodil use, including missing skin. “It did his body so bad, he would lie in the bed with his head covered, because he didn’t want them to see,” his sister-in-law Lesia McGee tells The Verge.
Justin’s symptoms were stumping doctors, who eventually had him airlifted from the small town of Duncan to Oklahoma City. “They were calling us because I’m a nurse,” Lesia recalls. “They said, ‘Chunks of his skin are falling off and they can’t get an IV in.’” More…
The reaction the drug has on the users body. At the beginning the skin becomes greenish and scaly like a crocodiles. Within months gangrene sets in and the skin will start to rot form the inside out. The results of krokodile usage is an antibiotic resistant disease. A slow, agonizing, drawn-out death of decay and rot.
When users stop using Krokodil they go through severe and painful withdrawals for up to a month. The long term effects of the drug will last longer. The few that do survive are usually left disfigured, with neurological, endocrine and organ damage associated with chemicals and heavy metals commonly used in Krokodile production.
This deadly drug starts to eat the person quickly!
