I saw this last night! Quite liiterally makes your skin FALL OFF. It’s gasoline they’re injecting into their systems. Just proves how desperate drug addiction makes people.

That stuff is nuts! It’s been a sever problem in Russia for years. It easy and cheap to make (codeine is otc in Russia) and even here codeine is $4-8, severe drug addicts are always looking for a cheap high and this fits the bill (as creepy as that is). I’ll never understand how one can get to that place where something like this seems like something someone would want to do to themselves, it’s terrifying.

I hadn’t heard of it.  The drug itself doesn’t sound bad.  I can understand why people would use it to treat pain, especially for palliative care.

The impure street stuff is another story SMH.

@tksjewelry:  Interesting. I will ask my relatives. I have never heard of it in my travels but again I am pretty indifferent to drugs wherever I am…and obvlious. There is also a lot of human trafficking and I’ve never been exposed to that either 😛

I am absolutely horrified right now… And sickened. I cannot imagine ever being this desparate. For ANYTHING

@Laurenskii:  I am disappointed in myself. Sadly, I don’t really have any Russian friends who still live in Russia. We go to see family and my elderly relatives don’t exactly live in areas where things like this are an issue, lol. I’m more like a spoiled tourist/guest when I’m there, which is quite sad if you think about it. I lived in Russia as a kid, but again…not exactly at an age where I’d be exposed to such things.

I shall think up an elaborate tale to tell 😀

@MrsPanda99:  it’s called Krokodil in Russia, I saw a documentary about it last month, it’s crazy.

This has been around for a while. From what I understand, it’s cheaper and easier to obtain than heroin, and the people buying it are generally already addicted to opiates.
