The following story is a bit lengthy but purposely so in order to warn the public of the dangers of a new street narcotic that is known as krokodil or crocodile.
It is arguably the worst drug ever, more so than heroin, crack cocaine or even methamphetamine. The drug literally eats the flesh of the user from the inside out destroying the body in the process. Exposed bones are common for users of this drug from which the user cannot recover. Large chunks of flesh are now gone permanently.
With the other street drugs, there is at least some hope for recovery.
Illinois State Police Trooper Jason Wilson says with krokodil, severe pain and incredible suffering are the calling card and most people will die from using this drug within a couple of years…
That’s Illinois State Police Trooper Jason Wilson from District 7 in East Moline.
