           In the world there are many types of drugs and there are lots of people who consume drugs. Now as we all know, every drug has its negative consequences. But never have we seen a drug as deadly as the crocodile (written as the Krocodile). Overtime other drugs can lead to death with addiction but this drug is extremely powerful and will lead an individual to death within a year. Now if the drug is so dangerous. Why do people still use it?

                The drug Krocodile started in Russia. It started in Russia due to the easy access of codeine, the main ingredient in the drug. The drug is simple to make and all the products used in the drug are easy to buy and accessible to poor people. All someone needs is gasoline, red phosphor, iodine and hydrochloric acid. The drug is very similar to heroine but slightly different with less material and that’s what makes it a lot more dangerous. This drug is used by heroin addicts who don’t have a lot money. Due to the high cost of heroin of 150$ per use, Krocodile only cost a user 5-8$ a use. Which is why people who are addicted to drugs end up injecting themselves with it. When someone uses this drug his skin becomes scaly green and then rots becoming like the skin of a crocodile. Eventually the skin decades and you can see the individual’s bones. The only way of survival at this point is amputation but users usually have no money for medical care and infections are too big to heal.

           I believe it’s sad to see that some people are addicted to a point of taking a drug that they know will kill them and give them pain. This drug has started in Russia and is spreading around the world. The other day on the news the first case of Krocodile was seen in Laval. And I believe it’s important to spread the word about this drug to prevent any drug user from using it. This drug is deadly and the effects caused by it are grossing!
