Krokodil Flesh-Eating Drug Hits U.S.

Krokodil the Flesh Eating Substance has been uncovered in Arizona.

Heroin, Flesh Eating Drug, Krokodil Krokodil, real name desomorphine, is an opioid derivative of morphine. Like other addictive opioid  substances such as heroin.  It has a sedative and analgesic effect.

It’s onset is reportedly fast-acting and  eight to 10 times more potent than morphine. A homemade version of the substance  is easily made using codeine, iodine, gasoline, paint thinner, hydrochloric acid, lighter fluid and red phosphorus.

Krokodil is a popular Russian drug, made of codeine and an assortment of other chemicals, which are injected directly into the vein.

Dr. Frank LoVecchio, the co-medical director at Banner’s Poison Control Center, reported that his center located in Arizona has dealt with two users of the dangerous drug known for its use in Russia in the past week.

“As far as I know, these are the first cases in the United States that are reported. So we’re extremely frightened,” he said.

“They extract (the drug) and even though they believe that most of the oil and gasoline is gone, there is still remnants of it. You can imagine just injecting a little bit of it into your veins can cause a lot of damage,” LoVecchio said.

The combination of these chemicals (see list next page) often causes gangrene, making it necessary to amputate the affected regions. The acidic chemicals can also rot and eat at the flesh from the veins out.Heroin Drug Hits Arizona

It has been gaining attention internationally because of growing use in Russia, in part because it is cheaper than buying heroin. About 1 million people in Russia use krokodil, and the drug has been found in other European countries as well, according to the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services.

Heroin, the drug most often compared to krokodil, is considered much more healthy and much less addictive than the flesh-eating intoxicant.

Russia is estimated to have around 2.5 million drug addicts, most of whom use heroin.

According to sources:  In 2009, Russian drug control services seized over 65 million doses of the drug.

NOTE:  A heroin addict may live up to six or seven years. The life of a desomorphine addict is much shorter- two years maximum. Some may take it for five years, but many people die after taking their first dose of this drug.

Heroin, the drug most often compared to krokodil, is considered much more healthy and much less addictive than the flesh-eating intoxicant.

Wide Reciever Dan Buckner leaves Texas following Arrest

Former Texas wide receiver Dan Buckner has enrolled at Arizona for the spring semester and plans to join Mike Stoops’ team after sitting out a redshirt season.

Buckner transferred from the Texas program last week less than 24 hours after he was arrested in College Station, Texas, on charges of criminal trespassing and resisting arrest.

He was released from jail after posting bonds totaling $8,000 shortly after that incident.

The 6-foot-4, 215-pound sophomore from Allen, Texas, appeared in all 14 games for the Longhorns in 2009, including six starts. He produced 45 catches for 442 yards and four touchdown grabs to rank as Texas’ third-leading receiver.

Leach, Texas Tech ordered to mediate

But 29 of those catches came in the first five games of the season as Buckner saw his playing time limited later in the Longhorns’ 13-1 season.

He had one catch for minus-3 yards in Texas’ national championship game loss against Alabama and only seven catches over the final four games of the season as his flex end position was gradually phased out of the Longhorns’ attack by offensive coordinator Greg Davis.

Buckner will sit out the 2010 season at Arizona, but will have two years of eligibility remaining with the Wildcats beginning in 2011.

Amazing…Walks Away With Minor Bumps ans Bangs

Someone was definitely looking out for these people.  The 22 year old driver and his 18-year-old friend were traveling on Hwy U.S 100 near flagstaff Arizona at an estimated speed of 75 miles per hour.  The driver broke through the guardrail, on the right side of the culvert, where the people are standing on the road pointing.  When the vehicle hit the guardrail, it flipped end-over-end and bounced across the culvert outlet.  See picture below:
