VIDEO: Flesh-Eating Drug ‘Krocodil’ Makes its Debut in U.S.

The first cases of side effects from using krocodil, aka desomorphine, have surfaced in the U.S. The drug is so caustic that it causes the skin and flesh at the injection site to turn green and scaly — like a crocodile’s — and become infected and necrotic. A krocodil user’s life expectancy is 2-4 years at best.
