Desomorphine is a substance that can inexpensively be synthesized from codeine, gasoline, or paint thinner. Its effects are 8 times more powerful than heroin and cause major physical trauma.
Little is known about the drug aside from reported cases of it’s use in Russia, where it goes by the street name Krokodil. A typical Krokodil addict may live for up to 3 years before the their bodies rot and decompose entirely. It’s the hardest drug in the entire world, like heroin for junkies who are OVER heroin already. The only way for a Krokodil addict is down, as it literally eats away users flesh and leads to limb amputation.
It is the downer-equivalent to the zombie-craze-inducing “bath salts” in the US.
