Krokodil: The drug that eats junkies

A home-made heroin substitute is having a horrific effect on thousands of Russia's drug addicts

By Shaun Walker

Wednesday, 22 June 2011


A heroin user prepares the drug in Zhukovsky, near Moscow

Oleg glances furtively around him and, confident that nobody is watching, slips inside the entrance to a decaying Soviet-era block of flats, where Sasha is waiting for him. Ensconced in the dingy kitchen of one of the apartments, they empty the contents of a blue carrier bag that Oleg has brought with him – painkillers, iodine, lighter fluid, industrial cleaning oil, and an array of vials, syringes, and cooking implements.

Half an hour later, after much boiling, distilling, mixing and shaking, what remains is a caramel-coloured gunge held in the end of a syringe, and the acrid smell of burnt iodine in the air. Sasha fixes a dirty needle to the syringe and looks for a vein in his bruised forearm. After some time, he finds a suitable place, and hands the syringe to Oleg, telling him to inject the fluid. He closes his eyes, and takes the hit.

Russia has more heroin users than any other country in the world – up to two million, according to unofficial estimates. For most, their lot is a life of crime, stints in prison, probable contraction of HIV and hepatitis C, and an early death. As efforts to stem the flow of Afghan heroin into Russia bring some limited success, and the street price of the drug goes up, for those addicts who can't afford their next hit, an even more terrifying spectre has raised its head.

The home-made drug that Oleg and Sasha inject is known as krokodil, or "crocodile". It is desomorphine, a synthetic opiate many times more powerful than heroin that is created from a complex chain of mixing and chemical reactions, which the addicts perform from memory several times a day. While heroin costs from £20 to £60 per dose, desomorphine can be "cooked" from codeine-based headache pills that cost £2 per pack, and other household ingredients available cheaply from the markets.

It is a drug for the poor, and its effects are horrific. It was given its reptilian name because its poisonous ingredients quickly turn the skin scaly. Worse follows. Oleg and Sasha have not been using for long, but Oleg has rotting sores on the back of his neck.

The supply chain:
The military industrial complex and hired mercs guard the poppies in Afghanistan to keep the opium pipelines up and running...
the production of heroin happening along the way as the drug finds its way onto the streets of big cities and tiny towns alike across the western world...
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED:
    * More money for the drug lords at the CIA
    * More business for the prison industrial complex
    * More business for the Pharma-sponsored "Rehab" complex
    * All casualties seen as a 'plus' for the eugenics toads
    * Any successes seen as a 'plus' for Pharma (manufacturers of 'lifetime' methadone/other maintenance programs)
The only losers are the addicts. They lose everything.
They are the hidden victims; the ones who get the blame while the big-ass drug CEO's and Generals get raises and promotions.
And  the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, 
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,  ye have done it unto me.

How can they survive one year on that stuff? There are quite disgusting news reports from russia about this showing the wounds. But most of the links you find are from the past 2-3 days like a commercial campaign has been kicked off. But I understand the eugenicist people when they say its evolution at work. Let the stupid kill themselfs. But its like what England did to China, getting them hooked on drugs to conquer them. Now the US does the same to Russia via Afghanistan. Or rather the banks are doing it. Cause in the end the druglords wont have their billions of profits stashed in their mattresses. But the reaction of the government shows that they dont want to do anything against it. Legalizing is the only solution. You might not reduce the drug abuse but at least they can use clean drugs for cheap so they dont need to commit crimes to get the money for it. Look how many hollywood people do drugs and people in entertainment and TV. They have the money to get the good clean stuff and it doesnt seem to hurt them that much. But the reasons for them to take drugs are different. For the poor people its to escape reality, for the entertainers its to be able to perform on a high level as it is demanded by the fans. Always to have engery and high spirits, smile all the time, etc. You cant give a good show when you are depressed and tired.

http://plumbot.com/Desomorphine#cite_ref-4
Desomorphine (Dihydrodesoxymorphine, Permonid) is an opiate analogue
invented in 1932 in the United States
,
that is a derivative of morphine, where the 6-hydroxy group has been removed and the 7,8 double bond has been saturated.
It has sedative and analgesic effects, and is around 8 times more potent than morphine.[1][2][3] It was used in Switzerland under the brand name Permonid, and was described as having a fast onset and a short duration of action, with relatively little nausea or respiratory depression compared to equivalent doses of morphine. The traditional synthesis of desomorphine starts from α-chlorocodide, which is itself obtained by reacting thionyl chloride with codeine. By catalytic reduction, α-chlorocodide gives dihydrodesoxycodeine, which yields desomorphine on demethylation.[4][5]

This drug attracted attention in 2010 in Russia due to an upsurge in clandestine production, presumably due to its relatively simple synthesis from codeine.[6] The street name in Russia is krokodil (crocodile) and it is used as a cheaper alternative to heroin, as codeine tablets are available without a prescription. Abuse of home-made desomorphine was first reported in eastern Siberia in 2002, but has since spread throughout Russia and the neighboring former Soviet republics. The drug is easily made from codeine, iodine and red phosphorus in a similar process to the manufacture of methamphetamine from pseudoephedrine, but desomorphine made this way is highly impure and contaminated with various toxic and corrosive byproducts. Since this mix is routinely injected immediately with little or no further purification, "Krokodil" has become notorious for producing severe tissue damage and gangrene, sometimes requiring limb amputation, in long-term users.[7][8]

=========================

Who gave the junkies the recipe? Hmmm.
Here's an article on Desomorphine (Krokodil) from 1936, four years after it was invented (by whom? still looking)...

The inventor was a US chemist...

Invented by: Lyndon Frederic Small,
of Charlottesville VA,
Assignor to the Government of the United States
Represented by the Secretary of the Treasury





Here's another one... this one with an associated application in Germany on Feb. 3, 1937:



Both patents start with this paragraph:

If you do a search for the inventor of this toxic, highly addictive opiate substitute, Desomorphine (Krokodil), you find this...
Research funding was provided by the Rockefeller Foundation.
The "Bureau of Social Hygiene" = Eugenics.





The early days of the drug business, with the funding provided by the Rockefellers, and branch offices in Germany (reference the patent associated application)... looks like eugenicists were experimenting with synthetic drugs for revenue streams and the annihilation of humanity. Rockefeller's bloody hands all over this one.
Need to prove the connection between Lyndon Frederick Small and his financial backers, the Rockefellers, in the years leading up to the patent in 1936.

A report on early studies of Krokodil - Desomorphine:
From the National Institute on Drug Abuse Research Monograph Series
Problems of Drug
Dependence 1991:
Proceeding of the
53rd Annual Scientific
Meeting
The Committee on Problems
of Drug Dependence, Inc.
http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.152.1512&rep=rep1&type=pdf#page=84

Page 57:
In the morphine series, 3-O-alkyl ethers were less potent as
analgesics than their phenolic counterparts, cleavage of the 4,5-
epoxide bridge reduced analgesic activity, alkyl-substitution in the 5
position resulted in increased analgesia as well as the dissociation of
other effects. Alkylating the alcohol function in the 6-position
increased analgesia, toxicity and convulsant effects, generally,
saturating the C-ring led to an increase in analgesia and alkylating
the 17-N to a quaternary compound eliminated CNS activity and
increased toxicity.

The most promising compounds to result from
this work were desomorphine and metapon whose structures can be
seen in Figure 3.

Desomorphine was generally more potent in all
activities tested than morphine.
It demonstrated a rapid onset and
a brief duration of action.

A low addiction liability in cats, dogs and monkeys showed promise,
however, later human studies showed a rapid onset of addiction.

(Note: is this WHY they had the patent with an an associated application for Germany?)

Sick.  Reminiscent of Stadol nasal spray.  Also a synthetic opiate, originally classed in the same category as codeine.  For years, many doctors prescribed loads of it for everything from migraines to back pain, saying it was not addictive (according to the manufacturer, Bristol-Meyers).  Discovered in class action suits that the manufacturer knew it was highly addictive for years and did not tell the doctors or change their 'insert'.  Later classed higher than morphine and medical marijuana.  Now, it is easier to get Dilaudid than Stadol.

Russia is the biggest consumer of heroin in the world. Nowhere are the country's drug problems more evident than in the Siberian town of Novokuznetsk, which lies on the Kazakhstan border. A new moonshine drug called Krokodil is gaining popularity in the area, and its effects on addicts are devastating.

If you extend all of the possible ways to euthanize whole populations or to eradicate a specific population within a larger demographic, the global monopolists have the control switch to every possible one of these mechanisms.

But before you can use this new stealth weapon system, you first, must be able to take total control of all communication lines including broadcast, cable, internet, satillite and phone... this way there is no way anyone inside the kill zone can sound an alarm... and they the Globies, have the switch... what was that little EAS test last week..?

The possibilities for the use of tainted drugs entering needles at the hands of the globalist drug lords to kill 10s of thousands of Poppy Heads, blame it on the Iran - Mexican drug cartel... and boom, the cattle will give you public permission to bomb Iran to molten lava... and invade Mexico...


Now let's think about the really big kill, a coordinated manipulation of water plant sodium fluoride, chem-trails vaccinations poisoned drugs and radiation leaks and or explosions from nuke generating plants...  and a well orchestrated  "terrorist attack" barrage at the same time in every city... with all communication shut down for an hour by the EAS, blaring Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture interspersed with Obama bastardizing the Gettysburg Address, and Janet "the ogre" Napolitano popping in every 45 second saying "This is a test and tuning operation of the Homeland Security Emergency Alert System"... so everyone outside the country thinks it's a test...you can expand the possibilities to a dooms day scenario. And remember they control all of this all the way up to the well-head...
