Horrific Drug Plague in Russia

By Lucky @imlosingitorg

Desomorphine (chemical formula : C17H21NO2) is a powerful drug which takes the form of a powder.   First synthesized in 1932, it is far more potent than heroin and can be either ingested orally or injected intravenously through a syringe.   A controlled substance, desomorphine has been consumed as an illicit drug throughout Russia, where it is often referred to as “krokodil” on the street.   Widespread use of desomorphine was first detected throughout eastern Siberia in 2002.   Since then, it has spread westward, covering all of Russia and at least some former Soviet Socialist Republics.   It’s consumption far too often causes such horrifying effects as the degeneration and destruction of skin and muscle tissue, quite possibly the degeneration and destruction of bone mass, and the spread of gangrene.  “Krokodil” use has even reached Germany, where it has caused several fatalities.   Organized gangs are known to be the main supplier of this deadly and horrific drug in the world today.   Active from Vienna (Austria) to Vladivostok (Russian Far East), this criminal organization has been heavily involved in illegal drug trafficking, kidnapping, illegal weapons procurement and the theft of plutonium.   The same organized gangs are said to be involved in the illegal transportation of Chinese natonals into Japan and has even been active throughout the Andean region of South America.   (Article by Freelance Writer B.E.
