Encouraging Heroes. You can be one too.

Heroes, have you heard of Krokodil? This is a newer drug making the rounds. It was invented in America, but perfected in Russia and has returned.


Well, I don’t know that that’s exactly the best word, because this drug is AWFUL. A toxic mix of codeine, iodine, and red phosphorus, this drug produces a short high.

See what I mean? Awful. Take a look at the infographic below for more information.
