Doctors are scrambling to stop people from using a cheap heroin knock-off that's coming into the United States from Russia. And it's growing across this country in popularity. The drug is known as "Krokodil," because after the high, the skin rots and takes on a scaly green appearance. We want to warn you, some of these pictures are graphic. Ted Rowlands has more. The images are horrific, people with missing and rotting flesh, in some cases down to the bone. It's from a horrible drug called Krokodil, it's extremely addictive and gives users a heroin-like high. Suspected cases surfaced in the U.S. last month in Utah and Arizona. Then, last week, five people showed up at this hospical in Joliet, Illinois with similar symptoms. One person, a woman, according to doctors, lost significant portions of her legs. So far, none of the U.S. cases have been confirmed as being caused by Krokodil, but the doctor who treated the Illinois patients is convinced. "It's a zombie drug," says Dr. Abhin Singla, an internist and addiction specialist. "It literally kills you from the inside out. If you want a way to die, this is a way to die." The drug first surfaced in Russia in the early 2000's and has grown in popularity, as many as 1-million Russians are estimated to use Krokodil. "When you see these images, you think who would use this drug?" asked CNN's Ted Rowlands. "The problem is, it's much cheaper than heroin and relatively easy to make. Some of the ingredients include lighter fluid, paint thinner and gasoline. One of the issues is that it's actually more addictive than morphine, because it's almost 10 times more potent." According to the hospital in Illinois, their patients said they thought they were buying heroin. "I think it's the tip of the iceberg, I think it's going to get worse before it gets better," says Miguel Razo of the Illinois Poison Center. "I think if it stays on the market long enough, you're going to have people who are desperate addicts that can't support their heroin habit but can utilize this drug, not really caring about the consequences and get the same high for a third of the price." But the real price looks like this, and the hope is that these images are horrific enough to prevent people from using the drug.
