Krokodil in Oklahoma? Maybe Not.

Shield-smallOklahoma’s Bureau of Narcotics says that there’s no evidence that the Russian flesh-eating drug Krokodil is in the state. By the way, if you’re interested in seeing actual photos of what this stuff does, you can do so here.

Via HuffPo:

The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics said Monday that reports of deaths in the state linked to the use of the horror drug krokodil are unsubstantiated.

In a phone interview with The Huffington Post, OBN spokesman Mark Woodward said that there is no “conclusive evidence” linking the deaths of two Duncan, Okla., men last year to krokodil, a gruesome street drug similar to heroin that causes flesh to rot off users’ bones.

“There’s no current investigation,” Woodward told HuffPost. “His death was ruled a drug overdose,” he said, referring to the case of Justin “Quincy” McGee, a man who some outlets suggested may have been the first to die as a result of krokodil in the United States.

“OBN has not confirmed a single case in Oklahoma. We are aware of reports about its use in our state, but we are not aware of any evidence that can support the claims,” Woodward said.

    I thought my fellow Americans were the only ones stupid enough to make a recreational substance that was guaranteed to kill you. This stuff is brutal.

    Would these neo-junkies just try to find a way to die in ease? One of the tremendous terrors death brings with it is the fear of pain –actually a friend recently told me he did not fear death as much as the pain it comes with, a feature which inclined me to indulge in the extreme righteousness of experiencing masochism as a way of extasy?

    Anyway these are true masochists who inject such a poison, so everything depends on what we define the word with. But what is really at stake is that in order to ‘volunteer’ for such an extreme misfortune one has to live with a grey barring line ahead as his sole boring perspective. Boredom is an absolute twister of faith. Who cannot stand it will not go much forward. Quite a challenge for young minds.
