FLESH-EATING COCAINE

LOS ANGELES  – Drug users across Los Angeles have encountered some bad  cocaine that is eating away their flesh.
In a case study in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, Craft describes over seventy cocaine users recently plagued by the dark purple patches of dying flesh. And while they happened to hail from the country’s coastlines – especially in Los Angeles –  the problem is national.
As if cocaine wasn’t dangerous enough.  Check it out:

 The DEA recently reported that 82 percent of the cocaine it seizes is cut with the veterinary drug.  While cheaper cocaine can be close to 90 percent filler, it’s often notably filled with harmless baking soda. Exactly why the veterinary drug has begun to be popular remains a subject of debate.
But drug cartels in South America increasingly prefer to use levamisole, a veterinary antibiotic normally used to deworm cattle, sheep, and pigs. It’s not clear why dealers don’t just use baking soda all the time, although studies in rats suggest that levamisole might tingle brain receptors in the same way cocaine does. If that’s the case, adding it to the supply might be a way to enhance the effects of cocaine on the cheap.

Apparently not everyone has the same reaction to the drug and  the effects do disappear from some of the affected once the drug leaves the body, but bad scars will remain with the user forever.

  1. so fake, nobody in these pictures have any signs of the people doing cocaine, the lady is super happy and not in pain. and why would they admit to doing cocaine and pose for pictures, they would probobly get arrested. plus the guy has a stitch in his ear, and anyway, why would he have cocaine on his ear, and not is nose?

  2. You really make it seem really easy together with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be really something that I feel I might by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and very large for me. I am looking ahead in your next submit, I will attempt to get the dangle of it!
