want to get high? drug addiction gets gruesome with new drug krokodil


By ☮ soaring eagle ॐ, 2013-11-05

warning

this contains real images of the devastating effects of a new drug hitting the streets

krokodil

its being called a cheap but powerful heroin like drug..with devastating effects.

theres only been a few reported cases in U.S.A. so far but Europe is seeing a increase in it's availability on the streets despite the horrendous effects.

it is also now showing up in pills as well.

unsuspecting addicts are taking this powerful and dangerous drug without knowing it.

often the 1st signs of trouble don't appear untill its already been used a few times.

so whats so dangerous? isn't heroin bad enough how much worse can this be?

the high is more powerful then heroin supposedly, but thats not what causes the danger.

the danger is that it has a flesh eatting property that causes rapid deterioration of skin and muscle tissue.

i would recommend reading no further unless you can handle extremely gruesome images

these images are real..and really shocking..

i am posting this as awake up call to anyone who messes with powders..or even pills

your high is not worth it.. you will never know if this was added to what you have taken.

this could happen to you

im sorry for this

i know its horrifying im feeling sick posting it but if it helps shock people into awareness and get them clean before it affects them its worth it

many of t6hese images are out of russia where the drug began

but it has spread quickly despite strong efforts to keep it contained.

marijuana users believe in legalization of marijuana, a few may also believe all drugs should be legal. but if drug manufacturers are willing to do this to thousands of people just to increase profit margins, isn't some drug enforcement necessary?

krokodil is desomorphine

because it is easily synthesized from commonly available ingredients addicts have learned to make it themselves at home.

the high is short lived compared to heroin with withdraw symptoms starting almost immediately.

because of how quickly and easily it can be manufactured, and the short term high and quick withdraw users would make a batch and use it right away without further purification resulting in devastating gangrene often requiring amputation.

Of the few reported cases in U.S.A. several reported learning how to make it themselves online, but most thought they had bought legitimate heroin.

i have done the unthinkable and cut off my locks


By pyrobud, 2013-11-04

so for like a year now i have been unemployed after quitting my job at a fast food restaurant and i guess i just fell into peer pressure.cuz everybody was telling it was my dreads that were keeping me from getting a job. and that if i would just cut them off or clean them up some how it would be easier. well like two of my friends one has dreads and one used to have them one tells me i should twist the new grow and the other one had crochet dreads so he always say if you let me do it the will look perfect. so i guess nobody understands what natural dreadlocks mean. so eventually everybody got to me and with my girlfriend pushing me to get a job i felt like it was waht needed to be done to get everybody off my back. so its been like 2 weeks since i shaved my head and i can finally say that there is something i regret doing cuz now i cant wait for my hair to grow back so i can start all over again. it also seems like i really worked up some bad feeling toward the people the pushed me toward catting them.

Over a month now!


By Patrick4, 2013-11-02


I've actually been preoccupied enough that I'm around 1 month and a week, so even more progress! They're coming together really well, having to separate more and more and leaving them down a lot to help them along... They tend to stay in separate locks a lot, and each one eventually tangles in its own way/time and starts dreading in earnest. I've got a few really good ones around the sides and back, and I'm gonna pop a couple beads on the spots that are already well-dreaded but a little flat or unruly soon. Also just took my dreads to the Pinnacles National Park for some adventures on high peaks and deep caves! Great time always. Lots and lots of hiking these days, no wonder they're shaping up so well! I'd like to continue my thanks to this site for all the help and resources it makes available, I may have made some serious mistakes by now if it wasn't for this place.

Thanks and love you all! Keep on living a life worthy of a beautiful world.

Front vs. Back


By Sean Ford, 2013-10-29

This is just a random question for anyone who might know answer or ideas on how to work with said question. When growing natural dreadlocks it seems in more cases that the back locks up a lot quicker than the front. Why is this and is there a way of taking what is happening in the back and apply it to the front and sides of the head?

Gash On My Head.


By Sean Ford, 2013-10-29

I slipped in my friends bathroom the other day and hit my head on the toilet paper roll holder and got a really nasty gash just under one of my dreads. I was afraid I was going to have to brush out my lock to access the hurt area. I was also worried about the fact that I only wash my dreads once a week and didn't want to get an infection. I cleaned the area with peroxide and used and antibacterial soap. I then applied Neosporin to theroot of the lock and using a blow dryer I was able to melt the Neosporin deep under my dread to my scalp. It still hurts but, I am glad I was able to treat without having to upset my lock. If anyone has any thoughts or other suggestions on how I could have done things differently (aside from hurting myself in the first place) please let me know. Peace and love.

Biotin


By Kerry LoCo, 2013-10-27

Purchased a bottle of Biotin and started taking it yesterday. Don't really need it for hair growth, but am having a problem with my nails, so decided to try it. I will see if it does anything for the hair (which is pretty healthy so far).

How can i get the front of my hair to dread?


By Dakota DeMarco, 2013-10-26
I've been dreading for about 5 months and the back, top, and sides are all starting to form, but the front isn't. How can i get the front to catch up with the rest of my head?

My dreadies and me


By Abigail (:, 2013-10-19

So a lot of my friends at school have been noticing my hair, and noticing enough about it to ask me or assume things about it. They say, "You're going to cry when you try to brush that out." "Don't you have to not wash your hair in order for dreadlocks to form?" "How did you do them?"

Well, I wanted to say that I will NEVER brush them out! I am very much emotionally attached to them already. They're like the hair version of me: unique and spunky and sometimes a mess; but with time, we both get better.
