An article in The Independent: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/krokodil-the-drug-that-eats-junkies-2300787.html

Wiki entry on desomorphine: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desomorphine

And a graphic video in Russian about effects. Really graphic, people. Think twice before clicking.

What puzzles me the most is that codeine is available OTC in Russia. Hello? An opiate OTC??? That's just asking for trouble.

I thought that Codeine, in the form of Tylenol #3/4 with Codeine, was available OTC in Canada and Mexico as well, if not a truckload of other countries?

Um...yeah. A little help, please? My Russian slang isn't what it used to be. I am better at Russian to English translations.

The problem with slang is that it seems to evolve (or devolve, depending on perspective) faster than the language itself. I had watched the Russian equivalent of House called Interns and picked up quite a few new slang expressions that weren't there 20+ years ago.

Luurve your location! :P

You can get pretty much anything without a prescription in many countries. Not just codeine.

That's a great idea for an episode. Hope the creators of the show are reading here instead of ripping off House.

As is glue and crystal meth aren't bad enough. :(

Clearly, there is a dire need for methadone programs in Russia.
