* Krokodil is a makeshift opioid brewed from codeine in countries like UsefulNotes/{{Russia}} where heroin is harder to come by. The active ingredient (desomorphine) is several times more potent than actual heroin, but crude production methods (similar to those used to cook meth from pseudoephedrine) leave a ''lot'' of toxic byproducts in the brew, not only diluting the potency but also producing [[BodyHorror infamously gruesome side effects]] like gangrene. Indeed, the nickname "Krokodil" may be a reference to the scaly skin that develops around injection sites.
