This is when America starts to resemble a zombie movie. CBS News on the super-potent, cheap heroin substitute made from codeine, gasoline, and paint thinner that causes tissue necrosis.
Sweet Zombie Jesus! Apparently this is real, and while it’s far more widespread in Russia, I can see it catching on here because people are depressed and crazy enough to try it. Crystal meth is very bad — I know several people who battle with that addiction constantly — and it’s not something that law enforcement has been able to keep at bay. What the hell are they going to do when this shit becomes the latest life-destroying addiction in America? I honestly don’t think they’ll be able to do anything about it. They can’t keep people from buying the basic components of meth, after all, so how in the world will they keep people from cooking this shit up with gasoline, paint thinner, and stuff scraped from matchboxes? The obvious thing to do is clamp down even more on the sale of codeine, but there’s only so much you can do. If this catches on, we may just have to sit back and let people zombify themselves, and help them as much as we can. Cheery thought.
