Flesh-Eating Cocaine: This Will Make You Never Want to Try Drugs (PHOTOS)

Most people are well aware of the health risks that come with the use of hard drugs and narcotics. Those who are addicted to cocaine face many concerns—including possible death—with each use of the drug.

Cocaine users are at a higher risk of heart attacks, brain damage, seizures, comas, lung damage and death. Not to mention a plethora of psychological disorders and issues that may be triggered by extended use of the drug.

If that’s not enough to get you to stay away from these dangerous drugs, a new danger that has come to light just might do the trick.

One more risk has been added to the already-lengthy list of terrible side effects, and it’s a major one.  Cocaine being sold in the U.S. and U.K. is now being laced with a drug used to de-worm cattle.

The interaction of the de-wormer and cocaine is causing people’s flesh to actually rot away.

The chemical interaction triggers a reaction in the auto-immune system. In the horrific reaction, the human flesh actually eats away at itself. People are reporting huge sores, bruises and grotesque patches of inflammation as a result.

While the images in the slideshow above are extremely graphic, it’s important to be aware of just how terribly drug use can ruin your health and destroy your life.
