- Deadly Drug Krokodil May Have Entered the U.S
Several reports indicate that the dangerous drug Krokodil may have made its way into the United States from Russia. There are two people in the state of Arizona suspected of using the drug, which is known to rot the skin from the inside.
The team at the Banner Good Samaritan Poison & Drug Information Center in Phoenix have are having trouble confirming the injections were krokodil as the drugs have not yet been tested. They have stated that two other cities in the United States also have unconfirmed cases of krokidil injections.
Krokodil gets its name due to its ability to rot the skin from the inside leaving bone and muscle tissue exposed. The skin will also take a scaly and green appearance, which looks similar to that of a crocodile. This causes most users to dies from loss of skin, infection, and gangrene.
According to the Journal of Addictive Diseases, krokadil was first used in Russia in 2003. It is a homemade drug which combines codeine, lighter fluids, gasoline, paints thinner, alcohol, and other harmful ingredients to give users a feeling similar to heroin.
The drug became popular as other drugs were difficult to smuggle, while its homemade ingredients were not. This caused the drug to spread rapidly throughout Russia, and ultimately make its way into the United States.

As an attorney here at PLG, I’m lucky to be surrounded by seasoned attorneys and knowledgeable staff that share my enthusiasm for helping accident victims. The team here at PLG treats clients with respect and empathy while fighting hard to get the results they deserve.
Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!

I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
