improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale
How cheerfully he seems to grin
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in,
With gently smiling jaws!
- from Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"
After a small hiatus, for some unknown reason, krokodil is back in the news. The UK’s Metro is reporting that krokodil could be tempting to drug users in the area. No, really…the headline reads:
Um. OK. Quite alarmist. The article also states that the drug has made its way to the US. Oy vey!
The International Business Times has countered with a sensible article. They simply concluded that there is no evidence that it has arrived in the UK.And I’m not even sure why this story describing worries over an increase in drugged driving out of the Bangor (Maine) Daily News even mentions krokodil…
So, again for the record, there still exists no credible evidence to support the idea that krokodil exists in the USA, Canada, or the UK.
