The 5 Most Dangerous Illegal Drugs Around the World

Using hardcore illegal drugs is no joke.

They have the ability to destroy your or end life. 

Many of the most dangerous drugs out there are far too easy to get. And there are always new ones showing up that offer all sorts of highs.

While it may feel like a good time at first, it isn’t long before you’ve got a full-blown addiction. And that’s FAR from a good time.

Five of the Most Dangerous Drugs out There

Some of these you may know, and others you may not, but they are all dangerous.

Remember that choosing to take any drug with the express purpose of getting high is akin to playing with fire. Especially when there are other legal options.

1. Gray Death

It’s not clear what combination of ingredients make up Gray Death, since every seized batch is different. But it IS clear that nothing in this drug has any business being inside the human body.

Most batches of Gray Death contain U-47700 – a dangerous synthetic opioid synthesized in the 1970s, but never tested on humans. Other opioids like fentanyl and heroin make this a deadly cocktail.

Even scarier? You can absorb the drugs in Gray Death through the skin, so an overdose is possible after having only touched a small amount.

2. Opioids

Opioid addiction can begin innocently enough. It may start with a simple prescription to OxyContin that, due to its addictive nature, turns to dependence. When pills become inaccessible, users may turn to heroin, oxycodone, morphine or even fentanyl.

And it all starts with one prescription.

3. Krokodil

Krokodil is all the rage in Russia, with over one million Russians believed to be addicts. Costing three times less than heroin, a big part of the attraction is the low price. 

But krokodil is far less pure than heroin. Since it’s often homemade, it can include things like painkillers, iodine, lighter fluid and cleaning agents. This gives it the potential to cause gangrene and eventual rotting of the flesh.

Thus, it’s considered more dangerous than heroin. 

4. Crystal meth

Crystal meth was legal from right after World War II to well into the 1970s. In fact, during that final decade, it was a diet aid. But the stimulant effect that makes the drug so alluring for very short-term use makes it devastating for anything longer than that.

Paralyzing addiction will cause the flesh to sink, damage to the blood vessels and brain, and require the help of Addiction Treatment Services.

5. Flakka

With a similar chemical make-up to the amphetamine-like drugs in bath salts, flakka is a stimulant that was once marketed as a legal high alternative to ecstasy. But the effects are VERY different and it’s no longer legal.

Flakka causes an elevated heart rate, enhanced emotions, and possible strong hallucinations. Because it affects mood-regulating neurons, it can cause permanent psychological damage and even heart failure.  

You do not want to mess with flakka.
