Cocaine cut with the veterinary drug levamisole could be the culprit in a flurry of flesh-eating disease in New York and Los Angeles.

The drug, used to deworm cattle, pigs and sheep, can rot the skin off noses, ears and cheeks. And over 80 percent of the country's coke supply contains it.

"It's probably quite a big problem, and we just don't know yet how big a problem it really is," said Dr. Noah Craft, a dermatologist with Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute.

In a case study in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, Craft describes six cocaine users recently plagued by the dark purple patches of dying flesh. And while they happened to hail from the country's coastlines, the problem is national.

"It's important for people to know it's not just in New York and L.A. It's in the cocaine supply of the entire U.S.," Craft said.

Craft is one of several doctors across the country who have linked the rotting skin to tainted coke. The gruesome wounds surface days after a hit because of an immune reaction that attacks the blood vessels supplying the skin. Without blood, the skin starves and suffocates.

Even if this isn't true, it's a helluva way for doctors to scare people away from it.

I'm not sure this is true. Because saying its in 80% of the cocaine in the US is simply an unreal number...Its crazy if it is however.

Now in my past life I've seen a lot of cocaine in my day. Ive seen everything from, Inositol(which is good for you), to No Dose, to rat poision be used as a cut for coke. there's people out there that cut it with some really bad ****. really bad. Its scary to think. I don't do it, but it still bothers me...

Sketchy to say the least. Thats a very vauge article, and hard to believe the 80% number. And to the guy who said serves them right, why dont you get off your high horse Mr. Righteous. That is a terrible misfortune to say anyone deserves, its not like these guys were nessecarily distributing to children, they probably were like most coke users just people with problems like everyone else.

Why not? It's an overrated drug in terms of how bad it is. Most people are ok with weed but swear off coke.

It's not as bad as most people think. It's certainly not as bad as pills, heroin, meth, or crack just to name a few.

IDK ... Utilizing a flesh-eating disease seems less cost effective and more time consuming than immersion in corrosive acid for dissolving hookers.

It doesn't really seem like his style. :lol:

Defending cokeheads and saying cokeheads dont deserve flesh eating diseases is just a tad different, no?

It doesn't affect me either way, if they want to snort/shoot drain-o cut coke, who cares. To each his own.
