According to the New York Times, the latest scandal to hit the ever-competitive world of horse racing is a drug called dermomorphin. This drug is obtained from the skin of the Phyllomedusa sauvagei, commonly known as the waxy monkey tree frog. The effects are said to numb pain and make racehorses hypeactive. According to experts, this frog skin juice is considered even more powerful than morphine, which makes it the perfect secret weapon for a sport already under fire over doping scandals.
