Weed, Booze, Cocaine

Weed, Booze, Cocaine and Other Old School "Medicine" Ads - Pharmacy Technician Schools

Here are some vintage advertisements touting items that we might balk at taking today.

Some over the counter medications available at the moment are just as bad/good as these. In the UK codeine is available OTC with paracetamol and dextromethorphan is widely available as an anti-cough medicine even though taken in sufficiently large doses it is a hallucinogenic.
