Cocaine Toothache Drops Got a toothache? Back in 1885 you probably wouldn't care about it after taking cocaine-based toothache drops. They were only 15 cents a box!

There were no drive by shootings or the likes back then when all drugs were legal.

Good point, Cliffy. Back in 1885 a drive-by shooting would have occurred on horseback.

It's hard to believe so many hord core drugs were available OTC. My mom used to treat my general pains with paregoric, which came in a small bottle OTC...it contained opium!! No wonder I was such a happy kid!

Indeed, Naomi. Several months ago I posted a photo of a bottle of over-the-counter heroin. It was marketed as a children's cough medication!

A wee question. Isn't this how Coca-Cola was so popular when first introduced?
Posted by: Lava1964 on 2008-04-28 
A wee answer for donmac: Yes, Coca-Cola supposedly used coca leaves in its recipe--hence, its name. This allegedly stopped sometime around 1906. But since Coca-Cola's recipe is one of the world's best kept secrets, who knows for sure?

Thanks Lava. I can remember as a kid that they had to remove an ingredient or two. One used to get those tarnished pennies clean the other when taken in combination with certain drugs would increase the high.
