I Get No Kick From Cocaine (Toothdrops)

While browsing the History News Network I came across a link to this collection of Weed, Booze, Cocaine and Other Old School "Medicine" Ads. From the looks of it, every other man, woman and child in American a century ago was constantly hammered from over-the-counter drugs.

Mind you, the pharmaceutical industry was not completely irresponsible back then. At least Dr. Batty's Asthma Cigarettes were not recommended for children under six.
