Nothing says calming the throat and cough relief like a few drops of heroin! We know just how pesky and uncomfortable coughing can be, that’s why the geniuses at Bayer marketed Heroin, which was considered a miracle drug, promoted it as a lovely cure for cough…..and morphine addiction. It was considered 100% harmless and addition free!
Heroin was commercialized by Bayer Pharmaceuticals in the 1890’s as a pain reliever, but also a cure for pneumonia, coughs, asthma, tuberculosis, and bronchitis. Doctors even gave patience’s heroin to weed off cocaine. It was stopped in 1913 and banned in 1924.
