The Start of the Cocaine Epidemic?

Snorting Alka-Seltzer
was something they once recommended in their ads.

That had to burn more than coke did. Still you probably didn't get sugar-boogers ...

Which somehow brings us to Mom and Apple pie Bayer aspirin.
Everyone associates Good old Bayer with health, BUT they were a huge producer of Cocaine back in the day and marketed Heroin as a CURE for opium and morphine addiction!
Even today they are a large producer of various pesticides, drugs, etc.
Sometimes cute little ad guys like Speedy for alka seltzer mask a darker reality.
