Have you ever wondered why our great grandparents all had such fond memories of their youth?

Well.....I'm surprised they remembered anything at all !!!

Forget Tums & Tylenol. Forget Aleve & Benedryl.

Look at the cool stuff they had back then!

A bottle of Bayer's "Heroin".

Between 1890 and 1910 heroin was sold as a non-addictive substitute for morphine.
It was also used to treat children suffering with a strong cough.

Coca Wine, anyone?

Metcalf's Coca Wine was one of a huge variety of wines with cocaine on the market. Everybody used to say that it would make you happy and it would also work as a medicinal treatment.

Mariani Wine.

Mariani wine (1875) was the most famous Coca wine of its time. Pope Leo XIII used to carry one bottle with him all the time. He awarded Angelo Mariani (the producer) with a Vatican gold medal.

Maltine.

Produced by the Maltine Manufacturing Company of New York . It was suggested that you should take a full glass with or after every meal. Children should only take half a glass.

A paperweight:

A paperweight promoting C.F. Boehringer & Soehne ( Mannheim , Germany ). They were proud of being the biggest producers in the world of products containing Quinine and Cocaine.

Opium for Asthma:

At 40% alcohol plus 3 grams of opium per tablet, it didn't cure you... But you didn't care!

Cocaine Tablets (1900).

All stage actors, singers, teachers and preachers had to have them for a maximum performance. Great to 'smooth' the voice.

Cocaine drops for toothache.

Very popular for children in 1885. Not only did they relieve the pain, they made the children very happy!

Opium for newborns.

I'm sure this would make them sleep well.(not only the Opium, but also the 46% alcohol)


It's no wonder they were called, "The Good Old Days".
From cradle to grave... Everyone was STONED!

Another almost unbelieveable story of kidnapping
and three girls found alive.

I've heard some of the family say, they never gave
up hope.
When years go by and no body is found perhaps that's the hope family clings to.

How very sad they have been robbed of so much.
I hope the perverts that did this never see the
light of freedom ever again.

I just wonder how many missing people are out there being held against their will. A lot of people have been found in the last several years that had been kept captive..

Interesting info Ricky~~
In the south in the era you mentioned many ladies
became addicted to opiates via the town compounder.

It was discreetly sold to the ladies for cramps.
When a woman had to go to the "hopital" it was
usually for withdrawl.
Again, discreetly referred to as the nervous hospital.

At some point down the road I bet there's a lawsuit brewing against the police department in the missing Ohio women's case. They were called to the house several times.

Love the guy who rescued the women. He sure knows how to keep it real!

It just goes to show, if there's a such thing as guardian angels,
they come in all different shapes and sizes.
I sure hope they give this guy a reward and recognition for
what he did.
He saved four lives...

You won't believe how they use to 'cure' women
suffering from hysteria...
Let's just say there were probably a lot of women going to the doctor! LOL

I had a great aunt, born and raised in south Georgia.
She became a surgical RN and was superb at her job until
she discovered the wonderland of opiates.

She not only was an employee of the state mental hospital,
she later became a patient, several times over.

Never kicked her addiction but lived well into her seventies
on methadone in her later years.

I wonder by now if the guy who found the girls is riding around in limos, dining at fine restaurants and hitting the talk show circuit by now. If so, Good for him!

There might have also been rewards he's entitled to for the safe return of those girls.

Something similar happen in Syracuse a few years back. The man had a dungeon he kept girl's chained up in. If I remember correctly the guy had money and after he was convicted his house, money, etc all went to the girl's he held captive over the years.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
