SHOCKING Vintage Child Medicine Ads!!!!

asthma cigarettes

Drugs like cocaine and heroine weren't always considered harmful.

In fact, a hundred years ago, pharmacists were giving them to children!

To see just what they used to put in pediatric remedies, check out these archaic ads:

chloroform

"Kimball White Pine and Tar Cough Syrup:

Chloroform: That stuff in which rags get soaked in movies and then shoved in someone's mouth in order to knock them out before they're kidnapped or killed.
Oh, also that stuff once used on kids to help suppress coughs."

cocaine drops

"Lloyd Cocaine Toothache Drops:

Cocaine was sold over-the-counter until 1914, which was otherwise known as the good old days."
