    Ever seen a original Bayer heroin pellet it was brown hard round pellet
    I find it amusing that the this guy is so freaked out these were OTC. Regulated commerce was learned, back then any town could have a pharmacist throw together some compounds
    Before becoming illegal many were taxed with narcotic taxes and prescription, later deemed to have no medical use
    Nembutal is still used, it's a popular euthanasia drug for vets

    Firstly you're getting methamphetamine terms mixed up, it's under the family of amphetamines which do include things like speed and aderall, however, they are not the same. secondly, morphine is still available over the counter in the UK but its a mixture and can be easily separated, heroin is still used in palliative care in the UK and Cocaine can also be prescribed in hospitals

    Kids these days are finding new ways to get high off of over the counter things. NyQuil is a perfect example, it has dextromethrophan in it, and it’s 10% alcohol. Yet I have seen kids that are young buying it. It is gonna get to the point that people who actually need these medications will not be able to get them. The opioid crisis in the US is a shining example of a few junkies messing things up for people that need pain relief. I have end stage pancreatic and liver cancer “stage 4”. I stay in constant pain, but Dr’s get so afraid to write scripts for medication that actually helps. I was told I won’t be here much longer, so the oncologist tries to make sure I’m pain free. I just feel bad for others that are in real pain and having to suffer.

    Wrong!! Methamphetamine was first synthesized in Japan by Nagayoshi Nagai in 1893. Lazar Edeleanu created Amphetamine, which is a totally different drug (present-day adderall). If you’re gonna make factual videos get your facts right.

    Opium was used by the Greeks and Persians more than thousands of years ago. The Greeks used to dissolve it into wine as a medicinal tonic.
    Nembutol was mixed with scopolamine in truth serum,
    And is nembutol is mixed with potassium chloride in some lethal injection mixtures.

    methamphetamine and amphetamine are simular but different.
    methamphetamine is used in the US mainly for Diet control. amphetamine salts like adderall are used for adhd, and not neurotoxic as meth is.

    Would be great if all these were made legal again, as people would not abuse them as much as many do now days. Take too much of any opiate and the person stops breathing and dies, however they are great for pain due to injuries. The only thing that has ever made me stoned is not even on the scheduled list, and that was Celebrex. Even the medications used for surgery do not make me as stoned as that stuff. If someone is looking for a trip where they will not worry about anything take Celebrex. There are many doctors that think it is safe.

  • jeff wolf

    I've got a horribly painful case of Crohn's and Colitis with pouchitis added just for the icing on the cake. I was first put on tincture of opium and anybody that's ever been on that drug knows it's got nothing to do for pain relief at all. What it does is it makes your resistance to narcotic painkillers increased substantially. I was on it for 14 years before I was put on painkillers and I had to start at a 20 mg and I started with three of them I ended up with four of them a day and also a 50 microgram fentanyl patch that last for 3 days. If you're using the pain killers and the Fentanyl for what they're designed to do kill pain and you're in chronic pain these two drugs are incredibly beneficial. I also smoke cannabis at the same time that I take a painkiller to help bring a painkillers effects on quicker, I'll also smoked about Midway through to increase the amount of painkiller relief I get from the pill when it starts to fade off and then I'll smoke it a little bit after that too and that'll also increase it and make the painkiller last for longer. There's also one other not even labeled as a drug in United States however it is in Mexico and in Europe. it's called DMSO it's an anti-inflammatory pain medication that is all natural. It has over 1,000 documented Medical uses. I believe it comes from the process of debarking trees. It's that sticky substance underneath the bark between the bark and the actual tree itself you can feel it on both the inside of the bark and the tree itself they refine that to 99.999 6% pure and that's where you want to get it. United States it's solid as a solvent do not be afraid of that label it has. I had the stuff for two months before I used it and I was very upset with myself for using it for 2 months longer of the pain and inflammation that I had which works great and my ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, neck, back did I leave anything out. if you can't get the painkillers DMSO you should be able to get anywhere I need internet Xterra weigh from chinese-made DMSO only get American-made or distilled processed I use DMSO. Com . Also the Cannabis you can get in most areas now that is something always worthy to check out also Kratom pills might be something to it is check out. I prefer DMSO over the Kratom I don't know if I haven't had the best Kratom out there or not. I certainly prefer cannabis over everything in fact I came off of 22 out of 29 prescriptions in the last five or six years. Only using cannabis to take place of all those drives. The problems didn't go away it's just I found something much better and safer to take place of dangerous drugs. I was on.
