Why Our Great-Grandparents Have Such Fond Memories Of Their Youth..

By  | 

Growing up is getting tougher and tougher for today’s youth. I know there are a lot of things that are easier and I have always said that I would never be the guy who said when I was a kid I had to walk to school in the snow, up hill and into the wind.  Well, with this being said and we all know our great grandparents didn’t have colored TV sets or the internet, but I think they looked forward to getting sick.  Check this out.  TMTMTL@RollinSD.com

Why Our Great-Grandparents Have Such Fond Memories Of Their Youth..

A bottle of Bayer’s ‘Heroin’.

(I’m surprised that they remember anything!!)

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

Coco 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


Mariani wine (1875) was the most famous Coca wine of it’s 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.


Produced by the Maltine Manufacturing Company of NewYork.

It was suggested that you should take a full glass with or after every meal.

Children should only take half a glass.

A paper weight 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 a Toothache

Very popular for children in 1885.

Not only did they relieve the pain, they made the children very happy!

I’m surprised they could see straight enough to stack up those Lincoln Logs!

Opium for New-Borns

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

It’s no wonder they were called, ‘The Good Old Days’!!

From cradle to grave…

Everyone Was Stoned!!!

John is a badass motha fucka
