What Brand Am I

It’s the holiday season and time for a quick “What Brand Am I”

So here we go…

heroin

Well it turns out that Heroin–the nasty drug was invented and marketed in 1895 by a German company as a morphine substitute. The name Heroin comes from the German Heroisch meaning heroic. And I am here to say that so many junkies look heroic. And, Heroin was an over-the-counter drug. WOW! But without the bad side effects of morphine. Whoops –kind a screwed that one up.

But who was this company?

bayer_heroin

Yes, Bayer.

The inventor of aspirin.

Who knew?
