Methedrine

Did you know that beginning in the late 1950’s, doctors in San Francisco considered methamphetamine a cure for heroin addiction?

 

oh, yes they did.

 

Methedrine was the brandname for methamphetamine, an injectable made by Burroughs-Well-come until 1963.

 

“Injectable Methedrine was prescribed for treatment of heroin addiction by a few San Francisco physicians and that created concern among San Francisco’s medical community and law enforcement.”
