What you see above is a prescription written for Whiskey written during the last Prohibition - indeed - at the bottom of the prescription you can see the words `National Prohibition Act' --- yes, those were in the good old days when the government at least told a smidgen of truth - calling a prohibition for what it was.
So, you say that you didn't know that prescriptions were written for whiskey and other alcohols? I wonder why --- it wouldn't be because the big media hasn't mentioned it - would it? That big media that is always watching out for us? LOL.
Below you will find links that speak about the current prohibition and the alcohol prohibition baby boomers grandparents talked about. OverZealous Government One - OverZealous Government Two.
