Nicotine Is the New Wonder Drug

maverick41 Re:'medicine' (439 comments)

Consider this: once upon a time, opium was found to have positive uses (dental anesthetic.) It was also widely used recreationally.

When opium was found to be harmul, 'refined' opium (aka morphine) was developed, and found to have positive uses (cure for opium and alcohol addition.)

When morphine was found to be harmful, 'refined' morphine (aka heroin) was developed, and found to have positive uses (childrens' cough syrup!)

Recently, when nicotine was found to be harmful, 'refined' nicotine was developed, and found to be effective on people suffering from ADHD, Alzheimers', anxiety, schizophrenia, and anger management.
