In 1865 opium was grown in the state of Virginia and a product was distilled from it that yielded 4 percent morphine

In 1867 it was grown in Tennessee: six years later it was cultivated in Kentucky. During these years opium, marijuana and cocaine could be purchased legally over the counter from any druggist.
Makes me long for the good old days....LOL...when Coca-Cola really had Coke in it...... .

After Midnight huh...... .
