    1906:The Pure Food and Drug Act requires that certain specified drugs, including alcohol, cocaine, heroin, morphine, and cannabis, be accurately labeled with contents and dosage. Previously many drugs had been sold as patent medicines with secret ingredients or misleading labels. Cocaine, heroin, cannabis, and other such drugs continued to be legally available without prescription as long as they were labeled. It is estimated that sale of patent medicines containing opiates decreased by 33% after labeling was mandated.[2] 1925: United States supported regulation of cannabis as a drug in the International Opium Convention.[5] and by the mid-1930s all member states had some regulation of cannabis. 1932: Democrat Franklin Roosevelt ran for President of the United States promising repeal of federal laws of Prohibition of alcohol.

    Ha! love the pic they have for this 'Vintage songs about cocaine and heroin' Glad to see some things never seem to go out of style. They were kinda writing for a niche market. 'Say Pa did you hear that new hit song about shooting smack?'
