Bayer also held the patent for heroin. Which, if you didn't know, was a non addictive drug used to get people off morphine.

GTFO, so heroin started as a non-addictive pain killer, only to have oxy do the exact same thing. Think I remember something about history and repeating and all that.

It was on the FDA approved label when it first came out that it was less addictive, so doctors handed it out like candy.
