High Hitler: how Nazi drug abuse steered the course of history

Stashed in: History!, Awesome, Nazis

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

The entire Nazi war machine, including Hitler, was taking methamphetamines, cocaine, and oxycodone on a daily basis during the blitzkrieg. Modern armies no longer march on their stomachs, they march on their pharmaceuticals.

Addictive drugs probably saved us all. Perhaps opioids have a place in history, too.
