Merck Popularized Cocaine: German Pharma Corporation Worked With Sigmund Freud
(Era of Wisdom) Did you know that Sigmund Freud played a strong role in popularizing cocaine? He worked with German pharmaceutical company Merck, now one of the world’s largest vaccine producers (the U.S. subsidiary which became its own company).
Merck began importing thousands of kilos of “crude cocaine” to Germany for processing into cocaine hydrochloride, by the first few years of the 20th Century, after a major spike in cocaine profits 1885- 1886.
According to Narconon:
“In 1887, the US Surgeon General recommended that cocaine be used to treat depression, claiming that there was no such thing as cocaine addiction.”
This Germanic culture of chemical corporations, pharmaceutical corporations, formed a piece of the foundation of allopathic medicine. This is the same culture from which big pharma giants BASF and Bayer emerged in the 1860’s.
