If you do not know what I am talking about it is that patent medicines are bad for your health.
Some of the effects of cocaine are blurred vision, elevated heart rate and breathing, decrease in appetite, fever, and paranoia. The effects of heroin are scarred or collapsed veins, bacterial infections of the blood vessels and heart valves, lung complications, and arthritis. The effects alcohol and morphine are nausea, anxiety, numbs your senses, sickness, depression, liver and kidney problems, and fits. The effects of cannabis are blood shot eyes, increased appetite, risk of cancer of the head, lungs, and neck, low sperm count for men, and high testosterone levels for women.
