Company Recalls Herbal Cough Syrup That Contains Morphine

Postby John Q. Public » Fri Jan 22, 2016 6:22 am

Attention opiate fans!

Probably less to the story than what your imagination might come up with, but Master Herbs, Inc. of Pomona is recalling its Licorice Coughing Liquid because it contains what they say is a "tiny" amount of freaking morphine. Hey, it's organic, I guess. Rush on down to your local Chinese herb store before it's all gone.

When a bunch of us got food poisoning in basic training, they gave us paregoric to drink. They said it would stop the diarrhea. It did, and it did much more...refills were available. It too tasted like licorice. GI gin was also a fav of airmen with colds...terpin hydrate...alcohol and codeine.

Doctors at Pomona Valley Hospital said they are seeing more people getting sick because they are taking compounds that are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.

I'm thinking this must be a relatively new hospital considering the numbers of Californians who have been taking compounds that are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration for quite some time....:)

It's one of the oldest hospitals in the area. They're probably seeing an uptick because of all the feriners who are moving in.

LWV is rapidly changing its demographic as well. The feriners sure like to play golf. Local golf cart dealers are doing quite well.

And tennis. Seems like we have as many tennis courts in town as we do swimming pools. I don't recall seeing anybody actually using one, though.

Yeah, the local high school's golf team is better than the football team. Much better. Especially the girls.
