As per an Internet auctioneers write-up:
BOWMAN MELL & CO. - TOLUHERAS SYRUP BOTTLE
CANNABIS HEROIN CHLOROFORM 9% ALCOHOL MAGIC ELIXIR!
An empty 6" tall Bowman, Mell & Co. Toluheras Syrup bottle with main ingredients being heroin, cannabis and chloroform, nice cocktail. Throw in 9% Alcohol as label reads, this elixir just gets better. Original cork is intact, raised letters on back near top seem to read 3iv. Bottle's in great condition, no chips, cracks anywhere.
YES, NOTE THAT one of the ingredients is indeed HEROIN. Which makes this bottle a strong candidate for our “CANNABIS MEDICINES THAT WE ALL WISH HAD NEVER BEEN” section. And please, for those young people out there; -- Just because a medicine once had Medical Cannabis DOES NOT MEAN that it was a good medicine.
