Mickey Mouse and the Medicine Man

In case you are, like myself, fascinated by the historical relationship of drugs and popular media, this one’s just right for you. Apparently, back in 1951, Walt Disney released a Mickey Mouse comic book where Mickey and Goofy discover a drug called peppo, which makes you want to mow the lawn, paint the house and do other amazing stuff people were probably too lazy to do even in the fifties. See for yourself how it leads them to an angry hash dealer and a talking royal elephant.
