In their latest video, AJ+ takes a look at the history of drugs in America and it's pretty cray cray!
A little over a century ago, America's druggies were SO hardcore and got "high" off coffee and tea. Say what? Yeah, they were getting high off the caffeine that is often in these popular drinks.
The 1920s brought on booze. But there was one problem for drunkards: Prohibition in America banned the sale of booze. However, gangsters and bootleggers found their way around that restriction, and produced it on the black market.
Marijuana had been popular in the 1930s and had resurgence in the 1960s.
In the '90s, club drugs, like ecstasy, fueled the party scene. These drugs let club-goers party all damn night with feelings of connection and euphoria according to the video.
After prescription pills dominated much of the '90s and 2000s, heroin made a quick resurgence onto the drug scene. Heroin use has more than doubled in the past decade.
