50's Drug Ads, Not That Different Than Today Just Creepier

An antispasmodic and a sedative, cool. Those fifties chicks sure knew how to medicate, big on the barbiturates. It sounds calming but just looking at those creepy dolls is making me want something to take the edge off, hmmm, maybe I could ask my doc for some Butibel.

There are times when the Valley of the Dolls looks appealing.

Why are they at the Exchange Department? What are they exchanging? Rubbish drugs for barbituates?

Aha - barbis for Barbies!

It does seem a bit Stepford doesn't it?

Oh don't I know it. I'm not much of a drinker and don't smoke anything these days but if I had a pharmacy at my disposal, I know I could get in trouble pretty quick.
