We’d never have thought that Queen Victoria could have ever taken cocaine
New timeline: Yup, Queen Victoria took cocaine
Before the war on drugs madness, you could casually buy cocaine, opium and arsenic in the 19th century.
It was common in the day. Queen Victoria liked it in her chewing gum. Arthur Conan Doyle liked it too, and Robert Louis Stephenson wrote “Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” on a 6-day coke bender.
The Queen’s true favorite though, was Laudanum.
