Re: Was Hitler a Hippie


He was given drugs by his doctor after failed assassination attempt to ease pain. He got addicted of course. Take in mind however that these drugs, especially new synthetic drugs were used relatively widely in that time and people were probably not that aware of their adverse effects. Another famous 3th. Reich addict was Goring, second man after Hitler and designated successor. Synthetic drugs were distributed relatively widely also to troops at battlefield. Usually in form of pills. Synthetic drugs are still used in military probably in fairly high numbers.

Nice article here: "This is Your War on Drugs" by Gary Brecher

Re: Was Hitler a Hippie


& we have the Vegetarianism & sexual experimentation rumors & hangin out in Gay bars. As to drugs, some say he did em way back in the 30's


Earnest Pretzsche, a book dealer, introduced Hitler to a psychedelic drug containing mescaline and peyote. This produced clairvoyant visions that made Hitler believe he had opened the door the the reigns of supernatural powers, powers he could use for his own purposes.

He was an artist too, just not a very good one or history would probably have turned out a lot more peaceful in the 30's and 40's.
