Aspirin and Heroin were trademarked by Bayer Corporation

Today according to Australian Eastern Standard Time when this item was posted
1899 The Bayer corporation registered Aspirin (invented by chemist Felix Hoffmann) as a trademark. Another of their trademarks: Heroin (synthesized by Hoffman eleven days after he synthesized Aspirin), which Bayer energetically marketed as a non-addictive treatment for morphine addiction. Surely a suitable case for millions in reparations, should addicts, lawyers and workers in the drug treatment and rehabilitation industry put their heads together.
