These Vintage Cocaine Ads Remind Us How Insane the ’70s Were

An Imgur gallery of cocaine paraphernalia advertisements went viral today on Reddit. The gallery consists of several posters of tools for the once extremely popular drug.

Today, the prominent drug is marijuana with the legalization of the plant in several states and smoke shops set up just about every half block, but in the late 70s and throughout the 80s, the beast on the streets was cocaine.

Several ads taken from drug magazines from 1976 to 1982 published by art and culture publication The World’s Best Ever went viral. Check out some of the photos below and let us know if any blow your mind.
