    Smithsonian on prescription booze during prohibition

    Every once in a while I surface, and this time it's to share this cool interactive piece from the Smithsonian Magazine about prescription liquor during prohibition. There is reproduction of a prescription form with clickable bullseyes for details on various parts such as instructions for use.

    How about these instructions? "Take three ounces every hour for stimulant until stimulated."

    I'd say that's very good advice.

    Thanks. It's too late to edit it, so let's see if this works:
