If you’re a fan of American TV shows, you would’ve probably heard of the new Netflix original Narcos. Based on the life of the Colombian king of coke, Pablo Escobar, it takes you through a time in 70s America where cocaine and money would just flow like water. With one in 10 adults using drugs on a regular basis in 1979, the American consumer was shooting an estimated $420 million per week into Pablo’s pockets. With almost everyone using, it became important to distinguish oneself from the next person snorting coke. The ways and means to do this became a status symbol and the paraphernalia market boomed.

Based on the facts provided on the show, some fans got down to look for some of the advertisements between 1976 and 1981 that would shamelessly promote the dangerous drug in magazines, newspapers, and elsewhere.

Wonder where censorship was back then.

All these adverts, and more were originally posted on The World’s Best Ever
