Research Facts
Parke-Davis and Company was founded in Detroit, Michigan by Dr. Samuel P. Duffield, a physician and pharmacist. In 1860 Dr. Duffield owned a small drugstore at the corner of Gratiot and Woodward Avenues. Dr. Duffield made a variety of pharmaceutical preparations, including Hoffman’s anodyne and mercurial ointment, but was overwhelmed by the operations of the business.
In 1871 the company sent expeditions to Central and South America and the West Indies in search of medicinal plants. The company produced an herbal laxative drug Cascara found from Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest

Research Facts
Beginning in the 19th century, patients suffering from shortness of breath could purchase anti-asthma cigarettes and powders that usually contained stramonium (stinkweed) or potash, but sometimes also included narcotics. These cigarettes contained no tobacco. Preparations such as Asthmador Cigarettes and other brands were marketed aggressively and sold over the counter in most Western countries to relieve the distress of bronchial asthmatic paroxysms. Although critics complained that these cigarettes increased bronchial inflammation, by the beginning of the 20th century, smoking was often the first line of treatment for asthmatics.
