Inventors of Heroin Look to Buy Monsanto
MISSOURI & GERMANY (May 19) - Germany's Bayer corporation is looking to buy St Louis' Monsanto. It's the biggest Midwestern takeover rumor since the Bass Pro Shop - Cabela's talk. Bayer makes common drugs (notably aspirin), but also invented heroin (which it marketed heroin as a children's drug in the early 20th Century). Now that heroin is illegal, they're looking to buy the company that makes RoundUp.
