Concept.png Morphine 
Morphin - Morphine.svg
Start 1804
A pain killing drug which is widely used recreationally. Physically addictive.


Morphine was first isolated between 1803 and 1805 by Friedrich Sertürner, probably the first isolation of an active ingredient from a plant.


The CIA used morphine in its mind control research projects MK Ultra. Subjects were forcibly addicted to it and then forcibly subjected to withdrawl in order to put them in a vulnerable state. By and large the project was a failure.


About 70% of morphine is used to make other opioids such as hydromorphone, oxycodone and heroin.
