On this issue of Retro Jojo, I take a look back at the cold medicine aisle at the old mom and pop drug store growing up.

Sure, a lot of the things we took for a cold back then are now illegal (I'm lookin' at you, codeine), but they sure were effective.

The key was to control the intake of cough syrup so you didn't end up like Laurie from That '70s Show.
