Text on Drugs ii

Text on Drugs ii, Second Installment:

I’m developing my own protocol – how dare I ? – simply because I have no idea what the protocol for the real /original Text on Things is .Proposed is the following: A sub-meme in a style suited to Text on Drugs because as far as I know I am the only one documenting the Text that is on Drugs and/ or medication samples, prescription bottles and/or promotional paraphernalia, as opposed to ‘things’.

(*F) = the preceding was French
(*E/F) = The preceding was English, then French
(*FF) = the following is a French translation of an ealier Text and will not be re-written.
