If this is true, then it speaks volume of the negative effects of illegal narcotics.

According to a 47-page World War II American Military Intelligence dossier, infamous dictator of the Third Reich, Adolf Hitler, was addicted to crystal meth.

In addition, Hitler apparently took over 74 medications, raging from uppers to downers, from sedatives to stimulants.

The report is the subject of a new British documentary, Hitler's Hidden Drug Habit, which will air on Sunday, October 19th on Channel 4.

It stipulates that Hitler became addicted to drugs after a meeting with Berlin-based doctor Thoedor Morell, an unorthodox doctor whose clientele consisted mainly of Jews. He, however, was able to join the Nazi party in 1933 and eventually treated a friend of the dictator's, photographer Henrich Hoffman.

During a chance encounter, Hitler befriended the doctor and requested that he become his personal physician.

Under Morell's guidance, Hitler began taking an inordinate amount of drugs. According to the report, the Nazi leader took meth before his speeches, when he needed the most energy, was on barbiturate tranquilizers to battle his insomnia, and was prescribed Coramine stimulants whenever he was in a nearly-comatose state.

He was also given cocaine-based nasal and eye drops, testosterone injections containing extracts of a bull's semen, heart, and liver, and as mentioned, methamphetamines.

According to this report, he makes Jordan Belfort seem like a choir boy.

It appears much of the evidence for this claim comes from Morell's diary, where several excerpts relay his prescriptions to the Fuehrer, and also suggested that Hitler was showing sign's of Parkinson's disease a few years into the war.

According to Bill Panagopoulos, an American collector who discovered the dossier, reports The Independent, “Morell was a quack and a fraud and a snake oil salesman.” “He should not have been practicing medicine anywhere outside a veterinary clinic."

“Some [of the drugs] were innocuous, some not so innocuous, some poisonous. Did he develop a dependence on any of these drugs? Which of these drugs, if any, were addictive? And did he become addicted to them? I’d be interested to know what the combination of these medications would do to someone who’s otherwise in good health,” he added.

Tune in to watch Hitler's Hidden Drug Habit this Sunday evening.
