Whom do you trust?

Trust much?

May 8, 1886.

Coca-Cola® was first sold at Jacob’s Pharmacy in Atlanta, GA. John Pemberton believed that the drink could cure many diseases including morphine addiction, dyspepsia and neurasthenia.

If you had the supposed cure for certain diseases what would hold you back from sharing your discovery?

I suppose you could be surrounded by unscrupulous madmen who seek to destroy you and your discoveries at any cost.

But who is to blame for that?

    David, there’s a hidden meaning here?
    PS. I know another fella who leaves posts open ended sometimes.

      Not really a hidden meaning. Visited the World of Coca-Cola yesterday with some friends and this just hit me. Sometimes trust means taking huge risks.

      And I know that fella too.

        David, guess I was (and still am) a little dense on this one. 🙂

          It would seem that Asa Candler didn’t trust anyone so he controlled the ingredients of the formula for Coca-Cola, he hid the records and he had the only key. It appears that he didn’t trust anyone with his secret. Yet he shared the product with everyone.

          Did his lack of trust stem from the people he called friends? Maybe.
