“The Friendly Pepper Upper.” is a slogan from Dr Pepper from the 1950’s. Dr. Pepper advertised in its hay-day that it was a pick me up and people should drink them when they are feeling low and tired. Methamphetamine is a upper, and made from cocaine but it is also highly addictive and does damage to your brain and body and is not “A Friendly Picker Upper.” you should just drink a Dr Pepper instead.
