Piso began selling homemade medications and in 1864, with the help of a local doctor, created “Piso's Cure for Consumption” (tuberculosis). In 1869, he founded the Piso Company to market his concoction on a national level. Piso's Cure contained at various times opium, morphine, hashish, marijuana, chloroform and alcohol.
