Newly released documents suggest Adolf Hitler had a serious drug problem, which could shed light on his mental state during World War II.

Hitler took 74 kinds of substances, including the much-talked about drug Methamphetamine, according to Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper, which cites a dossier put together by the American military intelligence community.

At a well-known meeting in Italy in July 1943 between the German chancellor and Benito Mussolini – in which Hitler supposedly lectured the Italian dictator for hours – he was believed to have been under the influence of the highly addictive stimulant.

As the Second World War was ending, Hitler allegedly injected Vitamultin, which contains Methamphetamine, while in his bunker, where he spent the final months of his life.

The 47-page collection of documents also tears apart some myths pertaining to personal aspects to Hitler’s life, such as whether he was missing a testicle or was a homosexual (no and no, according the report).
