Common Sense

PERHAPS the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not yet sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favor; a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defence of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason. -Thomas Paine (1737-1809). Common Sense, 1776

New drug treatment for cannabinoid addicts

. . . Sweet, fatty foods like chocolate can trigger an addiction in vulnerable people, rewarding them for ingesting such goodies with the release of pleasure inducing opiates in the brain, studies have indicated --Science News, June 17, 1995, p. 374.

Now, pharmacologists at the Neurosciences Institute in San Diego report finding that chocolate contains not only its own cannabinoid--a compound that resembles the ingredient in marijuana (cannabis) that induces euphoria--but also a pair of related chemicals that could prolong any pleasurable sensations elicited by a cannabinoid. --Science News, October 12, 1996, p.235.
I guess we'd better get ready to spend a lot more money for prisons, etc. -- the average American eats more than eleven pounds of chocolate every year!!  --THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE, Number 18, November 15, 1996., Please Protect Me --- From Myself!, By L. Reichard White

But now there's help!

I like the inhaler that fools the brain into believing that you have had chocolate without actually eating it or obtaining the calories. My question is why can't we create something similar that will make the brain think your are using the drug you are addicted to when you are not, unless something like this already exists
