Bye, Bye Coke(aine)

HOUSTON—Two Baylor College of Medicine researchers in Houston are working on a cocaine vaccine they hope will become the first-ever medication to treat people hooked on the drug. "For people who have a desire to stop using, the vaccine should be very useful," said Dr. Tom Kosten, a psychiatry professor who is being assisted in the research by his wife, Therese, a psychologist and neuroscientist. "At some point, most users will give in to temptation and relapse, but those for whom the vaccine is effective won't get high and will lose interest."

I'm not so sure that people that are hooked have a desire to stop using and abusing.


  1. There are those who are hooked and have no desire to quit, but there are many who are hooked, but simply don't have the will power to end their habit.

  2. No, if they tried it in the first place then that is their problem. Let them die for all I care. Decarlo delenda est.

  3. "there are many who are hooked, but simply don't have the will power to end their habit."

    Survival of the fittest. It's fine if you help people who become sick or are born with certain defects but when you extend a hand to the morons of the world and allow them to poison the gene pool, you my friend, are an idiot.
