Popping Pills for Fun and Profit!

You may think that the notion that a pill can solve all your problems is absurd. Well, you would be wrong, at least according to CNN. Yes, that's right, it's the all-new Miracle Pill©! You think you've heard it all before, but no. Let's take a look at everything the drug maker claims that this super-fantastic pill can do:
  • "lose weight"
  • "quit smoking"
  • "block the effects of marijuana"
  • "fight relapse in alcohol and cocaine abuse
  • "blocks the effect of the natural endocannabinoids"
Okay I have no clue what that last one is supposed to mean. But seriously. Does anybody else have a little bit of a hard time putting their faith in this wonder drug? And even assuming that it does work, wouldn't you just kick the addiction to booze or fags and replace it with an addiction to the magic pills?

As if all these outrageous claims weren't enough, it comes from a French pharmaceutical firm. That's the nail in the coffin, as far as I'm concerned.
