Booze Without The Badness

There have been plenty of revelations regarding the harmfulness of alcohol in the last month or so. What we could do with is a way to experience the pleasurable aspects of inebriation (sociability, relaxation) without the unpleasent side effects (violence, memory loss, hangovers) – David Nutt of Bristol Univerity in the UK believes we could make a cocktail of drugs to create exactly this scenario. The health benefits sound great, but I’m willing to bet they can’t make the stuff taste like a fresh cool bottle of imported Grolsch. More’s the pity.
