Drunk Without Distress

How many of us would love to be able to get drunk without having to worry about the negative side effects, such as actually having to consume booze in the first place?  They don’t call it “beer gut” because it’s sexy.  And don’t even get me started on the lovely list of hangover remedies that people have developed to try and appease the angry Party Gods who insist on driving ice picks into your temples the day after.

Downward Dog? More like Sick as a Dog, am I right?

 

Well according to Professor David Nutt, he may have come up with something that will let people not only get drunk without drinking, but will also provide the antidote which will “sober” the person up so they can drive home afterward.

Nutt, a neuropsychopharmacologist at Imperial College London and former drugs advisor to the U.K. government, said the drug would be consumed as a cocktail drink and targets neurotransmitters in the brain to mimic the pleasurable effects of drunkenness, The Independent reported.

It could quickly be reversed by taking an antidote, allowing users to sober up and drive home or even return to work after a faux-boozy lunch.

I can see many companies trying to roadblock this, companies that rhyme with “Smudweider” for example.  But it’ll definitely be worth keeping an eye on.

I didn’t even touch the fact that something as insane as this was invented by a guy named Nutt.  Hooray for me.
