Science is busy trying to destroy a pillar of the Los Angeles lifestyle — cocaine.
From the AP:
“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.”
This is not only going to destroy the underground economy, but also the above ground businesses that are dependent on cocaine here in the Southland. Places like rehab and night club toilet tank cleaners.
