prisonIn one of the most Orwellian developments I’ve heard in recent years, the Blair government is seriously considering giving new babies an injection at birth of a new drug, developed by major drug companies and currently in clinical trials, that takes away all the pleasure from addictive drugs. The reason given for making this mandatory for all new babies is that it will help in the war against drugs. It basically renders the brain incapable of registering euphoria.

I heard this on all-news radio this morning, but there is almost nothing on the Internet about it.

If it’s true, then if you ever doubted we live in a huge ghastly prison of our own making, now you know.

If it’s not true (tell me it’s not true!) please point me to where it’s debunked.

This ranks up alongside the Bush plan to test, isolate, and ‘treat’ all American children who show signs of ‘anti-social’ behaviour.

    Wasn’t it an Englishman who wrote Brave New World? We’re there.

    Good Goddess! This is obscene (as is Bush’s little number). Can they really do this???Is it time to relocate to another planet yet?

  3. Dave Pollard says:

    I smell a scam here. There still isn’t much coverage of this. And the professor pushing it is named Nutt? And the acronym for the agency mentioned is ‘B-SAD’? If this story isn’t fraudulent, it’s really bizarre. Methinks somebody is putting us all on. Anyone got more on this?

  4. Ton Zijlstra says:

    Well there seems to be a prof. David Nutt at Bristol Univ. in the neuroscience department:

  5. Ton Zijlstra says:

    On BSAD frontpage there is a link, apparantly to the newsitem in question, but……the links doesn’t work, and is differently formed from other links on that page. Could still be a hoax, played on BSAD

  6. Frank Quist says:

    Well, ‘Nutt’ has appeared in other news too, in what seems to be the same position. news does spread awfully slowly. This google search gets 3 results, not counting copies of one and the same news message:

    [But] the ethical perspective does need to be looked at closely.”Nice of Mr. Hinchliffe to mention this. He seems to be the only concerned. <Sigh>

  8. Sorin says:

    I’m sorry, but I fail to see the cause of alarm. The news Dave linked to reads”Doctors believe the childhood jab would block the euphoric effects of drugs later in life, rendering useless narcotics such as heroin and cocaine.”Which is quite different from Dave’s interpretation:”It basically renders the brain incapable of registering euphoria.”The latter lacks ” … in response to drugs such as heroin and cocaine”.I realize this is a cause of concern, and needs public debate and scrutiny. But “relocating to another planet” ? … Isn’t this a bit over-reacting ?

  9. Michael says:

    Disturbing news, Dave. I’ll start researching this too.

    Either a hoax or somebody blowing hot air, probably Tony Blair. Anything that blocked the effect of narcotics would render some painkillers useless. The drug, if it even exists, is in trials. Most drugs never make it through initial trials. The effects of such a drug, if it exists, would likely be temporary. How many drugs are there that have life long effects with one administration? I haven’t even mentioned the legal ramifications. Cool it, folks.

  11. It seems that the last comment by Catana is quite correct. Here is an indication from one of the articles, that was re-taken in a New Zealand paper:”Childhood immunisation would provide adults with protection from the euphoria that is experienced by users, making drugs such as heroin and cocaine pointless to take. Such vaccinations are being developed by pharmaceutical companies and are due to hit the market within two years.”Ref: New Zealand Herald
