    What drug that hasn't been invented yet is the world in need of most in your opinion?

    I'm not talking about chasing the dragon or snorting satan's dandruff. I'm talking cures for illnesses and disorders.

    If you could invent one, which would it be?

    Think cures for cancer, cures for AIDS, cures for hate, cures for baldness, cures for cellulite, cures for retardation/Downs Syndrome, cures for laziness, cures for obnoxiousness, high sex drive reducers, anti aging remedies, anger management drugs, etc, etc....

    I'd do hate. I think it's worse than depression, and contributes to it... Loneliness is a common feature on this forum, and if everyone were friendlier and more open we'd all be much happier, whether we were depressed to start or not.

    A happy drug that has no side effects in short or longterm. No hangover. And is so easy to make, you can do it yourself.

    One DRUG? It would be the size of an egg! Chop it up into small pieces and cure the most debilitating physical illness,cancer and the most debilitating psychological illness, depression. Seriously though, it's a tough choice, so I'd have to go with a cancer drugl.

    GOOD THREAD!

    That's hard to top. I'd say, hypothetically speaking, a cure for ignorance, for that is the root of all troubles in my opinion (or a big enough chunk of them anyway).

    Literally speaking I'd say HIV/AIDS.

    I'd invent a pill that cured obesity. That would knock out a good chunk of premature deaths right there.

    Good call, especially seeing that it's a growing problem.

    I think a pill that cures ignorance would solve the vast majority of the world's social and moral problems.

    I've been thinking about this one a lot over the past few days and I think I'm gonna go with a testosterone reducer.

    Obviously sport would suffer, but I think some of the most inhumane acts ever committed on Earth were born from too much testosterone. Wars, street fights, rapes, genocides, bullying, are nearly always down to too much testosterone.

    Even women that kill are killing their abusive boyfriends or husbands in most cases.

    I wished I could reduce my own testosterone somehow. I know I have too much, but I can control myself.

    I would "invent" a drug with a euphoria effect that somehow has no risk for dependency. Which is unlikely, but this euphoria would last for hours. For some reason the US government hates euphoria effect, guess feeling to good is bad?!
