TIL people are working on vaccines for cannabis: pubs.acs.org/doi/pdf/10.1021/j

Yes really: they want to induce your body to generate antibodies that will destroy the active ingredients in fairly harmless recreational drugs. I'm sure that's driven by a genuine desire to balance harms and benefits, and not a cynical attempt at extracting money from the war on drugs. πŸ˜‚

They've even developed a way to administer them by vaping(!!). That could work well to give them secretly, against peoples' will...
