Neuroscientists know what drugs actually make people feel better; unfortunately, most are criminalized or tightly controlled. American culture is so conflicted about "feeling good".
We limit access to substances that produce that puritanical bugaboo, 'euphoria'; but peddle an endless supply of preposterous books and CDs that promise instant Utopia if we only think positive thoughts that will attract endless material wealth and emotional health. Our culture is best summed up by the fact that researchers are working on eliminating the euphoric properties of pain killers; even on our death beds, we mustn't find our opiates pleasurable.

I've always said -- study the pharmacokinetics of coccaine and create a less neurotoxic version of it.
