War on Drugs--War on Pleasure?

In a case of the cure being worse than the disease, the British government is apparently considering giving babies innoculations that "would block the euphoric effects of drugs later in life, rendering useless narcotics such as heroin and cocaine."

I'm not a fan or user of recreational drugs, but I think the Brits should serious consider the following questions before going ahead with this:
  • Do they think the real problem with the Nazis was that they didn't go far enough?
  • Why don't they work half as hard at improving their own happiness as they do at preventing others from being happy?
  • Have they seriously considered where the CIA is supposed to get alternative funding if their drug-running operations dry up? And, of course,
  • What the Cheney?
