well to change the topic I think that love pills already exists (MDMA and it's analogues) unfortunately it has some side effects, and it's believed that chronic use can lead to neuronal damage although no conclusive data has been show of it's neurotoxicity on humans, unfortunately these kind of drugs are ilegal and research is prohibited, but fortunately MDMA and analogues action is similar to some serotonin affecting antidepressants, and I hope further research leaves to safer and more effective drugs.
It is interesting to note that MDMA is not just the love drug it has many interesting effects, like the reduction of agressiveness, improved outlook, easiness to solve problems, improved self esteem, it's also very effective for some people against addiction, if you've been paying attention these are the qualities that many antidepressants have and my guess is that is because they have more in common that what people thinks, LSD also affects serotonin so this might explain why some users find some of these positive effects with that drug, hopefully further research leads to the discovery of some really useful, powerful and safe mind altering chemicals.
it is really a very interesting era to live in!
