This is a joke, right?

If not, I know some marketing genius who deserves to get fired over the fact that there is apparently an actual drug named Soma. I swear, does no one take English classes any more?

Soma is a happy drug. Helped me out with my back trouble. And it's sold over the counter (or OTC, which is apparently the hip new way to say it) in Mexico, so I have my Yuma-dwelling grandparents buy it when my back acts up.

Inspired by last night's NPL-list spam?

Probably some marketer read the book, said "Hey, good name," and put it onto the list of suggestions for the latest analgesic.

It's the anti-inflammatory of the people.
