Suddenly not being under the influence of narcotics or alcohol would become a criminal offence. Can't kill if you can't think (hard enough).

It's a lot like the Equilibrium. Only with booze instead of Prozium.

Nah, Lithium's legal man. Why allow alcohol and narcotics if you can just require the populace to get on the already legal but expensive and big Pharma pushed mind-numbing drugs?

Because:

1. it was supposed to be for sci-fi story purposes. (Also, no-one said 'no slapstick.')

2. Isn't the effective dosage of lithium just slightly below renal toxicity?

3. Try taking the booze away from people who can kill you with a thought.
