A Nicotine Vaccine?

Scientists are developing a nicotine vaccine that, with just one injection, will prevent the pleasure-triggering chemicals in tobacco from ever reaching the brain. The vaccine is still being tested in the lab, but researchers are hopeful that human trials are just a few years away.

Cool idea. I think it should be a person's choice if it does work. I do worry that since it affects the brain, how safe can it be?

I would hope this "vaccine" will be harmless and have no side effects. Too often the pharmaceutical drugs prescribed to treat the symptoms of diseases have worse side effects than the illness they are prescribed for. It would be such a God send if it really works and helps people quit smoking, as long as it will not cause some other kind of harm to them.
