Can You Get High on Soma?

You might be thinking of Aldous Huxley’s fictional hallucinogen, one of several video game or anime characters, or even your favorite Australian dark-ambient band, but I am referring to none of those things here.

Soma, for the purposes of this exploration, is Carisoprodol, a muscle relaxant with barbiturate-like effects. The Soma high is similar to taking sedatives and has led to a growing level of detailed abuse. At least we know going in that this one has some actual recreational value, no?
