1-A drug used by the masses in Aldulous Huxley's book A Brave New World. It would be used on a daly basis by the citizens of this futuristic society in small doses to dull the senses,or keep people impassive and unfeeling. In special circumstances, a high dosage treatment of Soma would be given to someone who feels unhappy,or otherwise emotional at all;this procedure would be reffered to as being "on holiday" because the person being treated with Soma would be in a state of stoic extacy(Soma is a pill).Soma is the perverbial tranqualizer of the masses,much like TV or POP culture is in this day and age.
2-Also a great song by The Strokes
3-A fabled Psychotropic(makes you high) plant supposedly found in India and used by the first intelluctual race of humans.
4-A herb smoked for relaxation, sold mostly in head shops as an alternative for marijuana.

Soma is a muscle relaxer that works by blocking pain sensations between the nerves and the brain. Typically prescribed to patients that have herniated discs to help with the muscle spasms and sleep.

When taken in large doses, it can act as a benzo. - especially when taken with food. When you eat something, it speeds up your metabolism, thus breaking it down into Meprobamate which is a basically a anxiolytic. - benzodiazepine.
Bro, i popped 4 somas last night, waited 5 minutes then ate some fast food. 5 minutes into eating my food I was out of it. It was as if I had taken a Xanax for the first time. I was throwed dawg!

Refers to the area that is south of Market Street (hence, "soma") in San Francisco, CA. Once strictly a gritty industrial neighborhood, the area has maintained the grit while developing into a thriving nightclub and residential/work-live loft area. Was also the location of many failed dot-com companies and is still home to a number of gay bars.
