In this kind of opinion question, you have to decide what you think. You would have to decide what the definition of true happiness is; in the world of the 21st century, there are plenty of drugs like soma that could make people believe they had achieved true happiness. Is it possible? Probably if you know for sure what you mean by happiness.

Drugs like Soma induce feelings of complacency and false contentment or what people believe to be happiness. They dull the senses and promote dependency, in that people want to continuously be free of everyday worries. People who believe themselves to be happy don't question why they aren't. Thus, true happiness through drugs is not attainable.
