Halp -- how do I ethically drug my cat to make him (temporarily) nicer / less of an asshole?

My adorable but bratty kitty has a callback for a Whiskas commerical on Wednesday afternoon. He's 8 years old, slim but not fat, pretty face but needs an attitude adjustment. He'll tolerate being held but I'm concerned he won't sit still. Is there some way I can drug him to make him a little more stationary and friendly without totally putting him to sleep? He sleeps on the heat vent often and gets very cuddly and tolerates being touched, so I know it's somewhat possible. Is this something I could ask a vet without being turned in to the SPCA? I DO NOT want to harm him in any way, I just want to de-anxiety-ify him for a few hours. Make him nicer and cuddlier without making him pass out.
caveat: I really do believe I am a good person, but I would not be against using some illegal substances here. Pot? MDMA? My first thought was melatonin, which the internet says is OK for animals in small doses (and a small dose is what I'm looking for here). Does anyone have any experience?
