This Is Your Brain On Drugs

Charlie Rose discusses with brain scientists the nature of addiction. There are a few commercials at the beginning.

Update: The NIDA woman just repeats the DEA line - drugs hijack the brain. She never explains why only 10% of those who try heroin ever become addicted. She also makes no mention of the fact that about 70% of female heroin users were sexually molested as children. Something she must know.

One of the most interesting and worthwhile hours I've spent. Thanks for bringing it to our attentions. I see this panel is engaged in a series of discussions and perhaps the questions regarding how how the brain seems to direct some and not others, perhaps as a way to cope with previous psychological or physical trauma or other organic condition. Ill certainly want to follow these explorations. Cheers
