Methadone is an outstanding example of a compound in which greatly different activity and addictiveness occur in the optical isomers.
In addition, studies on the addictiveness of the dextrorotatory isomers of 3-hydroxy-N-phenethylmorphinan and 3-methoxy-N-phenethyl-morphinan were thought to be of interest since both compounds, like d-methadone, had very low activities when compared with the l-isomers [ 4].
Drugs pertinent to evaluating the addictiveness of 7296A were administered orally in capsules as follows: placebos (starch flavoured with quinine); codeine sulfate, increasing from 200 to 1,500 mg daily; morphine sulfate, increasing from 40 to 240 mg daily; and d-3-methoxy-N-phenethylmorphinan (7296A), increasing from 180 to 1,200 mg daily.

 Addiction
Clinical leaders in recent years have attempted to tailor intervention approaches to specific influences that effect addictive behavior, using therapeutic interviews in an effort to discover factors that led a person to embrace unhealthy, addictive sources of pleasure or relief from pain.
The increased requirement for dopamine to maintain the same electrical activity is the basis of both physiological tolerance and withdrawal associated with addiction.
This pathway utilizes dopamine as a neurotransmitter and receives presynaptic input (from earlier in the circuit--it gets signals from these earlier in the circuit cells) from cells that respond to cannibinoids, nicotine (receptor subtype is nicotinic), and from cells that respond to endogenous opioid substances such as endorphins or enkephalins.

Anticipatory responses to a drug have previously been thought to be induced by a cue that leads to the addictive drug.
In this study, the reinforcement of the drug is due to the avoidance of the cue as proven previously, but also to the rate that the drug is self-administered.
Thus, we can see a relationship with the time frame the drug is taken to the addictiveness of the drug.

 MarijuanaNews.Com, Freedom has nothing to fear from the truth
Of course, in the hands of the appalling people who govern us, "addictiveness" is simply a term used to justify arresting people, especially the sick and dying who use medical marijuana.
Even though many widely used pharmaceuticals – not to mention alcohol and tobacco -- are commonly regarded as both "dangerous and addictive," a majority of the House of Representatives voted for a measure condemning the medical use of marijuana, saying that it is a "dangerous and addictive" drug.
Thus, addiction and addictiveness per se – or the lack thereof -are not considered sufficient for determining what will and will not be criminalized.

 OHSU Outlook - September/October 2003
"We believe that this study is a major step forward in understanding how addictive nicotine is delivered by tobacco smoke," said James Pankow, Ph.D., professor of environmental and biomolecular systems at OGI who has studied the chemistry of tobacco smoke for seven years.
"Since scientists have shown that a drug becomes more addictive when it is delivered to the brain more rapidly," Pankow continued, "free-base nicotine levels in cigarette smoke thus are at the heart of the controversy regarding the tobacco industry's use of additives like ammonia and urea, as well as blending choices in cigarette design."
Pankow notes that most addiction researchers believe that chemicals like nicotine, cocaine and methamphetamine become increasingly addictive the more rapidly they are delivered to the brain.
