    Dr. Nora Volkow, Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, has studied the neural pathways of addiction and believes that we've got to protect our brains.
    Much of her research and advocacy is focused upon shattering current myths surrounding drug addiction such as:

    1. Marijuana is not addictive
    2. Prescription medications are always safe
    3. You can control your addiction

    This cluster of myths can be investigated by focusing on how the brain creates and responds to dopamine.

    That was a good 1 minute or so video. Those 3 myths are very dangerous...the marijuana that is grown today is much more powerful than that in the 60's.
    Nutrition therapy can help addictions — Vitamin C and amino acid therapy (Julia Ross has so much information in her book The Mood Cure.
