The addiction cage.

/The addiction cage.

Really good visual comic about the Rat Park drug experiment, which aimed to study the relationship between drug addiction and social inclusion.

Also known as the “why don’t most people who get given morphine in hospitals turn into heroin addicts?” experiment. Spoiler alert: because drug addiction is just as much, if not more, about the social context of the user as it is about the chemical effects of the drug itself.
