      This is such an awesome study! Really goes to show how the results of the original study could be misconstrued to demonstrate the dangers of drugs instead of the devastating effects of being trapped in a miserable environment.

      When inhabiting a “rat park,” they remarkably preferred the plain water. Even when they did imbibe from the drug-filled bottle, they did so intermittently, not obsessively, and never overdosed. A social community beat the power of drugs.
