Abstract

Irrespective of the animal-rights issues you discuss, we disagree with your one-dimensional view that addiction is a disease, and with your claim that this view is not particularly controversial among scientists (Nature 506,5; 2014). Neuroscience has been widely documented as just one of many important influences in drug addiction.
