Cocaine Gene

Via TalkLeft comes this article at the BBC.
The Institute of Psychiatry has identified a gene variant that may increase the likelihood of dependence on cocaine.
This is not a particular surprise to me. There’s always been some evidence that susceptibility to abuse of various substances (alcohol and other drugs) has been linked to genetics. It’s important to note, however, that genetic predisposition seems not to be automatic, but may rather influence a person to lean a particular way.
