To move towards this goal, Norwegian scientists published a study claiming that psychedelics are not linked to long-term mental health problems; these findings, however, were quickly challenged.

Dose of Science: The probability and predictors of substance abuse

Only a fraction of drug users will ever translate from drug use to drug dependence, yet substance abuse is a great burden, both on the individual and society. Unfortunately, our thinking about addiction is much more shaped by political ideologies than by scientific facts.

Neither of these simplistic views covers the whole picture; addiction is a complex phenomenon which has biological, psychological and social components.
