Abstract

In an attempt to discuss our ability to predict drug dependence and abuse liability, if and when a substance becomes available for clinical use, I would like to begin by commenting on some events, observations or judgments which seem to me to have had a role in the evolution of the present situation. I will not go very far back, only a little beyond the span of my own experience.
