MDPV, rats showed self-administration patterns and escalation of drug intake nearly identical to methamphetamine. Bath salts users have reported that the drugs trigger intense cravings (or a compulsive urge to use the drug again) and that they are highly addictive. Frequent consumption may induce tolerance, dependence, and.

Abstract Animal models of drug self-administration have made major contributions to understanding the behavioral and pharmacologic determinants of substance abuse.

We have also found that drug self-administration produces region-specific alterations in brain eCB levels. For example, ethanol self-administration increases 2-AG levels in the nucleus accumbens and both 2-AG and AEA levels in the ventral tegmental area, while ethanol consumption does not alter levels of either eCB in the prefrontal cortex.
