PSYC 304  March 31 - Tolerance: The need to take increasingly larger doses of a drug in order to produce the same effect  initially produced by a much smaller dose o Metabolic tolerance: because the drug is degraded faster thus, the dose is not there anymore  (but this is mostly not the case) o Functional tolerance: your receptors are not as sensitive as they used to be thus, you need a  higher dosage to create the same effect. o Cross-tolerance: Tolerance of one drug results in a lessened response to another drug - The Story of Jean Morrison o He was taking lots of drugs, went to Paris, and died of overdose. So he went to Paris from  California   prof is saying the change of environment killed him. The new environment raised  his DA levels in his brain and him taking the same dosage of drugs killed him…it was an OD on  DA stimulation….weird.
