"High motivation"

Monkey can cough
Monkeys can choke
Scientists are teaching monkeys to smoke!


Nicotine use is highly addictive in primates, say researchers who conducted
an unusual study of squirrel monkeys....

It found that squirrel monkeys who could give themselves nicotine by pressing a lever initially used it very little - but over time developed a "high motivation" for
using it.
