B) FALSE



Click here to know the Answer

TRUE

Over time with regular use, a user needs more and more of the drug to get the desired effect. Increased tolerance means an increased risk for overdose for two reasons. First, every drug has a main effect (the effect the user wants) and side effects (effects that the user does not want). Tolerance does not develop evenly to all effects of a drug.
