    I'm off for a week to attend a judicial conference on setting up special drug courts that focus on treatment instead of incarceration.

    My question is for the lot of you is: if drug addiction is a meme, are there any insights that a memetic perspective can suggest on how to limit it's spread? A related question: how is this complicated by the involuntary nature of addiction itself?
