> There is also a very small population that have a genetic "predisposition" to becoming addicted that figures into the equation...

I'd like to discuss this further. What is this predisposition? How do you know if you have it? How do we know that it exists at all? Is if possible for a person who is genetically predisposed to use potentially addictive drugs without becoming addicted? What other factors contribute to addiction, besides genes? Are there predispositions to become addicted to specific drugs (or classes of drugs)?

I have some ideas, but I'd like to hear what other people have to say.

BTW: good links; thanks for posting them! I encourage people to read them.
