    Changes to Justice System

    Anyone else heard or read about Attny. Gen. Eric Holder's proposal to change the way "druggies" are dealt with. From what I gathered, he is proposing to treat drug criminal's addiction, rather than imprisoning them, at least the "less dangerous" ones. If that's the government's plan, then this could be REAL, REAL big for Alkermes. I'm not sure if this is a result of Alkermes trials of VIVITROL with various prison systems, or if the government actually thought of something indpendently. (that would be a first!!) I understand that the government is looking at this as a more cost effective way to handle convicted drug criminals. Exactly what ALKS has been using as one of it's justifications, to treat rather than incarcerate.
