    You'd have to be more specific as to what you are calling "memory." The thing about science in the news is that a metaphor is used to help explain an idea and then people tend to take it a tad too literally.

    I've been backing DVDs up to bamboo shoots for years, man. Where you been?

    I prefer to use something less common than grass. I'm using cactuses.

    I guess marijuana really does steal a person's short term memory.

    Or maybe it was long term memory. I can't remember.

    Well, if they mean things like DNA and stuff, then yes, that's storing memory. However, "computer data" like bianary data doesn't make sense to me... :confused:

    I'm sure using magnets to store binary data didn't make sense to people 50 years ago ;)
