It's not a real party until at least two wild animals are sharing in the experience. Opposable thumbs are encouraged but not required.

In their study, researchers looked at elderly men with a genetic variation that produces an enzyme responsible for the metabolism of alcohol that is up to 80 times less competent at doing the task.
It was associated with reduced alcohol use, "but it had no association with depression whatsoever," Prof Almeida said.
"The conclusion is that alcohol use neither causes nor prevents depression in older men.
"Our results also debunk the view that mild to moderate alcohol consumption may reduce the risk of depression."

A sweeping new California law regarding when restaurant workers must wear gloves extends past the kitchen. The LA Times points out that the new rules also apply to bartenders, who now must wear gloves or use utensils when handling any component "that goes directly into your glass." In practical terms, this means that bartenders in California are required to wear gloves or use utensils like tongs or tweezers when touching ice cubes and drink garnishes like herbs, lemon twists, or olives.

No one is surprised that weed in Colorado is high in THC, but low in CBD (cannabidiol). It is, after all, a state where recreational use is legal. CBD is one of the compounds known to have medicinal properties.

When Green Leaf finally opened, Mike's efforts were rewarded with 2 grams of legally purchased Sour Kush, and as it turned out, losing his job — after some narc client who saw him on the news went and snitched to his boss. In a real Gift of the Magi situation, now Mike has the legal ability to buy weed, but no job to pay for it. Still, he's not going to let that get him down:

"Yeah, it was kind of a buzzkill," he says. "But I wasn't going to let it ruin an awesome day."

Update:
HE GOT HIS JOB BACK!!!


"TrueBlue got ahold of me and offered me my job back," Mike told Newsweek. "I'll accept it and we'll see where it goes from there," he said. "The reason they said they gave me my job back was because their policy says you cannot be under the influence at work, which I was not, and since I officially had the day off, what I did on my time was my time. And they gave me my job back, and even gave me a day's worth of pay that I missed."


However, now Mike's thinking about trying to move over into the "marijuana industry."

Now, I'm thinking maybe I can even spin this and get a job in the marijuana industry. It's a new industry. They need qualified people.
