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.

Though when we say "you" we mean "scientists with the appropriate time and resources to devote to a very fragile and complicated process". Scientists from U.C. Berkeley, Concordia University in Montreal and University of Calgary have developed a fifteen step process using three different genetically modified yeasts to turn glucose into morphine. Eventually, it could be used to produce opiod drugs easier but at the moment it takes 53 gallons of the specialized yeast to create 30 mg of morphine.

Josh Thomas loves beer, and that intense love of the holy beverage took him to a rather unexpected place North Korea:

"Their beer is very similar to the American beer brand Anchor Steam. Darker, fuller-bodied, hoppier, and delicious, it was hands down better than South Korean beer!"

Dock Street Brewery, located in Philidelphia, has just started aging a beer with music. The hope, as head brewer Vince Desrosiers told Philadelphia Magazine, is that vibrations from the sounds of Wu-Tang Clan music will agitate the yeast and "create some different flavors during fermentation.” 

The beer itself, called Ain't Nuthin’ to Funk With, should be ready to try later this year.

The folks at highly regarded Russian River Brewing stress one thing that may surprise you: freshness. It's practically a mantra for this famed Santa Rosa brewery.

They want you to enjoy their Pliny the Elder, a world-class double India Pale Ale, as soon as possible. It's not something to stock up on for the big barbecue in six months. It's definitely not something to collect and break out in a few years for a special occasion.

"Beer is a perishable product. The way we make our IPAs, they're not meant to age," said Russian River co-owner Natalie Cilurzo. "The fresher they are, the better they are.

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."

Palcohol allows you to take your favorite drink and sprinkle it on whatever you like, for example rum powdered cookies. But, it's not all delicious ideas and treats as people, especially parents worried about kids getting ahold of the substance, are raising concern over the powdered adult beverage. Colorado has already banned sale of Palcohol. For the rest of the US, it should be available by summer time.
