Not to worry though, as we are being told that not just anyone can buy the goods:
“We’re looking forward to using the ZAZZ machine to easily track all this inventory … we’re gonna eliminate the middle man. It’ll go straight from the budtender right into our machine. There’s no room for theft by patients, employees … there’s no way to lose track of the inventory,” says Herbal Elements owner Greg Honan.
Buying a pot brownie won’t be as easy as sticking in a few quarters like you would do for a Snickers candy bar.
You’ll need to have a valid medical marijuana card and your ID will have to be verified before you can get anything out of the vending machine.
Great! We've done such a good job keeping alcohol out of the hands of minors, I'm sure these "methods" will be just as successful.
A fire has been reported prior to 11 a.m. this morning at 1310 Surf Avenue in Coney Island, Brooklyn, the home of Nathan's Famous, the frankfurter merchant. The building had been undergoing extensive repairs and renovation following Hurricane Sandy, and had not been yet opened for business. The fire was soon declared under control, and no damage estimates are yet available.
In the book, Photenhauer provides semen storage and flavor enhancement tips, as well as plenty of deliciously titled recipes like the Macho Mojito, the Slightly Saltier Caviar and the Galliano Cum Shot. (We couldn't make this stuff up.)
Photenhauer argues that the complexities of semen could be compared to those in wine or cheese, and that the ingredient adds a special "personal touch."
So is the closing bartender responsible for "restocking" before he goes home? This reminded me of the classic scene from Hollywood Knights:
A study of lab mice, published on Wednesday, begs to differ. It concludes that one of the most common and effective forms of bariatric surgery, called Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, melts away pounds not - or not only - by re-routing the digestive tract, as long thought, but by changing the bacteria in the gut.
Or, in non-scientific terms, the surgery somehow replaces fattening microbes with slimming ones.
If that occurs in people, too, then the same bacteria-changing legerdemain achieved by gastric bypass might be accomplished without putting obese patients under the knife in an expensive and risky operation.
"These elegant experiments show that you can mimic the action of surgery with something less invasive," said Dr. Francesco Rubino of Catholic University in Rome and a pioneer in gastric-bypass surgery. "For instance, you might transfer bacteria or even manipulate the diet" to encourage slimming bacteria and squelch fattening kinds, said Rubino, who was not involved in the study.
