Smart Dope!

I see that those decidedly decisive and divisive Dutch denizens of dope disection have finally managed to extract gene pairs from a marijuana cell and modify them to produce THCs that target specific areas of the brain, giving smokers the opportunity to choose the type of 'high'* that they experience, if this week's New Scientist Gardeners' Weekly is to be believed.
Not being a drug user, apart from the odd 'corned beef injection' (and whenever some twat spikes my drink), myself, this information is of little use. But it's interesting to note that one of their first considerations for its possible use, would be to enhance the way that people work!

I'd like to see how that pans out!

*As marijuana is a sedative, 'high' would be a bit of a misnomer, but 'low' has such a gloomy ring to it.
