Default THC from a petri dish

Scientists have created yeasts that can make important constituents of marijuana, including the main psychoactive compound, tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC.

This sounds promising for home cultivation.

As we improve our gene splicing abilities we're going to be producing no end of pharmaceuticals and recreational drugs with yeasts.

"Making moonshine" will develop entire new meanings.

I wonder if the yeasts they are using for THC production will still produce ethanol and carbon dioxide under the right environmental conditions. Think of the possibilities for beer and wine production!

I think the DEA (through the NSA) will be logging every IP who reads that article.

Heck they be monitoring this one.
