"Alternative Medicine" Update x3

Bob alerted me to this great news:

"A Tacoma-based blood center offers donors a deal: Give a pint of blood, get a pint of beer."

Hey, if that's all it takes to motivate folks to "give a little," I'm all for it. On the other hand, I'd hate to see this taken to its (potentially) logical conclusion:

"A Seattle-based organ transplant center offers donors a deal: give a kidney, get a mocha latte."

And speaking of reality-bending medicinal applications:

"The New Jersey Legislature has approved a bill allowing chronically ill patients access to marijuana for medical reasons."

As we've noted before, these initiatives enjoy the (so far) tacit approval of the Obamastration.

One wonders when beer and pot will be approved expenses for FSA's.
