A butcher operating out of Pike Place Market in Seattle has been feeding pigs all of those “useless” stems, root bulbs, and “over sized” marijuana leaves produced as by-product at the local medical dispensary. The special feed, William von Schneidau tells NPR, leads to the production of “redder and more savory” meat. Of course it does! The BB Ranch owner has also been busy slipping mickeys to his livestock in the form of the local vodka distillery’s spent grains. When all is said and done in the abattoir, “Pot Pig” holds blowout dinners for $120 a head with stoner pig on the menu. There are also “gourmet cupcakes” for dessert.
As a Cuban, this gives a whole new meaning to Noche Buena.
”..when you are convinced that all the exits are blocked, either you take to believing in miracles or you stand still like the hummingbird. The miracle is that the honey is always there, right under your nose, only you were too busy searching elsewhere to realize it. The worst is not death but being blind, blind to the fact that everything about life is in the nature of the miraculous.”
