Humans have used intoxicants like alcohol and marijuana for thousands of years, and we modern humans are no different. The Northwest is home to thriving beer, wine, and spirits industries, and now that both Washington and Oregon permit the recreational sale and use of marijuana, there are more legal opportunities to get high. At this Science on Tap, have a beer and stimulate both sides of your brain as neuroscientist Bill Griesar, PhD, http://directory.vancouver.wsu.edu/people/bill-griesar, and artist Jeff Leake http://www.jeffleake.webs.com, from NW Noggin http://nwnoggin.org discuss both the science and art of alcohol and marijuana. Find out how these drugs affect the chemistry our brains and how they change our behavior. Also find out how some well-known artists have approached (and sometimes used) these drugs in the creation of works of art. ***EVENT DETAILS*** DATE: Wednesday, March 11 , 2015 TIME: Doors at 6 p.m. event at 7 p.m. LOCATION: Kiggins Theatre, 1011 Main Street, Vancouver, Wash.
