Heavy on the vine

. May 24, 2012.

Alcohol and rock music have a long shared history. Fans may be more likely to think of beer, or Jack Daniels, when they think of their favorite musicians, but Maynard James Keenan, best known as the singer of hard-rock acts Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer has been working for nearly a decade to make a new name as the owner of Caduceus Cellars, a winery in the Verde Valley of Arizona. Filmmakers Christoper Pomerenke and Ryan Page followed Keenan and his partner Eric Glomski as they struggled to establish their vineyard and winery in the arid environment of Arizona. The result is Blood Into Wine, a 2010 film being shown as part of the Michigan Theater’s 2011 Summer Documentary Film Series. It’s bound to appeal both to Keenan’s devoted fanbase and wine lovers who may never have heard “Stinkfist” or “Judith.” $9. Monday, July 25. 7pm.  603 E. Liberty St. 734-668-8463. www.michtheater.org

A Physician’s Perspective on Legalized Cannabis

On Tuesday, November 6th, Michigan became the 10th state to legalize cannabis for recreational use. Ten years ago, we had become the 13th state to legalize Cannabis for medical use. I voted for the medical cannabis law years ago because, in my view, cannabis is not a dangerous product, and too many people were being imprisoned for its use. At that time, however, I did not subscribe to the argument that there were legitimate medical uses for cannabis. How things have changed.

Tiny Expo at Ann Arbor District Library—A Curated Holiday Gift Fair with Flair
