"Celebrating both paydays by getting together and drinking was a long established soviet custom."

"She mentioned radiation and suggested a cure--a bottle of vodka. They drank vodka while making jokes about the whole thing" - Serhii Plokhy, Chernobyl: The History of a Nuclear Catastrophe (2018)

I can't help thinking if a reactor blew its top in Minnesota, it would come down that the solution was Marijuana.
