Yeast is being used to "grow" morphine.

Yeast are the coolest organism on the planet.  No but seriously, scientists are engineering a beer that ferments sugar into morphine.  That's insane!  The idea is that with this method drugs could be produced that have fewer side effects and reduce the addictive properties of a medically relevant pain medication.
