Popular Superfood Is Being Used To Create An Intense Party High

Cacao-powder1

(PCM) There is a new party drug that has been popping up dance clubs and raves all over the world and surprisingly it is a substance that many of us have certainly consumed at one time or another in life. The drug is said to cause a brain-boosting rush, provide the user with tons of energy and keep the party going all night long, and oh, did we mention is is also listed as a common superfood by health experts?

We are referencing cacao, a substance that grows in the tropics, and is quickly on it’s way to becoming a pretty darn “sweet” party drug.  Cacao can be ingested, drunk or even snorted and party-goers are experimenting in just about every way imaginable. It is beginning to take the place of alcohol and other illegal substances at many events, as bar tenders are mixing it into drinks and keeping their bars well stocked with cacao drinks and supplement pills.

They are using the very same raw cacao powder that can be purchased at your local Vitamin Shoppe or other health food store location and it is all completely legal. The raw cacao powder is said to create a surge of endorphin’s in the body which leads to the feeling of euphoria and it also features a high level of magnesium which is responsible for relaxing muscles and de-stressing the body. The cacao is in no way going to create a scenario where someone goes out of their mind, it just amplifies the overall experience of being in a club. User claim the effects of the cacao are subtle and provide a nice, calming effect over time.

Didn’t they always say that chocolate makes everything better?  Looks like they were telling the truth!

Magnolia Pictures Set To Release ‘Little Men’

(PCM) Magnolia Pictures will release “Little Men” in select cities on August 5 with a nationwide roll out to follow!

Little-Men1

Synopsis:

When 13-year-old Jake’s (Theo Taplitz) grandfather dies, his family moves from Manhattan back into his father’s old Brooklyn home. There, Jake befriends the charismatic Tony (Michael Barbieri), whose single mother Leonor (Paulina Garcia, Gloria), a dressmaker from Chile, runs the shop downstairs. Soon, Jake’s parents Brian (Greg Kinnear) and Kathy (Jennifer Ehle) — one, a struggling actor, the other, a psychotherapist — ask Leonor to sign a new, steeper lease on her store. For Leonor, the proposed new rent is untenable, and a feud ignites between the adults.

At first, Jake and Tony don’t seem to notice; the two boys, so different on the surface, begin to develop a formative kinship as they discover the pleasures of being young in Brooklyn. Jake aspires to be an artist, while Tony wants to be an actor, and they have dreams of going to the same prestigious arts high school together. But the children can’t avoid the problems of their parents forever, and soon enough, the adult conflict intrudes upon the borders of their friendship.

Directed by Ira Sachs (Love is Strange, Keep the Lights On, Forty Shades of Blue) with his trademark humanism and insight, Little Men highlights the New York City landscape with a story of life-defining friendships in the midst of familial turmoil.
TRT: 85 min.
Country: USA
Language: English
Director: Ira Sachs
Writers: Ira Sachs and Mauricio Zacharias
