• Colorado Pot Legalization Leads to Huge Increase in Dogs Eating Marijuana

    The canines are getting high on their owners' supply.

    As a dog owner and lover, I have to say that this is just sad, not to mention, it reflects poorly on the “legalize” movement as a whole. Here we have the unintended consequence of several things:

    1. Legalized pot.
    2. Increased pot use.
    3. Stupidity.

    The canines are getting into the stoners’ edibles, and the prognosis is not good. Dogs weigh far less than human beings, so even a small amount of marijuana that would have little effect on a person can cause major damage to a pup. Symptoms of dogs who have gotten hold of, for example, a “special brownie”, can vary from disorientation to seizures and even comas. And that can last for DAYS. Vets say they’ve been seeing a large uptick in these cases in Denver since January 1st.

    Let’s use some common sense, folks. Keep your supply where the four-legged ones can’t reach it. That is, assuming you’re clear-eyed enough to do that. Fido is counting on you.
