At Last, One For the Dogs

The “Stoner Dog” meme may be funny, but weed and canines is no laughing matter…

In the past 12 years since Colorado has legalized medical marijuana, “cases of marijuana poisoning in dogs have quadrupled” according to a five-year study by Dr. Stacy Meola of the Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital. Gawker reports that several dogs have died from eating baked goods with marijuana butter and others have experienced side effects like nausea, lethargy, and over-sensitivity to light and sound.

So, even if you think pot helps you, realize it will be a tragic waste on your pets (and we’re assuming this includes cats)!
