DEA: Utah Legalizing Medical Cannabis Will Lead to Stoned Rabbits

If Utahrabbit lawmakers approve a bill to legalize medical cannabis, wildlife – especially rabbits – will “cultivate a taste” for the plant, lose their fear of humans and be stoned all the time. This is according to an agent of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), who made the statements while testifying in opposition to Utah’s Senate Bill 259, which would legalize medical cannabis and was recently approved by the state’s Senate Judiciary Committee.

“I deal in facts. I deal in science,” said special agent Matt Fairbanks, a member of Utah’s “marijuana eradication” team in Utah.

Fairbanks says that at some cannabis grow sites he saw “rabbits that had cultivated a taste for the marijuana.” He continued: “One of them refused to leave us, and we took all the marijuana around him, but his natural instincts to run were somehow gone.”

So, there you have it; we shouldn’t allow those suffering from debilitating illnesses to use a safe and effective medicine because some lucky rabbits might benefit from consuming the plant themselves.

    Smh. My cousins and I used to feed pot plants to their pet rabbits (it was growing near their cage, and no, we didn’t know what it was at the time) and they never behaved even remotely strange/unusual.

    Finally,after nearly 5 decades of buying science and telling lies the DEA may have found a danger from marijuana,,too rabbits,,if they eat the growing plants they will get high,,a pity one of their experts like Mark Klieman or Kevin Sabet couldn’t tell them that growing marijuana won’t get you high unless you heat the THC,,and they have a $5 billion dollar budget,,imagine what they will be able to dream up if we gave them $10 billion.

    1. Actually THC-A breaks down through metabolism as well. It just takes about two hours. But the problem for the rabbits is that cannabinoid rich resins are not produced by the plant until it finishes with the vegetative growth stage and enters the flowering stage. As the female flowers mature the grower constantly checks the ripening plants, the rabbits wouldn’t have a chance to get near them at the final stage before harvest. The guard cat would get them if they tried. They might be able to eat cannabis seedlings as they grow in the fields but odds are they aren’t getting very high.

    Some people will say anything and think that because they have a little authority, the powers at be and the general public will believe their drivel…
