Want to get your dog stoned?
Dogs live their lives napping, constantly wanting to eat and generally looking confused at the most basic tasks, so it is rather surprising that someone has created some treats for dogs that will get them stoned.
'Pot for pets' isn't a novelty product though - the people behind think that marijuana can be used as a mild pain relief for pooches. They're thinking of old dogs with knackered hips, but you just know that young pups will be gagging to get at it, so they can play video games and eat Monster Munch all day while you're at work.
One dog owner apparently said that her hound was all set to be put to sleep by the vet, but bought the special strain of weed and her dog got better: "Never in my wildest dreams would I have anticipated this. It brought my dog back."
The side effect is that her dog now listens to festival reggae and wants to go to India to find itself.
There's a few companies behind this idea and Julianna Carella, CEO of Treatibles who are one of them, is reticent to discuss the actual medical benefits of giving animals drugs.
She said: "Honestly, we’re hands off with that because we’re not doctors and it’s not our place to prescribe it in that way."
If she's not a doctor, then surely she's a dealer? Either way, there's a good chance that some baby boomer will be curious enough to buy this and find that their 15 year old human child has decided to eat the dog-weed to see what happens. We can only hope the outcome is funny and uploaded to YouTube.
