I live in Washington State, where it’s now legal to smoke weed. The new legislature passed a bit late for me: I stopped smoking pot way back in the good old days when it was still illegal. If someone I love could benefit from marijuana, I would procure some, legal or not. Would I extend that offer to my dogs?
Don’t misunderstand me, I’m not the kind of person who finds it funny when a pet guardian holds an animals face still while they blow a cloud of pot smoke around them. To the contrary, I’ve always thought this cruel and reason to take that persons bong and beat them upside the head with it. But if marijuana can help a pet who’s suffering, and can be administered humanely, I feel the benefits could very well outweigh any negatives.
