Drug Warrior Issues Dire Warning That Rabbits Will Start Getting High

Utah is weighing the pros and cons of legalizing medical marijuana for specific patients who suffer from debilitating conditions that can be ameliorated by edible marijuana. DEA agent Matt Fairbanks testifies around the 58:00 mark. Fairbanks' testimony is a call for more research about growing marijuana. Fairbanks wonders aloud about the environmental dangers in growing marijuana (which are the same dangers faced in growing any crops). He says things like "I deal in science" while giving this very special anecdotal tidbit:

Fairbanks said that at some illegal marijuana 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."

[Bold is my emphasis, man]

Fairbanks is a part of the marijuana eradication team in Utah. Eradication teams can be found all over our great nation, doing God's work:

Georgia police raided a retired Atlanta man's garden last Wednesday after a helicopter crew with the Governor's Task Force for Drug Suppression spotted suspicious-looking plants on the man's property. A heavily-armed K9 unit arrived and discovered that the plants were, in fact, okra bushes.


Pro: Heavily armed DEA agents will raid farmers to stop the evils of cannabis (or suspicious okra).

Cons: Rabbits who don't want you to harsh their mellow may roam the countryside and even let you pet them.
