Plucked From The News…
A Senator from Nevada has decided to introduce into legislation a bill that would allow veterinarians to give medical marijuana cards for animals experiencing chronic or debilitating pain.
Senator Richard “Tick” Segerblom’s (D) proposal to allow ailing pets this option is part of a larger bill that would also change some medical marijuana laws in the state of Nevada. Other revisions are geared toward the human use of medical marijuana such as training for dispensary owners and motorists not being penalized for having marijuana in their system.
But is marijuana as effective at alleviating pain in animals as it seems to in humans?
Although Senator Segerblom has voiced concern that some animals might have adverse reactions to medical marijuana he has been quoted as saying, “you don’t know until you try.”
What do you think? Should medical marijuana be an option for animals? Would you consider giving it to your beloved pet?
