Bacon already takes our taste buds to a heavenly place, so we can only imagine where bacon from a pig that was raised on marijuana would take our buds? This is the case with pigs bred on a farm in Seattle. Apparently pigs who were fed marijuana leaves and roots on the farm, grew bigger and more happier.
“They were eating more, as you can imagine,” Susannah Gross, the farm owner with the porky pigs whose feed was supplemented with potent pot plant scraps, told Reuters. Also, they just wanted to wallow in the mud all day.
In November, the state of Washington made recreational marijuana use legal — medical marijuana was already legal there. A medical marijuana grower named Matt McAlman provided Gross with the detritus of his business. He said he hopes the idea expands to other forms of animal husbandry, including chickens and cows.
