DEA Issues Stoned Rabbit Warning
« on: February 05, 2016, 01:43:23 am »
“DEA warns of stoned rabbits if Utah passes medical marijuana”

Here’s the link:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2015/03/02/dea-warns-of-stoned-rabbits-if-utah-passes-medical-marijuana/

My first reaction to this was: And this is a problem because?

But, on second thought, I realized there may still be a few natural predators running around in Utah that all of those man-child gun fetishists out there haven’t managed to kill yet. So, stoned rabbits could be in danger from any surviving straight coyotes, foxes, wolves, etc.

I don't think the rabbit population would be impacted much, if at all, by that.

Even assuming the unlikely case of wild rabbits eating marijuana flowers.

Won't somebody think about the bunnies?
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

I see the foul hand of RWHN in this.   :lulz:

I can’t help but wonder, how hard would it be to talk that guy into writing an Official Endorsement™ for the showing of Reefer Madness to impressionable young people in high schools and church groups?

Not hard. Not hard AT ALL.

That' would be brilliant.  I wonder if he'd know it'd been MST3K'd.

His apparent complete ignorance of how marijuana grows, which parts contain THC, and whether animals eat it/what happens when they do was Amazing. A fucking mazing. The fact that he apparently has NEVER HEARD of the freeze reflex in small prey animals is similarly astounding.

To be honest, I'd be much more surprised by a non-ignorant DEA agent.

Won't somebody think about the bunnies?

I feel your pain. I assure you, the cute, little bunny rabbits hippity hoppitting around my backyard, at least, are being well cared for.

The only predators in my neighborhood are some very lazy, roaming housecats, an occasional crow, and some hawks that have easier pickins down by the river. My wife plants catnip behind our garage, so the neighborhood cats are usual too stoned to even notice the bunny rabbits. (I find one of the neighbors’ cats sprawled out and cross-eyed in our catnip patch about once a week during the summer. My wife is, apparently, growing some primo stuff.)

Those cute, little bunny rabbits, however, went all ‘scorched earth’ on our carrots last spring. (I don’t think they were into The Sustainable Food Supply Chain Management™ thingy quite yet.) So, I had to build a chicken wire fence around and over the carrot patch. Our furry, little friends are now welcome to eat anything that grows through the chicken wire, but they have to be patient, and wait for us to share the rest of the carrots with them when we’re ready to harvest them. (‘Them’ meaning the carrots, not the cute, little bunny rabbits.)

Yeah, that whole industry seems to be riddled with bad information and outright ignorance.

Does anybody else think that stoned rabbits would make a great premise for a webcomic?

Are you thinking something along these lines, or do you have something else in mind?
