A Portsmouth University study shows prawns found in contaminated English waters were under the influence of antidepressants which altered their marine behavior. This idea has some potential. If an animal with lots of fatty tissue in which to store chemicals were to be fed fat-soluble pharmaceuticals, then the meat from that animal would contain the chemicals. We know we are getting hormones from beef. What if we were able to get high from it? Feed food animals THC. They would probably not mind getting killed quite so much; their lives would seem longer; and I don’t think selling THC steaks is illegal.
It seems that to some extent this may already be happening. This from Muley’s World:
“Today comes a story out of Russia. Some farmers there were confronted with a bit of a problem. The nice field they use to graze their cows in during the winter, filled with nourishing sunflowers and maize, was secretly infiltrated by people using it to grow illegal drugs. Marijuana, to be specific.
“See, the drug guys came in and quietly seeded the peaceful pastures with marijuana seeds. By now, 40 tons of marijuana plants have grown up among the maize and sunflowers.
“The Russian authorities seized the field, of course, but they faced a problem. If they simply burned the field up to get rid of the marijuana, all of the maize and sunflowers that the cows normally eat during the winter months would burn up as well, and the cows would starve to death.
“So, the authorities have decided they’d rather have the cows eat a little wacky grass than starve. These
bovines will be filling all four stomachs with fresh, grade A marijuana.”
