Medical marijuana, for pets...?

While I am not a marijuana smoker myself, I do recognize that this plant has wonderful health benefits, not just smoking it, but drinking it, or even eating the actual leaves. And of this, I am a big supporter.

I know that natives always used this plant for health issues (or at least I know in Mexico they do) and this morning I was actually wondering about its use on pets, as I had never heard of anything, and if its good for us why not for them? and I came across this interesting article.

Everyone has its own views, and I personally think politics and media have made this herb into a "illegal drug" to avoid cutting down the profits of pharmaceuticals, but at the same time for the bigger gain of others $$, because when you make something "illegal" more people will want it and pay too much for it. :shrug:

The only thing I would be concerned about is having a 100 lbs dog having the munchies after having marijuana , the dog could eat you out of house. LOL!
