Restaurant to sedate lobsters with marijuana before cooking them

Lobster pot Restaurant gets shellfish high on marijuana prior to cooking

Gill claimed that Roscoe's aggression reduced to such a degree after the treatment that he no longer attacked other lobsters when reintroduced to the communal tank, even with his claws unbound.

Dawn Boothe, a professor of pharmacology at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine, said though there was little doubt that cannabis, under the correct circumstances and the correct species, can provide pain relief for animals, it does not mean lobsters exposed to marijuana smoke will be relieved of pain or will get high.

Restaurant owner Charlotte Gill placed a test lobster she named Roscoe into a covered box with water at the bottom. In legal cannabis states across the country, CBD-rich products to calm and relax household pets have quickly gained market share, but veterinarians consistently warn against feeding pets edibles or blowing smoke in their face.

"We put the pot in lobster pot", Gill told TODAY Food, who observed a dramatic shift in the animals' behavior after starting to smoke out her lobsters last month.

"It is highly unlikely that getting a lobster high would make a lick of difference when it comes to the full-blown agony of being boiled or steamed alive".

"THC breaks down completely by 392 degrees, therefore we will use both steam as well as a heat process that will expose the meat to a 420-degree extended temperature, in order to ensure there is no possibility of carryover effect", Gill said in the interview. So where some see a humane death for the lobster, others see a waste of perfectly good weed.

Another of the key sections of the development is in its vocation to show us new experiences of virtual reality . Applications in this way are obvious, especially in the field of virtual reality .

Although Gill is getting global attention for her attempts to kill lobsters humanely, some of her Facebook followers see a disconnect, wondering why she's running a lobster restaurant if she's so anxious about how lobsters feel when they're boiled alive. "It's what we call the precautionary principle, and [it] gives them some protection in case they do feel pain".

The lobster, when cooked, is usually boiled alive, and whether the crustacean feels pain during the process is not fully known.

"There's no absolute proof, but you keep running experiments and nearly everything I looked at came out consistent with the idea of pain in these animals", animal behaviour professor Robert Elwood told The New York Times earlier this year.

Back to Charlotte's Legendary Stoned Lobsters.

Charlotte's Legendary Lobster Pound in Southwest Harbor is owned by a registered medical marijuana caregiver. "If we do this. we can make it kinder". "I wonder if they smoke sea weed??" The vegan advocacy group, which once tried to erect a gravestone for lobsters killed in a truck crash, is opposed to boiling lobsters alive under any circumstances.
