    okay so personly i do let my dogs get high. but i let them choose... me and my boyfriend just sit there and smoke and we blow it but i have a real problem when people hold their dogs head and blow smoke in their face. we chose to smoke, people didnt hold my head and blow smoke in my face so why should we do that to our bestfriends? doesnt make sense to me. i was just looking how others felt about this.... thanks

    I'm pretty grossed out by people who do that as well, and I know ALOT of people who do it. I've had people come to my place and try to get my cats high. I don't even allow drug use at my place anymore because of it.

    I don't think it's right to get animals high, and I don't think an animal is capable of deciding to get high.

    But a few years ago, I made a grilled cheese sandwich with pot in it and left it on the counter for a couple of minutes...when I came back to eat it, it wasn't there cause my dog had eaten it. I was kind of pissed off at first cause that was all the weed I had left, but it was funny seeing my dog really high like that. Mellow, slow, clumsy, tired, hungry and more insane than usual.

    If your dog knows what it is and chooses to inhale the smoke, then fine. However I would guess your dog is around you for company and doesn't know what the smoke is.

    I personally don't do drugs, but if I did, I wouldn't let my dog "get high".

    And people who hold a dogs head and blow in them, I can't even say what I'd do to them.
     
  5. If the animal is receptive, then do it.

    I guess if they run away, don't force them.

    I don't know. I can't imagine it'd really be wrong if you're just sitting in the room and your animal doesn't leave or anything. But when you're blowing smoke directly at them, or holding them or whatever, yes, that crosses the line.

    I can't imagine 'getting high' really has any adverse effects on the animals, does it?

    i believe it`s a really good reason that marijuana is still illegal. pets are mistreated enough without this.

    Humans are not the only animals that like to get high. There are quite a few animals (in the wild) that do actively seek out and ingest psychoactive plants, fruits, bugs, etc. Check out the book -
    Animals and Psychedelics - The Natural World and the Instinct to Alter Consciousness by Giorgio Samorini.

    read the fine print. actively seeking out. & these are animals in the wild. pets aren`t "in the wild". there`s a big difference. animals also have council meetings. & make tools.

    Wasn't trying to say that people should force them to get high, only that some are capable of chosing for themselves.

    how exactly do they choose? how does an animal indicate they wish to use drugs? wild animals, when they`ve chosen to do so, yes do many things. but doing things in front of humans & getting fed by humans is a different ball game. humans tend sometimes to occasionally "ruin" animals. sometimes when a baby animal is touched by a human, the mother will abandon it. if an animal has already gotten high, then a human would just be "enabling". & the "can`t be addicted" thing doesn`t apply to animals. by the way, i know several people who are addicted to marijuana, no if`s, ands,or buts. one lost her farm because of it. just smoking it, not growing/getting caught. actually, she probably had no business making her own decisions in the first place. i tried to tell her this for years before she lost it. so, even humans don`t exactly "choose" sometimes.

    That's a complex question, and would be dependent on a lot of factors to which the humans and animals that are involved would have to decide for themselves, not to be decided for them.

    i think it's funny to get a dog high. it's not like you're hurting them. shit, they're just animals.

    When I lived with my boyfriend, his friends would constantly come over and get our dog Hoss and our roomies cat high. Hoss always sat on the floor right in front of us while we smoked, so it didn't seem too awful.. I actually never thought of it as something bad until I read this.

    For some reason my cat will come out of hiding and rub up against me purring. She loves it. Would never force her though.

    you need to tell many more people you do this. i think some people would be veery interested. though honestly i don`t think(if you`re telling the truth), you should have any more pets. this thread is getting ridiculous. there`s nothing whatsoever funny about it. it`s pathetic.

    Yes They r Animals but that's not all they r that was very rude and we don't think of humans in this way so we should not think of animals like that, and ur the reason why people have a prob. with this kind of stuff
