Do dogs get high from pot/mj/weed?

Someone (or some people) are smoking so much weed that is it permeating my whole apartment. Which is fine. I guess. I'm about to leave anyway. But I was wondering if my dog will get high. Should I take her with me or can I leave her in the apartment?

Does your dog seem annoyed by the smell? If yes, take her out.

A friend's Dalmation once ate a whole batch of Hash Brownies. They couldn't work out what was wrong with him and took him to the vet, who was equally stumped. They took him home and found the shredded wrapper in his bed.

If you leave her, she may want these

Re: Do dogs get high from pot/mj/weed?

She's not annoyed. She's just a little bitty thing. 2.5kg. I think I'll take her with me.

The house wart guy is going door to door asking if anything is burning. Maybe the building is on fire. Or there is a mj field being burnt not to far from the city. I should go out & check if the smell is outside too. But doesn't that only happen in Mexico?

ETA: Crisis over. Seems they smoked it all at once & have run out or are all passed out. It's only noon!! Should I be concerned about the new neighbors???

hahahah they seem allllright!

Definitely speak with them if it happens again, preferable as friendly as possible when they're under the influence. If you ask them nicely to take it outside next time (because of children-or such lie) no pothead could really say no--if they do, then there's some higher issues

Ali G cracks me up. Borat on the other hand I can't stand. I'd love to know what the guy thinks about Ali G. Do people realize it's a joke or do they think "this guy is an idiot"?

So, you're saying I need to train my Chihuahua as a drug dog!? Useless? I think not! :P

Re: Do dogs get high from pot/mj/weed?

Well, apparently, dogs do have THC receptors (like humans and I guess all other animals do), so this means that dogs are biologically capable of getting "high." I think it's quite difficult (or perhaps impossible) to get high from second-hand smoke, though -- especially if it's coming from a different apartment.

Tell your neighbors to use the ol' "dryer-sheet-in-an-empty-toilet-paper-roll" trick. They exhale their "hit" through an empty toilet paper roll that's been stuffed with dryer/fabric softener sheets.

This came in handy during my high school years.

I didn't get high, but she's only a little thing.
But I do have that after taste in the back of my throat. blech.

I think for now I'm going to let my neighbors be. If it continues I might take the "if you can't beat 'em join 'em" stance.

Lol... Well, if we suddenly start to see unusually silly posts coming from you -- or posts that absolutely don't make sense -- then we'll know why.

Re: Do dogs get high from pot/mj/weed?

I'm surprised none of the pharma folks have piped up but...since I used to work in medical research many moons ago, one of the reason dogs are so frequently used in drug studies is due to their having similar physiological reactions to many drugs. So...(and sorry for the downer there) the short answer is, yes, your dog can get stoned and even drunk if you happen to leave some alcoholic beverage somewhere and he happens to drink it.

WRT the hash brownies - wow, the dog had a double whammy, one from the hash and one from the poisonous chocolate. Hope he turned out alright.

Re: Do dogs get high from pot/mj/weed?

Seriously though, your dog won't be harmed by neighbourly fumes. You'd pretty much have to blow it directly in it's face repeatedly.

Re: Do dogs get high from pot/mj/weed?

just remember, you can't od from a marijuana overdose. dog will get high, but will be fine.

What sucks is that your household is being subjected to this second hand high whether you like it or not. If you're in a position that requires drug testing it can be particularly worrisome. I know I'd be downright pissed.

A stoned Chihuahua is probably not a bad thing!
There's a Jack Russel in the building I wish would get stoned more often.

LOL! I love dogs, but Jack Russels are intolerable when sober, I'd hate to see one stoned unless it put them into a deep nap.

Is smoking weed legal in Switzerland? As someone who is slightly neurotic about flushing the loo after 10pm due to the house rules, I'd be seriously amused to know I could light up a bong without a care.
