Funky Chickens

Chickens fed cannabis

In Thailand a farmer who grows medical cannabis was wondering what to do with all the left over leaves and tried various preparations in the feed given to thier chickens, the chickens are less likely to suffer from bronchitis, need fewer antibiotics, are generally healthier and tastier to eat.

The benefits of cannabis just keep on comming and yet we're still not allowed it as a medicine.

Like with many drugs, the jury is out regarding effects, benefits, quantities and purity.

I've been drinking weed tea and a slice of lemon lately and tea is legal where do I stand on that one?

Obviously there can be side effects from cannabis products and not everyone gets on with them, if you buy it legally then there'd be more choice of variety depending on why you wanted to take it, anything from a particular medical benefit to the equivalent of a couple of beers to relax. The government could also tax it and get an income stream from it, or allow people to grow up to a certain amount, it would free up a lot of police time too.

I think the law in this country with regards to drugs in general and cannabis in particular is ridiculous and out dated and in desperate need of reform.

But this thread was just a funny about chickens being given weed and the benefits to them and potentially to all of us if they need fewer anti-biotics, anti-biotic resistant germs are an increasing problem and a lot of its due to over use.

I know a lot of people who use cannabis for medicinal purposes and the authorities are not very interested in those who do so in their homes and don't carry an amount of stock suitable for distribution.

There is no doubt that cannabis can be beneficial for certain medical conditions. I wouldn't want to see a cannabis free for all with no regulation but it should be available for medical reasons.
