Many people forget abut animals, but they are just as involved with war on Cannabis as anyone else. This cartoon was inspired by an article that caught my attention (of course- dogs):
Having to re-train drug sniffing dogs. Oh well. Train them. I’m not worried about the dogs, they will be easier to re-train than the humans. They are intelligent, beautiful beasts, clearly.
Then there are the family pets. Several times in the news you hear of homes that are raided and the pets end up being shot. I do not understand this. Are there not special bullets - TRANQUILIZERS?
It is a difficult argument, I understand in difficult situations police have to take caution, but I believe, when entering a home on suspicion, without a warrant- well then they have done their homework, supposably.. they must have been watching the home.
So BE prepared to deal with the animal. Is it complicated?
O.k. I have read about he occasional guard gator - STILL do NOT shoot the beast.
The human put them there.
The lack of disregard for an animals safety is just another level of abuse.
Many homes treat and love their animals as their children.
I have dogs, I get it that they are dogs, BUT when something happens to one of them it effects our entire family, especially a loss. It can feel heart breaking.
Cannabis is a medicine for children and yes, it is a medicine for animals as well! OF COURSE! DUH! I was reading something just today, cleaning out the laundry room and found a powder - for fleas for cats - huge letter - KEEP away from CHILDREN.
Why the heck would anyone use something that says that on a pet?
Common sense tells me, if its not o.k. for my kid - Chances are it’s not o.k. for my much smaller pet. I don’t want to take any chances.
Cannabis does not kill. I know many of our dogs that have enjoyed it a time or two. Tequila now - is so old I can hardly get her out of her basket, when I remember I blow a little Vapor her way and she’s up and about ready for a good belly rub and growl!
So yes, CONSIDER animals as well, when you VOTE on the war on drugs- end the this madness for our family and friends 2 legs and 4! Just one more reason... ;-)
