Cannabis fed to ducks

November 20, 2010

Cannabis fed to ducks by French farmer for ‘deworming’” is the BBC website headline.

A French farmer has been given a one-month suspended jail sentence and fined 500 euros (£428) for feeding his ducks marijuana to rid them of worms.

Police arrested Michel Rouyer after they discovered 12 cannabis plants and about 5kg (11lb) of the drug during a visit to his home after a theft.

Mr Rouyer said there was “no better worming substance” for ducks and that his flock was in excellent health.

A police spokesman said it was the first time they had heard such a claim.

Mr Rouyer, who lives in the village of Gripperie-Saint-Symphorien on France’s Atlantic coast, did also admit to smoking some of the marijuana.

I don’t know what to add to this one. It just made a change to the normal news at the moment. Perhaps it brought a smile to your lips, too.
