Not sure how these vets knew that this dog was acting strangely due to eating marijuana. The article mentions testing, but no mention of the test results. I know Australia is a place where the weird is the norm, but marijuana growing wild by the side of the road? At least Scooby seems to have made a complete recovery, so is this a first-person description of a dog after eating marijuana? My old friend and co-author Frank Daly lives in Perth. Maybe I’ll give him a call and get to the bottom of this.
