Farmer Feeds Pigs Marijuana

Farmer Feeds Pigs Marijuana
Posted June 27th, 2013 @ 1:18pm by KFBK News

A pig farmer in Washington state is feeding his animals marijuana leaves.

Jeremy Gross says it's part flavor experiment, part green recycling and part promotion, bolstered by the legalization of marijuana in the state. The pigs get the pot excess, and Gross' business partner, butcher William von Schneidau, says the pot-fed pigs make a great-tasting pork.

Gross says, "It's almost like a savory alfalfa fed cow or alfalfa fed pig."

The meat does not get people high.
