Nevada Bill Would Allow Pets To Use Medical Pot
Under a bill introduced in the Nevada Legislature on Tuesday, pets in that state may soon be able to use marijuana.
The AP reports that Democratic State Senator Tick Segerblom sponsored the new law to allow animal owners to give their pets marijuana if a veterinarian verifies the animal is sick and the drug could alleviate its sickness.
The Senator said he has concerns about whether animals could have a negative reaction to the pot, but he told AP, “you don’t know until you try.”
The proposal is part of a larger bill that would make changes to the state’s medicinal marijuana law, removing penalties for drivers who have marijuana in their blood and adding regulations for training in pot shops.
The bill is in the first stage of the legislative process and faces many hurdles before pets in Nevada will legally be allowed to toke up with their owners.
