Owl in Christmas tree high as a kite

SARASOTA, Fla. - No one knows exactly how it happened, but one way or another "Cheech" the owl happened upon a stash of marijuana.

A Sarasota, Fla. family recently found him in their Christmas tree emitting a strange odor.

The family had their tree for five days before they decided to decorate it. When they did they found Cheech.

When animal control officers came to get the owl, they also noticed the odor.

"Curiously enough, the owl's feathers smelled very, very potently like marijuana," one officer said. "And it was laying there as happy as can be."

The officers examined the owl and determined it was "stoned."

Blood tests performed on the bird confirmed it was high. Officials don't know how the owl ingested the marijuana.

Officers named the owl "Cheech" and plan to return him to the wild soon.

My first thought was a new twist in the 12 days of Christmas.

I dont see what the big deal is they found a stone owl in a pot at Christmas?

Man, you think having an owl around puts a dent in the mouse population, wait until you get an owl with the munchies.

Sounds like a candidate for snopes.com.

Where was the Christmas tree? They found this thing in something they had tied to their car? In their living room????

Bird food contains hemp seed. Check it out on the bird food labels when you are in the pet store. It was exempted from the law in 1937 because it is considered necessary to the good health of many types of birds. They do get visibly high if they get enough of them.

However,s eed-eating birds eat them -- not meat-eating birds. Unless owls have suddenly turned vegetarian, there is something wrong with the story.

This is going to be a major problem, once an animal gets a taste for weed you can't keep them away from it, I had this cat.... umm nevermind...

Can't you just picture this conversation?

"Dude, like, I was smoking out in park man, no listen I was smoking out in the park and this bird, no really it was a bird man, just swoops down and made off with my baggie man..."

"No WAAY man"

"Way, no shit man, I think it was an owl man."

Nope. People can get stoned from eating it raw.
Link Posted: 12/15/2005 5:52:53 PM EDT
Perhaps a family member lit up in the living room creating a dense fog for the owl to enhale?

You heard wrong.

If a cat eats a gram of good dope, it'll be stoned for about a week.

it would just have to eat a much larger amount.

The owl was given a blood test to find out if it was stoned?

They bother arresting the owl once they scientifically determined that it was a lawbreaker?

No, you heard wrong. marijuana has to be heated to somewhere around 300 degrees (I forget the exact amount) in order to release its tetra hydro chloride (THC). That's why it's either smoked or cooked in brownies.

Been telling people animals do drugs for years.

I really wonder how many deer running into headlights are stoned.

I had a friend in HS who hung two large MJ plants from a tree to dry. he went back a few days later to find 2 stalks and a trampled area full of animal tracks.

It is a natural desire for organisms to want to expand their mind, get high, catch a buzz, etc. I don't advocate it but it's reality IMO. That and the fact this is America are reasons that I believe drugs should be legalized. Just stay home, don't drive and leave me the Hell out of it.

Now what was the question?

Correction. It doesn't have to be heated. The active ingredients vaporize at less than 200 degrees. THC is tetrahydrocannabinol.

I knew cloride didn't sound right, but just 'cause it doesn't have to reach 200 degrees doesn't mean it doesn't have to be heated. How would you get it to 150 degrees without heating it? I'm sure an owl's gut isn't much hotter than 100 degrees. And then it would have to vaporize before he shit it out.

People, and animals, can eat it at room temperature, right off the growing plant and get stoned. Seen it more than once.

Lovebirds, in particular, seem to love cannabis seed. A friend had one years ago and would feed the bird all his collected marijuana seeds. The bird would specifically pick them out of the other bird food and eat them first. After it had a bunch of them it would sit up on its perch with its eyes half closed slowly rocking back and forth and occasionally giving a contented chirp.

Officer: "Do you know how many of you fucking owls all hopped up on boo I've had to peel off the stinking streets in my day? TOO MANY - that's how many...

How about we just give your parents a call and tell them what you've been up to - huh? Would you like me to do that, hmm?

Your Parents.

I said; your parents.

You heard me.

Did you hear the one about the cows in Brazil who got into some bales of marijuana? They ate, and got the munchies, so they ate some more, and got more munchies. They wound up dying from overeating.

True story.

I consumed raw pot a few times. The first time I thought nothing would happen. 90 minutes latter I was flat out on my ass.
