Milk and the Munchies

thcAlas, now I understand the popularity of the famous Liechtensteinian milk shake.

Farmers in Liechtenstein are being stopped from feeding cannabis to their cows, according to this AP news piece. Turns out the stuff the cows and other livestock been eating – hemp – contains THC, (the molecule to the right), the active substance in hashish…the stuff that gets you HIGH. And it turns out traces of the drug have been filtering through to the milk of dairy cows fed with the plant. So the tiny Alpine state decided they needed some cool new rules, pronto, or they’d be bogus, too. (reference, anyone?). Needless to say milk and Fritos sales are expected to decline simultaneously.
