So your dog is literally on its last legs. The end is near and Fido has stopped eating. You want to bring an end to his pain. What to do? Under a bill proposed this week in Nevada, you can get him medical marijuana.
Legislation introduced in the state Senate on Tuesday would allow pets to use pot under a veterinarian’s supervision. Democratic Sen. Tick Segerblom, the sponsor of SB 372, says there are guidelines, even for Fido: Officials would be able to issue a pet medical marijuana card only if the animal’s owner is a Nevada resident and a vet certifies the creature has an illness that might be helped by marijuana. And the illness need not be fatal.
Segerblom told the Los Angeles Times that the idea isn’t as far-fetched as it might seem. “People these days believe that marijuana can cure everything under the sun,” he said, “from the inability to eat if you’re terminally ill to problems with your nervous system. So if your dog has a nerve disease or uncontrollable tremors, this might be able to help it.”
The state senator said he has received calls from people with a question: If they have a medical marijuana card, can they then give the drug to their pets? The answer is, ahem, no: Fido would need his own card to be legal.
