Mouse who fainted after chewing marijuana leaves

A CURIOUS mouse in Canada was caught chopping on cannabis leaves before being found passed out on its back “high”. Colin Sullivan, from New Brunswick, Canada where cannabis is legal, said he found the rodent pinching leaves from his plants for two days in a row last week. Four images show the inquisitive mouse nibbling at both the stem of the plant leaves before the substance took effect. Photos captured shortly after show the rodent lying in the middle of a heap of leaves, completely comatose. Colin decided to put the animal in a cage where he started him on a “12 step programme” to keep it away from the plants long enough to get it back on its feet. Six days later the mouse was released back into the wild after Colin awarded him his own 12 step chip - a memento given to addicts to celebrate their commitment to recovery. Colin posted about the discovery on Facebook last week (TUE SEPT 1ST), writing: “For two days in a row I've caught this little pothead taking leaves off of my plant and eating them until he passes out. “He’s missing an ear so it may be self medication for his PTSD but I still think it's time for an Intervention. “I’ll let him sleep this one off but when he wakes up he's getting a real stern talking to.” Two days later, Colin posted an update on the mouse situation - alongside the mouse in a perspex cage.

A cute little mouse was spotted munching on some cannabis leaves before being found lying flat out on his back.

A resident of New Brunswick in Canada, where growing a limited amount of cannabis is legal, said he caught the adorable thief nicking some leaves from his plants two days in a row.

 The man shared photos of the mouse to his Facebook page, in which you could see the little fella nibbling away at the leaves.

And it seems as though the plant had quite an impact on the mouse, as a follow-up photo showed it lying down in some leaves, seemingly high as a kite.

After seeing the tiny mouse passed out, the man decided to scoop him up and keep an eye on him for a few days to ensure there were no ill-effects from his drug binge – six days later he was released back into the wild.

In a series of hilarious posts, which have since gone viral, the man wrote: “For two days in a row I’ve caught this little pot head taking leaves off of my plant and eating them until he passes out.

“He’s missing an ear so it may be self-med for his PTSD but I still think it’s time for an Intervention. I’ll let him sleep this one off but when he wakes up, he’s getting a real stern talking to.”

In a follow up, he explained: “So it’s been a couple of rough days for our little baked buddy here and despite a belly ache and a wicked bad case of the munchies I think he’ll make a full recovery.

“He’s been weaned to one medium leaf per day and seems to be adjusting well. One day at a time, my friend, one day at a time.”

A final update read: “On the Rodent to Redemption! After a long and desperate battle with addiction this little mouse has grinded up his struggle, picked out the seeds and stems and is ready to roll out.
