A Nevada lawmaker on Tuesday proposed a bill in the Legislature that would grant ailing pets legal access to medical marijuana.
The bill, put forward by Democrat Tick Segerblom, would let pet owners obtain cannabis for their animals if a veterinarian confirmed it "may mitigate the symptoms or effects" of a chronic or debilitating medical condition, reports Curtis Skinner at Reuters.
Contrary to scare stories and misinformation in the mainstream press, cannabis is non-toxic to pets, and in fact to all mammals.
The bill also includes new rules for human patients, including regulations for medicla marijuana dispensaries. It also drops penalties for motorists found driving with marijuana in their system.
