SWIM is sure SWIY has already read similar but incase not - When SWIY smokes weed
they know what effect it will have on them and know its due to smoking it that these effects occur. If the cat "sniffs" enough of this smoke (even if he likes its smell) to get high the cat might be both confused and distressed by it.
SWIY should also be aware that however innocent SWIYs intentions, and however well SWIY describes the situation (that they are Not forcing the cat to do this), some people will still immediately think animal harm/abuse and go nuts at you.
Yea but dont you think after like the 10th time the cat would figure out hey if i stick my nose in this im going to get this strange feeling again... Swim sais the only difference he has seen in its behavior is it just mellows out... if anything at all. After it gets high its still the same happy little guy he was before.(he is the cutest dam thing) And yea very true about people (with closed mindes) trippin... "dam those druggies, there smokin that wacky tobbacy with that cat again. Call the authorities Margret, and get me a beer while your at it!!!"
(humans CAN od on weed too in absorbant ammounts, and swim takes his hat off to anyone who can consume half the lethal dose in 15 minutes lol)
It is physically impossible to take enough marijuana
that it would kill you. The lethal dose of marijuana is at least one-third your body weight, consumed in fifteen minutes. See http://druglibrary.org/schaffer/library/mj_overdose.htm
[h3]this looks like to swim the cat just gets high. And notice "DEATH" is not one of the symptoms.[/h3]
[h3]What are the symptoms of cats exposed to marijuana?[/h3]
The symptoms are most commonly the same sort you might observe in humans:
- Uncoordinated, Falling over
- Depression, Sometimes Alternating with Agitation or Anxiety
- Bradycardia (Slow Heart Rate)
- Seizures, Sometimes Coma
7.2.2 Animal data
extract, the LD50
in mice is:
oral 21.6 g/kg

THIS IS CRAZY BELOW THEY INJECT A 20 POUND DOG WITH 2 OUNCES INTO ITS JUGULAR VIEN AND IT WAS FINE
At the beginning of our observations careful search of the literature on the subject was made to determine the toxicity of the hemp. Not a single case of fatal poisoning have we been able to find reported, although often alarming symptoms may occur. A dog weighting 25 pounds received an injection of two ounces of an active U.S.P. fluid extract in the jugular vein with the expectation that it would certainly be sufficient to produce death. To our surprise the animal, after being unconscious for about a day and a half, recovered completely. This dog received, not alone the active constituents of the drug
, but also the amount of alcohol
contained in the fluid extract. Another dog received about 7 grammes of Solid Extract Cannabis with the same result. We have never been able to give an animal a sufficient quantity of a U.S.P. or other preparation of the Cannabis (Indica Americana) to produce death.
From what Swim has read it looks like the chances of killing your cat on THC is pretty slim.
Swim does not condone forcing any animal against its free will to participate in swiu's smoke session.
But if the cat wants to get high.... why not let it?
