So far, opposition for a proposed medical marijuana bill has been qualified as nothing less than absurd. Topping the list of the most outrageous claims, DEA special agent, Matt Fairbanks, stated in testimony to the Utah Senate that “Reefer Madness” would cause the state’s wildlife to be stoned all the time. If you think is a joke, think again. According to Fairbanks, who’s responsible for eliminating marijuana from Utah’s back-country landscape, the main purveyors of marijuana crimes in nature, are rabbits, and marijuana legalization would only be contributing to their addiction. When recalling a past event where he encountered one these stoned critters, Fairbanks spoke about the day he realized “rabbits that had cultivated a taste for the marijuana….” Stating how: “One of them refused to leave us, and we took all the marijuana around him, but his natural instincts to run were somehow gone.”
