What's So Bad About Giving a Lobster a Blindfold and a Last Smoke?
« on: September 22, 2018, 10:05:35 AM »
I'm not sure about the blindfold. Apparently TPTB in Maine are quick to get to the bottom of this lobster mistreatment by Charlotte the Lobster Lady. Can't have restaurant patrons ingesting microdoses of marijuana without their knowledge and consent, I suppose.

(I'm imagining some chubby guy up from Beantown...."I know I ate two already, but bring me another one. I'm REALLY hungry for lobster tonight, for some reason.")

Another $500 dinner for two. Sounds good for business.

Seems fair to me....if they take lobsters out of pots, why can't they put pot into the lobsters?

State Probes Eatery That Gave Pot to Lobsters

(NEWSER) State health inspectors are investigating a Maine lobster restaurant that tried to mellow out lobsters with marijuana, the AP reports. The Portland Press Herald reports Charlotte's Legendary Lobster Pound in Southwest Harbor remains open but has stopped allowing customers to request meat from lobsters sedated with marijuana. Owner Charlotte Gill is a state-licensed medical marijuana caregiver.

Gill said Friday she had started offering "smoked" lobster meat recently and hopes to resume sales by mid-October. Maine Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman Emily Spencer wouldn't say whether the state had asked Gill to halt such sales. It's unknown whether pot smoke actually calms lobsters or has any effect on their meat. "The process is for the physical comfort of the lobster, not the consumer," says Gill on her Facebook page. (In related news, President Trump's tariff war may hurt the lobster business.)
