Ever see a rock lobster get stoned? Then head to Maine, where a restaurant is getting lobsters baked before they’re boiled. Charlotte’s Legendary Lobster Pound has begun getting its lobsters high on marijuana smoke before killing them, saying it’s ‘more humane’. Owner Charlotte Gill says the stoned lobsters act less aggressive than their counterparts, and that any residual THC is burned off when the lobster is steamed. As it happens, Gill is also a ‘licensed medical marijuana caregiver’ in the state of Maine, so this is a chance to combine her two loves.

WHATCHU THINK ABOUT THIS? The resturant owner is experimenting with getting lobsters high off #marijuana smoke before killing and cooking them, believing it to be more humane than the traditional methods. Roscoe, the test lobster, took one for the team after being placed into a box with a few inches of water, and marijuana smoke was then blown through the water, into the box. Apparently he was calmer, less aggressive and didn’t give any of his fellow lobsters those claws. 🤔🤔🤔 #BakedOffTheirSkulls
