'I dont know what the milk will be like after this,' drug agency officer says
Updated: 5:03 a.m. ET Aug. 16, 2005 MOSCOW - Russias long winter will just fly by for a herd of Russian cows which, a newspaper reported on Tuesday, will be fed confiscated marijuana over the cold months.
Drug workers said they adopted the unusual form of animal husbandry after they were forced to destroy the sunflowers and maize crops that the 40 ton of marijuana had been planted among, Novye Izvestia daily reported.
There is simply no other way out. You see, the fields are planted with feed crops and if we remove it all the cows will have nothing to eat, a Federal Drugs Control Service spokeswoman for the Urals region of Sverdlovsk told the paper. I dont know what the milk will be like after this.

I'm pretty sure it's going to make those Oreo's taste a hell of a lot better.
Someone wake up the Drug Warriors so they can warn us all how dangerous this is.
I would be interested in the results of what occurs .... Is pot a viable food source for cattle?
"I just had a very large T-Bone steak, but I still have the munchies"
Beefer Madness! Sorry, I couldn't resist.
It aint' the brownies you need to watch out for, its the milk.
I've got an advertising slogan for the new Russian corn-sunflower-hemp cattle chow ----
"Putting the Hey! into hay!"
I think so. I understand that horses love it.
"I love you, maaan. I love everybody."
It was common practice to feed The Weed to cows and birds until the Gov mucked it up. Birds sang better and cows gave better, happier milk.
As a kid in dairy country in the '50s, I witnessed for myself, Feds were still burning fields of Pot on local dairy farms.
The Russkie official is an idiot, one among billions.
should make for some "high quality", stoned-ground beef
Great cheese comes from happy cows.
I remember my mom telling us how as a kid she & her friends would go behind a neighbor's barn and smoke some kind of "funny weed" that was growing there.:)
