A tiny rodent took advantage of the legalization of cannabis in Canada, and enjoyed spending time around a cannabis plant
Rodents are terrible and farmers hate them. A small family of hungry rodents can destroy an entire field within a few hours. Some say these pests carry diseases and use dangerous chemicals to get rid of them. Well, this cannabis plant put up a good fight and taught the little rodent a lesson.
Cannabis is legal in New Brunswick, Canada, and it seems like mice take every advantage of it.
The stoned mouse
Colin Sullivan had an uninvited guest at his property. He noticed that a little mouse has been munching on his plant for two days in a row. What happened next? He found the mouse. It was lying near the plant. Unconsciously.
The mouse had to go through rehab. Sullivan kept it in a “Detox cage” for six days, and then released into the wild.
“For two days in a row I’ve caught this little pothead taking leaves off of my plant and eating them until he passes out,” Sullivan wrote in his Facebook post. “He’s missing an ear so it may be self-medication for his PTSD but I still think it’s time for an intervention. I’ll let him sleep this one off but when he wakes up, he’s getting a real stern talking to.”

“They tried to make me go to rehab…”
Sullivan kept his fans updated. His little fella was enjoying his time in the Perspex cage. Not really enjoying.
“So it’s been a couple of rough days for our little baked buddy here and despite a belly ache and a wicked bad case of the munchies I think he’ll make a full recovery. He’s been weaned to one medium leaf per day and seems to be adjusting well. One day at a time my friend, one day at a time.”
The mouse finished his rehab and Sullivan sent it home. There’s nothing better than a sober mouse, right?
“On The Rodent To Redemption,” Sullivan wrote in the update. “After a long and desperate battle with addiction, this little mouse has grinded up his struggle, picked out the seeds and stems, and is ready to roll out. Weed all benefit from joining together to help the smoke clear in any addict’s life.
He did his very cannibest and was awarded his first Twelve Step chip. I may have been the one to open his cage but he was the one who set himself free. So long my friend, till we meet again.”
Thousands of people shared Sullivan’s post, and the comments section was filled with jokes, good wishes, and positive thoughts.
“I’m happy to hear about his recovery,” Cody Mushrall wrote.
“I can just hear Cheech the mouse going … ’that was some trip maan … don’t know where I was… but I ended up in jail,’” Rhyll O’Keefe wrote.
Wendy Chaplin added, “Withdrawal is hard! Thanks for caring for the little stoner!”
Sullivan used the mouse saga to share his story. He praised his wife, Robyn, for everything she has done for him. The beautiful lady saved his life, and she is the main reason he has stayed sober. His friends and followers congratulated Sullivan on his great success.
The legalization of cannabis in New Brunswick
The Canadian government legalized cannabis in 2018. Each province has a different approach to the use of cannabis plants and their products.
“With our decisions, actions, and legislation, we are building a culture that is safe, legal, responsible and limited to adults,” reads the official website of the New Brunswick government. “We are prioritizing public health education and awareness while taking advantage of the economic opportunity this new industry presents.”
Canadians can start off consuming cannabis at 19. Licensed retailers sell it, and individuals can possess as much as 30 grams of cannabis at a time. Landlords can restrict tenants from consuming or growing cannabis. If they permit the use of tobacco, they can’t restrict the smoking of cannabis.
“It is important that New Brunswickers understand the risks in order to make informed decisions on their personal cannabis use.”
