SHEEP HERD DEVOURS HUNDREDS OF POUNDS OF POT

A herd of sheep in Greece invaded a medical cannabis greenhouse, consuming at least a hundred kilograms of pot. The incident was triggered by displaced livestock after Storm Daniel ripped through the Mediterranean country. Sheep in Europe are known to be attracted to eating cannabis, often becoming unruly or behaving strangely from the effects. The sheep were looking for shelter after heavy rain and flooding in the region. The flooding has struck a huge blow to livestock and agricultural production, with nearly 70% of the cotton crop in Thessaly, Greece, estimated to have been destroyed.


In January 2023, Greece's first-ever medical cannabis production plant was inaugurated at Examilia, near Corinth. Tikun Europe, a subsidiary of Israel-based Tikun Olam, invested €40 million into Greek operations with a 56,000 square meter area in Examilia and 21,000 square meters of greenhouse space. The investment was initially welcomed by the then-Greek Development & Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis, who said it would be able to export the product throughout Europe.


New medical cannabis laws come with new responsibilities, such as livestock getting into medical marijuana. In 2014, sheep in Surrey ate £4,000 worth of pot on a farm, and in 2016, stoned sheep high on cannabis caused mayhem in a Welsh village after eating leftover plants from a cannabis factory illegally dumped on the side of the road.
