NEVADA: Pets might soon be able to use pot under a bill introduced Tuesday in the Nevada Legislature.
Democratic Sen. Tick Segerblom is sponsoring the measure that would allow animal owners to get marijuana for their pet if a veterinarian certifies the animal has an illness that might be alleviated by the drug.
Segerblom said he’s concerned that some animals might have adverse reactions, but “you don’t know until you try,” he said.
Some veterinarians who have given cannabis to sick and dying pets say it has relieved their symptoms, although the substance hasn’t been proven as a painkiller for animals.
