Pot Fed Pigs: Washington Farmer Uses Medical Marijuana Dispensary Byproduct In Pig Feed [VIDEO]

  on

With the legalization of the use of marijuana in the states of Colorado and Washington comes the plethora of new uses for the cannabis plant. In the state of Washington, Jeremy Gross, a pig farmer, is adding byproduct from medical marijuana dispensaries to his pigs’ feed. William Von Schneidau, a butcher, came up with the idea of using the byproduct in pig feed to enhance the flavor of the pork he sells. He sells the pot-fed pork at the famous Pike Place Market in Seattle, Wash., at a premium price. The pork can cost from $12.50 per pound for pork shoulder to $16.90 per pound for pork chops. While the meat is currently being sold in the market, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration hasn’t approved the additive mixture being fed to the pigs.
