In more crazy news in the restaurant business, seafood restaurant owner Charlotte Gill, who runs Legendary Lobster Pound in Southwest Harbor in Maine, decided to serve up lobster, crayfish and other shell-fish that have been sedated with THC infused water before being boiled alive.
Ms Gil says the shellfish are much calmer over the course of the next three weeks before death, and now, her customers have an option of whether to order regular seafood, or the seafood that was high on marijuana (THC) before being cooked to death.
Ms Gil says that it is a more “humane” way of serving lobster and crayfish, since the bottom feeders were sufficiently high before their death. She did her first trial with a lobster named Roscoe, where she pumped THC infused smoke through the box of water, making the lobster in question very calm throughout the three week waiting period.
Roscoe didn’t attack other lobsters in the tank because he was high, and after the trial, Charlotte set Roscoe free back into the sea as a “thank you.”
Charlotte Gil is a licensed medical marijuana caregiver that now offers the customers the chance to try a “high before they died” seafood plate. Ms Gil told the Mount Desert Island, “I feel bad that when lobsters come here, there is no exit strategy.”
“It’s a unique place, and you get to do such unique things, but at the expense of this little creature. I’ve really been trying to figure out how to make it better.”
“The animal is already going to be killed. It is far more humane to make it a kinder passage” she said.
Ms Gil has now decided to create a new method on demand, and build a bigger tank for her THC sedated lobsters and crayfish, so that she can smoke out more shellfish at the same time.
It is not known whether the taste of the shellfish will be any different, or if they tend to eat themselves bigger as a result of the THC that they ingested before their death.
We thought we had truly heard it all before, but then another story comes along and blows our mind. In hindsight, as dreary as it can get in Maine, for a lobster, perhaps they deserve to be high before they die.
