And finally, to round out my afternoon:
Swiss cows to come of grass wtih cannabis fodder ban:
Swiss farmers will no longer be allowed to produce milk or cheese that could be tainted with cannabis, after the Swiss government banned hemp, the plant used to make the drug, from animal fodder.
The ban from March 1 covers all types of hemp, a fibrous plant that is also used to make rope and fabric, because the different varieties all contain the psychotropic substance THC, the federal agricultural department said.
Swiss authorities only started looking at hemp more closely after an agricultural supplier advertised the plant as fodder with the claim that it improved the quality of milk.
Juerg Jordi, a spokesman for the department, said milk was a natural product that should not contain mind-altering substances.
Only about 30 hectares (75 acres) of hemp planted in Switzerland is thought to have been used for animal fodder and was normally a variety that contained little or no THC.
Thomas Jaeggi, a cattle specialist at the main Swiss farmers union (USP), supported the ban, pointing out that farmers wanted to preserve the reputation of their products, notably Swiss cheese exports.
A Swiss agricultural research institute, Agroscope, said there was scientific evidence that THC passed from the stomach of ruminants into their milk and could be ingested by humans.
Researcher Daniel Guidon highlighted studies in Pakistan which found traces of THC in children who had drunk milk from cows that had been munching wild hemp.
Those crazy Swiss.
