In Jackson County, Florida, a man thought his dog was sick, so the took him to the vet. He was shaking constantly, pacing & panting, and overall acting unusual. The vet examined his dog, whose name is Little Guy. When the animal tested positive for methamphetamine’s, the man was arrested for animal cruelty.
I’ll be honest, I find this case a little bit disturbing. All drug use can lead to some kind of second hand exposure. Are we really going to start charging addicts for abusing around their pets? Weather a person’s drug of choice is tobacco, cocaine, or meth, those around them are chemically exposed through second hand smoke or lingering toxic residues. Moreover, we still don’t take the problem of children exposed to drugs seriously. Are we really going to start caring more about the dogs than we do kids?
