Only if the pets are either in pain or give their consent.

This is a thing?

I don't see exactly why one would ban it but I also don't see why anyone would possibly want to do it.

a better question would be "should it legal to activate receptors or release neurotransmitters in the brains of one's pets?"

although, in practice, you're altering the neurochemistry of an animal by simply interacting with it, no?

You shouldn't force the pet to get high. Like blowing smoke in it's face and forcing them to sit there and inhale it. Animals do not like smoke from my experience. Now cooking it a little meal with cannabutter....

It's a trick question, of course.  I voted yes because you asked about owners, and therein you make an assumption.  Owners can do what they like with their property, including drugging it.  If we presume that people actually own other animals, then it follows that it should be legal.  The better question would ask whether people can actually own another animals to begin with.

By that logic, beastiality with one's pets should be legal as well, no?

Yes.  (Of course, in such questions the presumption of legalized marijuna is valid.  If we get into too many conditionals, it becomes a mind-warping game.)

But I've never really approved of the term "owner" when I see it on commercials.  It offends me deeply, honestly.  And I don't really subscribe to the notion that the pets are actually owned, in the usual sense.  Nevertheless, if we're going to buy into that assumption, then yes, you own it the way you own a pen or a dildo or a pair of underwear, and are entitled to do with it as you please.

Too much alcohol can be dangerous to an animal. My father once gave whiskey to some type of hunting dog (maybe a coon hound or a beagle?) and it got sick and died the next morning.

By that logic, bestiality with one's pets should be legal as well, no?

It's called The Santorum Rule, not Atlas' Law.

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

Agreed. I voted no because the complications of the pot may be too much for the dog to handle.
