Should We Get Lobsters High To Make Boiling Them More Humane?


Bring on lobster rolls, friends! Damn I love lobster, but I feel guilty when they make a splash in boiling water. A restaurant in Maine got lobsters high AF prior to cooking to see if that would make their deaths more humane.

Charlotte Gill and her kitchen staff claimed to put lobsters in a sealed tub and filling it with marijuana smoke in an attempt to take the edge off of the boiling water. The research results showed that after 20 minutes the lobsters were impaired and then left to chill for a bit prior to cooking. The findings? Too minimal to suggest that stoned lobsters suffered less when meeting that super hot boiling water.
