MOSCOW – Russia’s long winter will just fly by for
a herd of Russian cows which, a newspaper reported on Tuesday, will be
fed confiscated marijuana over the cold months.
Drug workers said they adopted the unusual form of animal husbandry after
they were forced to destroy the sunflowers and maize crops that the 40
ton of marijuana had been planted among, Novye Izvestia daily reported.
"There is simply no other way out. You see, the fields are planted
with feed crops and if we remove it all the cows will have nothing to eat," a
Federal Drugs Control Service spokeswoman for the Urals region of Sverdlovsk
told the paper. "I don’t know what the milk will be
like after this."
