A French duck farmer, Messieur Royeur, was caught feeding his ducks with cannabis because they all had worms.
He maintained that the cannabis was the best cure for his ducks from the worms and normal worm-killing remedies just didn't work.
He has opened up a massive "can of worms" in France because animal lovers, normally high on cannabis themselves, claim that it's just a waste of good weed and the poor animals suffer.
Smoking cannabis is illegal in France and now the farmer faces a hefty fine and a jail sentence.
Many animal rights campaigners have come forward offering their services to keep the ducks fed hoping also to syphon off a couple of grams themselves, pourquoi no?
The Gendarmerie have now released Messieur Royeur under the conditions that he stops feeding the ducks with cannabis, stops having a joint himself and in the future kills the worms with a more accepted method, by giving them meths to drink, not forbidden in France.
The Gendarmerie don't mind alcoholic ducks for Christmas, but certainly don't want ducks on their tables who have been high on cannabis, pourquoi? (what a load of Quack, Quack, Francais!)
