Seattle butcher markets marijuana, vodka fed pork

- The Washington Times - Tuesday, June 18, 2013

A butcher shop in Seattle is turning heads with its marijuana and vodka-fed pork.

"The pig farmer has been feeding them marijuana for the last two and a half months of their life and they've been happy as hell," said William Von Schneidau, owner of the BB Ranch at Pike Place market.

Von Schneidau saw the opportunity to start feeding his livestock pot when Washington voters decided to legalize the substance in the last election, KING 5 News reported.

"And then all of a sudden marijuana, you know, became legal a few months ago and somehow, I don't know how, I met the commercial growers and they needed to get rid of some of their stuff. So rather than going into the compost pile we said, 'Lets try it out.' So here we go," he added.

The pigs — raised on a farm about an hour outside of Seattle — are also on a "rock star diet" of vodka from Woodinville's Project V.
