Talk about your potted pork! Bucking Boars Ranch, a longtime vendor at Seattle's Pike Place market is now selling meat from pigs that have been fed with marijuana plants.
"All we're trying to do is to help the local ranchers and to figure out some ways to shorten the carbon footprint," von Schneidau said.
Cannabis farming is legal in the state of Washington and the so-called "pot pigs" are fed on the stems, root bulbs and oversized leaves of marijuana plants that aren't ideal for smoking.
"[We are] putting some weed to the feed, if you know what I mean," von Schneidau joked in a video advertising a "Pot Pig Gig": a multi-course meal featuring Pike Place produce and the marijuana-fed meat.
And how does it taste? "Savory," reports von Schneidau.
The meat is out of stock for now, save for a small amount he plans to turn into proscuitto. But bacon lovers hungry for their next fix will be happy to know the butcher is planning to experiment with another batch of ganja-gorged swine soon.
