Wtf I like a merlot!
DeLoach Heritage Reserve Merlot 2010:
Deep ruby red color. The DeLoach 2010 California Merlot offers enticing aromas of black cherry and mulberry fruit with hints of cigar box. On the palate, luscious flavors of blueberry and black plum mingle with notes of raspberry, dusty chocolate and leather. A well-structured wine with smooth tannins, this Merlot is wonderful to enjoy right now.
Just as proponents of medical marijuana argue that the drug’s active ingredient THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) helps alleviate chronic pain, reduce nausea and stimulate the appetites of terminally-ill human patients, California veterinarian Dr. Doug Kramer recently argued that the drug can have the same therapeutic effect on sick pets — especially at the end of their lives.
Kramer got the idea from a patient who inquired about obtaining medical marijuana for her pet when steroids and other pain medications stopped doing the trick, according to a recent interview with Vice. Similarly, he claims the drug alleviated his cancer-stricken Husky dog Nikita’s chronic pain and stimulated its appetite. ”At the first dosage, she was up and around,” he told Vice. ”I didn’t cure her. It was just a question of increasing her quality of life and putting off inevitably euthanizing her.”
Kramer also claims THC can help stimulate cats’ appetites, and he told Mother Jones that people have used cannabis to help manage their pets’ inflammation from arthritis. One woman even gave her horse “cannabis-infused butter” to ease the painful swelling he developed from a foot disease called laminitis, Mother Jones reports.
