Suppose this will increase their appetites? Because they already eat like, well, you know, pigs:
Part flavor experiment, part green recycling, part promotion and bolstered by the legalization of recreational marijuana in Washington state, pot excess has been fed to the hogs by their owners, pig farmer Jeremy Gross and Seattle butcher William von Schneidau, since earlier this year.
Gross and von Schneidau now sell their "pot pig" cuts at von Schneidau's butcher shop in Seattle's Pike Place Market at a premium price - bacon is $17 a pound while chops go for $16.90 a pound.
"He's like 'let's see what kind of flavor it gives it.' So we ran it and it gave good flavor," Gross said. "It's like anything else, what you feed them is what they're going to taste like. It's almost like a savory alfalfa fed cow or alfalfa fed pig."

Gross said can see no effect on the pigs.
Already all pigs do is sleep and eat, he said.
But his farm manager mentioned that one of the more salty sows mellows out after a feeding.
Just what the world needs. More mellow pigs.
