As marijuana legalization spreads, more pets are getting high

As more jurisdictions legalize marijuana, veterinarians across the country say they are seeing a sharp increase in cases of pets accidentally getting high.

Regulating marijuana in the workplace will become more puzzling for employers and employees alike on Nov. 8, when voters will decide whether to allow or expand legal access to pot in nine more states. Legalization backers predict that all or most of the ballot measures will pass, making 2016 the point of no return in the long drive to end federal marijuana prohibition.
