Maine government says NO to getting lobsters high on marijuana before cooking them.

Maine health inspectors said “food served to consumers at licensed eating places and affected by marijuana, as has been described with this establishment, as adulterated and therefore illegal.

On the decision was made by the department because regulators do not currently “have information on the health implications or effects of ‘sedating’ lobsters with marijuana.

Charlotte Gill, owner of Charlotte’s Legendary Lobster Pound is the one that started the practice and disagrees with the findings. She claims that THC breaks down completely by 392 degrees, therefore we will use both steam as well as a heat process that will expose the meat to 420 degree extended temperature, in order to ensure there is no possibility of carryover effect.
