Illinois is Threatening to Kill Dogs Over Marijuana Legalization

  • by: Kelsey B.

Illinois law enforcement is trying to trick us into believing that if marijuana is legalized, they will be forced to euthanize hundreds of drug sniffing dogs. But it's just a red herring. 

Sign the petition to tell Illinois law enforcement to end this false dichotomy and promise not to euthanize any dogs when marijuana is legalized here. 

Most drug sniffing dogs are trained to sniff out everything from cocaine to cannabis to heroine, but they are not trained to identify which one they've found. That means that if marijuana is legalized in Illinois (go here if you want it to be), the dogs would need to be retrained or retired. The other 9 states in the nation that have legal recreational cannabis use have done just that - retrained or retired their dogs.

But some Illinois law enforcement agencies are threatening to just euthanize the dogs instead. They are trying to scare people who love animals out of voting for legal marijuana. But the choice is not legal marijuana or living dogs. We can have both!

Sign on to tell Illinois law enforcement to stop the scare tactics and promise not to euthanize any dogs based on the legalizaiton of marijuana.
