Stoned rabbits — they're what's on the mind of at least one DEA agent who gave testimony against a Utah bill that would allow medical patients with debilitating conditions to obtain edible marijuana.

According to The Washington Post, Matt Fairbanks, a member of the "marijuana eradication" team in Utah, worries that bunny rabbits may eat marijuana plants at designated grow sites.

At some grow sites he's been to, Fairbanks said he'd observed "rabbits that had cultivated a taste for the marijuana."

"One of them refused to leave us," he explained, "and we took all the marijuana around him, but his natural instincts to run were somehow gone."

On Thursday, the Utah Senate panel approved the bill despite, or perhaps because of, Fairbanks' testimony. It will now go to the full Utah Senate for debate.

"This bill introduces a very small element of highly regulated freedom to willing patients and willing doctors," Saratoga Springs Republican Sen. Mark Madsen told The Associated Press.
