Paris, Nov 22 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A farmer in France came up with an ingenious way to rid his ducks of worms - i.e. by making the worms ‘high’. He allegedly fed the ducks with cannabis.

For his action, the farmer has been given a suspended jail sentence and fined a whooping 500 euros. He defended his actions by saying that after the “deworming” exercise, his ducks are in excellent condition with no worms at all.

The man in question is Michel Rouyer and he was engaged in stealing and when the police raided his house, they found 12 cannabis plants and about 5 kg of the leaves stuffed in the house. When he was questioned, he said he does smoke some of the weeds. He further told the police that there was “no better worming substance” for the ducks than the cannabis.

A judge did not however believe that is the best way to keep the ducks in good health and sentenced Rouyer to a month suspended jail term along with a fine of 500 euros.

The police also admitted that they have not heard of such a claim in their lives. Rouyer is a native of Gripperie-Saint-Symphorien on France the Atlantic coast.

He must be pretty lucky to be walking free again.
