Annals of law, ursine marijuana dept.

A Montana court has ruled that if you smoke marijuana at your job at a private park, and then you get attacked by a bear, the marijuana use in of itself does not disqualify you to receive worker’s comp:

Judge Shea concluded that “[w]hen it comes to attacking humans, grizzlies are equal opportunity maulers; attacking without regard to race, creed, ethnicity, or marijuana usage.” The judge characterized Hopkins use of marijuana to “kick off” a day of working with grizzly bears as “ill-advised” and “mind-bogglingly stupid.” There was no evidence, however, that the pot smoking contributed significantly to Hopkins’ injuries.

This is great news for my friends at 420bears.com.
