Dogs Poisoned During Medical Marijuana Theft

VACAVILLE (CBS13) — Several dogs were poisoned during a medical marijuana robbery at a Vacaville residence, authorities said.

The Vacaville Police Department said a resident on the 300 block of Temple Drive called authorities early Saturday morning to report that someone had stolen nine marijuana plants, each valued at about $3,000, from his backyard between 3:30 a.m. and 5:15 a.m.

The victim also noticed his four Boxer dogs behaving oddly, and when he searched his backyard, he found pieces of hot dogs stuffed with blue pills strewn across his property.

Investigators said the pills were apparently Tylenol PM. The dogs appear to be doing well and the owner plans to have them treated by a veterinarian for any long term effects.

Anyone with information on the crime is asked to contact police at (707) 449-5200.

    I say legalize it, but keep it away from children under 21. If a chld under 18 is caught using it, the parents are fined $5000 the first time and will go to jail for 1 week for the second offense, because it is harmful to children.

    For the 18-21 years olds, if caught driving, they lose their driver’s license for 1 year, plus have to do 1 month of community service. We should have the same rule for alcohol. If your still using it over 21, you are just stuoid, but you have every right to be stupid. If you drive, you lose your license, and if you go to work high, you get fired on the spot! No lawsuits against the employer.

      Tylenol PM is already legal fool!!! Just go down to the store and buy some and you too can go to sleep like the dogs.

        Tommy: I can’t tell if you’re serious or joking. I’m pretty sure he meant weed, if you’re joking then okay, but if not, you probably need to cut back on whatever it is that is making you mind bogglingly stupid.

      And that works so well for booze? How about if you use and drive within 48 hours, you go to the chair? Sounds fair enough.

    I am a cat person but anyone who intentionally inflicts suffering on an animal, especially a very sentient creature such as a dog, should be shot to death by firing squad. I am not joking. I would like to be on that squad and get rid of the lowlife(s) who committed this cruelty.

    Also, pot is no big deal. Legalize it for people 21 and up.

    1. Debbie says:

      I agree. How many do you need on the squad?

    2. Debbie says:

      I agree except that at least they didn’t use an intentionally deadly drug. I’m so glad they are okay. As far as I’m concerned, legalize the stuff. It is no worse than alcohol or tobacco.

    Marijuana makes you stupid. that being said, you have a right to be stupid, the only thing government should do is inform people the REAL hazards of MJ use.

      Bob Marley. Ever hear of him? He died in his 30’s from LUNG CANCER and was stoned all day every day.

      1. HeavyG says:

        omg really? “May 11, 1981, at the age of 36. The spread of melanoma to his lungs and brain caused his death”

        Make the Sun Illegal and be sure to confirm the validity of your rants. Whos stoned now?

      2. tim says:

        Bob Marley died of skin cancer. They discovered it under one of his toenails and it spread throughout his body over the next three years.

      3. Bubba Marley says:

        Marley died from skin melanoma that spread to his lungs not lung cancer from smoking pot

    One would have to be insane or have a death wish to live in California nowadays. After 40 years of leftist and treasonous state assemblies, today’s California is what you get. The state is inundated with criminals, gangs, illegal Mexcians, dopers, deadbeats, nutcases, and the welfare set. Wow, but you guys have the big one to look forward to. And it is coming.

    1. rhadagastt says:

      And when the big one comes lets hope and prey the entire state just falls into the ocean. Nobody wants to have to pay for the cleanup of a land loaded with what you just listed. Good riddance to the dead weight that liberal California has created.

    they’re just dogs…american animal lovers are a scary group! death by firing squad for this?!?!?!? in a lot of countries, dogs arent even allowed in the house!

  6. Mike Alright says:

    Not to worry Pam, when the SHTF in the US, which it just may soon, you will have to utilize your firing squad skills. As you obviously look forward to physically harming another human, you will be pleased. Oh, and hunny, you women will also soon lose your unappreciated special rights you currently enjoy.

    9 marijuana plants valued at 3000 each…..right, Im sure this medicinal user needed 27,000 dollars worth of pot…….everyone should be able to grow $27,000 dollars worth of pot right. I mean, who could possibly be tempted to get a prescription for weed and sell…….regulate that ish and legalize it befoer someone gets killed or injured during a robbery

    1. Dave says:

      Yes, there are sooo many CA people taking advantage of the current system. Just legalize and make it like cigarettes and alcohol…stop the violence and drug dealing criminal organizations.

    Robbery, burglary and simple theft are distinctly different crimes, and a reporter should know the difference.
