Maine-based seafood restaurant Charlotte's Legendary Lobster Pound in Southwest Harbor is experimenting with cannabis to sedate lobsters before they're killed. Restaurant owner Charlotte Gill placed a test lobster she named Roscoe into a covered box with water at the bottom. She then had marijuana smoke blown into the box for Roscoe to inhale.

Later, Gill removed the bands on Roscoe's claws, and the lobster was allowed to roam free in the tank for nearly three weeks without any incidents of aggression.
