Instead of going in the pot, the pot has apparently been going into the blissed-out ducks of one happy-go-lucky French farm. Now farmer Michel Rouyer has been handed a one-month suspended sentence after cops discovered marijuana plants and dried pot on his farm—even though he insists he was just using the dope to "deworm" his birds. He claims there's "no better worming substance," and that his flock is in excellent health, notes the BBC. Rouyer admits he also uses the pot, authorities said ... he apparently doesn't have worms.
