Recreational marijuana became legal on July 1. Greenhill Humane Society is reminding pet owners not to use pot around their animals because of potential health risks. 

Marijuana smoke and edibles are dangerous to pets. Greenhill Executive Director Cary Lieberman says people need to be aware of marijuana plants and second hand smoke around pets.

Lieberman: “Plants definitely should be kept out of range of dogs and cats that can jump up on counters. And foods containing marijuana or the marijuana itself should be stored in containers that are secure and pet proof.”
