If you heard there was a raccoon high on marijuana around, you’d probably think someone was cracking a silly joke. But, when a woman dashed at the door of Wayne Township fire station in Indianapolis, USA, the officers were shocked to see a raccoon, who had smoked excessive marijuana and was completely “stoned”.

The pet owner ran straight for help in the dead of the night to seek treatment for the “sick” creature. While talking to one of the media organisations, captain Mike Pruitt of Wayne Township fire station said that they were “quite worried” to see a woman seeking for help at such wee hours.

“As many times as the doorbell on the firehouse was pushed, the firefighters were quite certain that something bad was going on outside,” Pruitt told WTHR News. Reportedly, the pet raccoon appeared very lethargic and showed symptoms typical of a person exposed to marijuana, the fire captain added.
