With more states moving to legalize either medicinal marijuana, or marijuana for recreational use, House Rabbit Society cautions our members to keep marijuana out of reach of their rabbits.

So far, there is no evidence on marijuana toxicity in rabbits, so we don’t know whether rabbits could be negatively impacted by either eating the plant or being exposed to marijuana smoke. But according to A Guide to Plant Poisoning of Animals in North America, a number of animals have been negatively impacted by eating marijuana, including horses, dogs and pigs. And according to the Pet Poison Hotline, dogs and cats can be intoxicated both by exposure to smoke and by eating marijuana.

So it is most likely a good idea to keep marijuana away from rabbits as well!
