I'm tired of teenagers these days.... , they have all these opportunities in world and all do is get together, sit around and try to catch a buzz . They could be out there helping their families, trying to be leaders in the community and trying to be better overall. But nope they would rather sit around and puff all day. I hope the some one does something. I'm say we throw the book at these hooligans and let them deal with the DEA (dolphin enforcement agency)
.

Hey guys I found an interesting article about a group of teen dolphins being observed for a documentary. The dolphins don't know they are being watched , so we catch them in their natural environment. One of the things that were observed was what researchers believe to be is drug use by the youths.
They pass along a deadly puffer fish between themselves chewing on it lightly to release little amounts of the neurotoxins . After they enter an almost trance like state and become fascinated by their surroundings particularly their reflections.

Here is the article www.sunnyskyz.com...

I believe dolphins to be our closest intellectual relatives on this planet. I know some will disagree and say this animal or that, it is just my opinion. I dont believe that I need to highlight all their attributes in this thread but I thought it would be nice to add one to their credit. These creatures like to experience reality in different states. Its actual more natural than you may know here is another article written about this animal behavior
www.takepart.com... .

Though some here might enjoy this tidbit of info that was put out today. I found it interesting.
Any thoughts ATS?
How about a few dolphins under the influence jokes?

I'll bite. So Flipper is flipped out, eh?
Must be the Cetacean generation, always getting in to trouble.
This is not novel behavior in animals - bears and other mammals will imbibe on overripe fruit and get "drunk" from it.
Too bad they won't be making a Family Guy episode using puffer fish instead of toads.

Eta - this would be the same fish used in Japanese cuisine known as "Fugu", would it not?

There is no connection to HR Puffenstuff is it?

I wonder if the dolphin's names are Eric, Kelso, Hyde and Fez.

I know that plenty of animals look for a "buzz", but what is so interesting to me on this one is that it is clearly a social activity as well. I wonder if this is confined to one group (culture) of dolphins, and if older animals do it as well but simply haven't been observed yet.

Really cool, and thanks for posting it.

When do you think the U.S gov't is going to start arresting those dolphins for using narcotics? I hear they put a new aquarium in guantanimo....

Well this is a recently observed phenomena so I would assume that many different dolphins from all swims of life do... On a more serious note I do find it extremely interesting that it is a social activity as well and I would assume that their "drug" culture would mirror ours. So its a learned behavior and it was probably an older dolphins showing a group of younger dolphins how to do this.

Similar to the older brother and his friends scenario in our culture were people are usually exposed via social interactions from groups on how to catch a "buzz".

Teenage kids will be swimming with the dolphins and asking them for some of that puff stuff they get high on. Pretty soon the Feds will be busting all sorts of dolphins for trading puff stuff for gold fish. I could just imagine the cost of running a dolphin prison.

Great. It starts with the puffer fish, but what next? I'm sure it is a "gateway" drug! Pretty soon they are going to be using the equivalent of ocean "meth".
Stop the madness!!!!!


Anyway, it is an interesting story, and it makes me wonder about the older dolphins, because you would think that they have to learn about this somewhere right? I guess unless one of them tried to eat the puffer, then noticed the side effect.

Thanks for sharing.

Don't forget about the reindeer who eat Aminata Muscaria, and the fact that one of the effects are the feeling of flying. Many believe this is part of the Santa, flying reindeer myth.link

Maybe that why they are always getting washed ashore...OD'd on Sea Skag.

Hmmm.... thats an interesting proposal actually.

So maybe before we release a dolphin thats been washed ashore we do a required drug testing. If they fail they have to go to mandatory rehab followed by six weeks of work release at sea world to cover the expenses.
Then we can use the rehabilitated dolphins to start a scare them straight program and become mentors for at risk youth.
Have them explain all the trials and tribulations of a life consumed by "puffer".




But seriously it is an interesting idea.

I made the mistake of opening another thread on this, my apologies for not searching more than in the new story bin, where I missed your thread [edit: just looked, I must have got fixated on the one above yours and didn't read the entire name of the thread. I linked that thread here, and promise to bump yours several times once it deflates, as all threads do as the nature of the beast.

What I said there is when I told a friend about this he asked "What do they do, float around and listen to whale's sing?"

No problem man, its all good. Its a very serious topic ( as your thread states ) and needs to be discussed.


Well lets see they probably listen to whales sing, discuss life and munch on some fish... Menaces to society, the whole lot of them.

Don't forget the rape caves.

All doped up, cruising for victims.

I wonder if there isn't some type of seaweed that is the gateway drug.

[EDIT
]Well thats very courteous of you, but Im not too concerned about a deflated thread. And yours is in breaking news so no conflict as far as I'm concerned. As you said tis the nature of the beast. Especially since I didn't use hype/trigger words like Phil robertson, Ison , Obamacare , NSA , China , Evolution , Fukushima .

Although that would get me alot of stars and flags hmmmm.... Off i go to write a new thread
