State health inspectors are investigating a Maine restaurant that tried to mellow out lobsters with marijuana before killing them to be served, cracked and eaten.

The Portland Press Herald reported that Charlotte’s Legendary Lobster Pound in Southwest Harbor remains open but has stopped allowing customers to request meat from lobsters sedated with marijuana.

Owner Charlotte Gill is a state-licensed medical marijuana caregiver. She said on Friday she hoped to resume sales of “smoked” lobster meat by mid-October, a move meant to lessen the suffering of her lobsters before they are dropped in boiling water.

It is unknown whether pot smoke calms lobsters or has any effect on their meat.
