AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Amsterdam’s famed coffee shops are turning to free-range eggs for their hashish “spacecakes” to reduce the suffering of chickens.
“Coffee shop owners were completely unaware and shocked that their spacecakes are not animal friendly,” said a spokeswoman for Dutch animal rights group Wakker Dier, campaigning against the use of eggs from chickens kept caged on battery farms.
Four large shops have switched to free-range eggs and 20 more plan to follow, she said. The shops get through hundreds of eggs a week for their spacecakes, which are baked with marijuana or hashish and can give an intense high.
