Even if MJ is safe for dragons to eat (and we only have anecdotal evidence from other threats & posters), we don't know if it's any good for them nutritionally. Sure, we can feed dragons all kinds of things that don't outwardly seem to harm them, but 1) we don't know if it's good for them in the same sense that iceberg lettuce isn't good for them as a staple. 2) it could have some sub-clinical effect on them that they can hide. We all know how good they are at hiding when they're not well.
My 2 cents is why chance it when we know that there are so many commonly available foods they can eat? It seems irresponsible in the same way as the knuckleheads here in Colorado who drive high (or drunk for that matter). I don't care if someone gets stoned out of their mind every night at home as long as they're not harming others. The line for me is when they drag others into it (other drivers, children, pets, etc.). I'm not saying that's what the OP is suggesting doing, but to anyone who is thinking about it, I'd say if you really care about your beardie, you should think twice before doing anything that could harm them. That including feeding them foods containing known psychoactive chemical compounds.
I agree with pretty much your whole sentiments.
But I do think we should also be open minded to the topic, so that discussions and learning can occur. If we just bash every single person who potentially has experiences they can share with us, we get no where and we learn nothing.
I dont think it will ever be considered a real healthy leaf, but I appreciate hearing peoples experiences so that as a community we can grow in knowledge. we wont get that if everyone is too afraid to post what they think or done because a few are very loud on the subject
