Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

MORNING Midwest Digest, Nov. 15, 2018

Max Armstrong talks about car travel and gas prices, farm meeting season and intoxicated and high animals.

More people may be tempted to travel by car, simply because gas is cheaper this holiday season. There are stations in Missouri and Ohio where gas is under $2 a gallon.

Farm meeting season is just around the corner. 

We're having more reports of intoxicated animals. A couple months ago in Minnesota, an early frost caused berries to ferment, and birds ate the fermented berries. Now some raccoons have eaten fermented crab apples in West Virginia. 

Veterinarians are also seeing more animals getting high from eating marijuana edibles in states where marijuana is legal.
