this doesn’t surprise me – from what I have read about animal behaviour rats tend to be more cooperative socially (for instance both parents raise the young, unlike the mouse or squirrel) and they are less impulsive than many humans.
I’ve never heard of a rat smashing up its own habitat (apart from gnawing it a bit) or using tools to kill another rat (although apparently both mice and rats use stones and other items as markers and navigational aids!)
so it doesn’t suprise me that rats are more likely to experience the positive aspects of marijuana use. Incidentally vets have warned owners who take cannabis to hide their stash from pet rats – or they will steal it!
