Woman Rushes Pet Raccoon To Fire Dept. For Too Much Weed

This is great in a very weird, disturbing way. So a woman took her "pet" raccoon to the Wayne township fire dept. because it had been exposed to marijuana. Mind you, this also took place at 2 a.m. so you know she had probably been exposed to some things as well. Obviously there was nothing the firefighters could do but wait out the weed. My question is, why do we have raccoons as pets? Was Petco like "Do you want a cat but dirtier?" This is a wild story that I'm getting a good laugh at. Hope you are too.
