Dolphins — they're just like us! It turns out they too like to have fun by mildly poisoning themselves.Some Australian dolphins carefully chew on pufferfish skin, and small doses of neurotoxin have a mild narcotic effect on them, according to The Independent. "After chewing the puffer gently and passing it round, they began acting most peculiarly, hanging around with their noses at the surface as if fascinated by their own reflection," Rob Pilley, a zoologist on the BBC documentary miniseries "Dolphins: Spy in the Pod" said of the dolphins in an interview with the Sunday Times.
I wonder if recreational drug use has a correlation, or more prevalence, with higher intelligent species.
Yes, seems likely. It's actually a scientifically proven fact that drinking is correlated with intelligence:
I didn't say heavy drinking is good for you or improve intelligence, only that there's a clear and strong correlation between intelligence and the probability of heavy drinking.
Go to your friendly local emergency room or police intake desk for a month and see how intelligent the users are. All you will see is dysfunction, disease, tragedy and death.

Just saying, don't throw beer enthusiasts under the bus with alcoholics.
