I purchased some Milkweed butterfly this summer and the first one to metamorph must've been in there a couple days, I was slow to notice.

It appeared to have ripped open one of the others as there was a bloody mess and a corpse when I finally noticed..

Cannabis, yes. Milkweed makes you fly across North America (generations of y'all) and wound your own larvae for more of that goodness. That thing makes crack look like a Tootsie roll.

But then they jizz the juice they drank from their murdered babies into momma butterflies to make more caterpillars?

Disney never mentioned that in the circle of life song.

A stripping puppet on a liquid stick gets into it pretty thick. A butterfly drinks a turtle's tears, but how do you know he really needs it? 'Cos a butterfly feeds on a dead monkey's hand.
