Here Are All The People Who Have Died From A Marijuana Overdose

Just how deadly a killer is marijuana? Here's a GIF showing all of the people who have died after overdosing on pot:



Yeah, not a single person has ever died from a weed overdose. We don't have numbers on pandas, but we're guessing it's about the same. According to one frequently cited study, a marijuana smoker would have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times the amount of THC in a joint in order to be at risk of dying.

Last week, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the federal government wouldn't intervene as Colorado and Washington state implement plans for a system of legalized marijuana for adults. The decision opened the floodgates for other states to pursue similar legalization efforts and outraged police groups apparently not excited to see a shift away from the failed war on drugs.

In a joint letter written to Holder on Friday, law enforcement organizations warned that his move would lead to more crime, violence and even death.

While high driving may be a concern, Colorado, Washington and federal authorities have all taken steps to keep people off the road after using marijuana. The two states both have their own restrictions, and Holder said in his statement that the DOJ would still prosecute individuals or entities to prevent "drugged driving."

The police groups also make a number of additional controversial claims that marijuana use itself leads to violent behavior, suicidal thoughts and interest in harder drugs. Scientific studies have not been able to prove this causation conclusively, however, and research has also suggested that THC has significant therapeutic value to patients suffering from cancer, AIDS or glaucoma.

None of this is to say that the nation doesn't struggle with broader issues of drug and alcohol abuse and overdose. Drug policy reformers and activists gathered around the world over the weekend to discuss the overdose epidemic. In 2010, overdoses were responsible for 38,329 deaths. Sixty percent of those were related to prescription drugs. In the same year, a total of 25,692 persons died of alcohol-induced causes, including accidental poisoning and disease from dependent use.


Hur hur hur, 'joint letter', hur hur hur

PANDAS.

I look forward to when I can grow a pot of pot. Except I hear the plants are really finicky.

I'm also happy that my workplace had to revise their drug policy to refer to 'legal drugs.' Which is funny, because I'm pretty sure that also technically refers to caffeine - which could make the coffee maker a legal drug dispenser. Not to mention all the drug-laced chocolates that floats around freely.

.341?

Still conscious?

.35 is considered "Equivalent to general anesthesia, breathing may stop."

Alcoholics can generally blow much higher than normal and remain functioning.

Depends on the alcoholic.

I've seen some pass out after a single beer.

I uh.. have it on good authority... that depending on the breed they aren't much harder to grow than tomatoes. And they take similar care. Similar types of fertalizer, amounts of water, and light ect. ... allegedly. >.>

Years ago, back around '99/'00, there's was talk of passing legislation that would effectively outlaw printed works such as High Times. In mocking response, High Times said they would change their name to "Tomato Times" for pretty much the above stated reason.

Reactivate the 18th amendment and the elite will be more than happy to provide you with enough * Marijuana * to destroy the entire planet. Would you like to know more?

[Edit: I've been informed by my superiors that hemp is not Marijuana and that I am a complete retard for stating otherwise. Regardless of the fact, my statement still stands]

Yeah, let's forget the facts that hemp, due to it's growth rate, is better than wood for paper, cotton for clothing, and corn for ethanol.

I mean, who the hell would grow hemp . . .

America takes good care of their own.The US Government had James Clapper tell the truth on camera to the best of his knowledge to reveal public assistance programs everyone already knew about. Ignores every phone call that routes through the Tor networks thousands of times a day because America respects your privacy.

Legally purchases your public data from every major web company and nation (Facebook, Google, Apple, Microsoft, et al) and pays them millions for it. They put CAPTCHAS into critical software security networks. NSA employees use these powers to broadcast our favorite celebrities on TV. They have never performed economic espionage.

Collects flowers with our favorite US Supreme Court Justices and elected officials by an honor system at the highest basketball court in the land. Let's serve the best software money can provide to customers who need the best of the best for a unbelievably low price! I love America.
