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.
