    call bullshit right off...
    half a joint a day killed her...LOL...they would have bodies piled neck deep on LA California street corners right now if that light usage could kill anyone...
    the author, should be considered a professional his drivel here...a fucking nut case that twist what really happens is not a credible source...
  3. I don't think that they actually had much else to go on. It does say "other prescription drugs" but doesn't list what these were... Hmmm...
  4. wellllll this is some buuuuulllshiiit.
    Either its media bullshit, it was laced, or it was a coincidence she happened to be smoking ganj at the time in my opinion.
  6. These are annoying because I know some dumb bitch out there believes it.
  7. It is possible, although very rare overdoses can occur with marijuana the same as they can with any intoxicating substance.
    The difference is 1<8,748, and that's just alcohol (Figures adjusted for the U.K. dated 2011). :cool:
  8. They are trying their hardest to make marijuana the bad guy, people are waking up & gov't is losing its grip Who Dat!
  9. "Other prescription drugs" that could be anything! Take the wrong combo and one little chink in the chain and you're dead. Like Heath ledger :( Sent from my iPhone using Grasscity Forum

    What does her majesty's kingdom say about some kid with NO drugs in their system falling over from a freak heart attack while playing a sport, for example?
    We are not machines. We are human. Sometimes unfortunate things happen. There is no guarantee to life.
    It's SO obvious the medical push is coming out of the UK (Sativex, anyone?)
  14. the term cannabis toxicity bothers me. there is no evidence that supports cannabis is toxic, id love to see studies showing otherwise. she suffered a heart attack, the fact that she was smoking a joint at the time is just an unfortunate coincidence.

    Let me clear this up, everything you consume into your body has a "LDL" level assigned to it. LDL stands for Lethal Dose Low. It the the MINIMUM amount that could be fatal. Now, toxicity level is different. "Toxicity" is damage to body cells (NOT death). If you drink too much alcohol and feel nauseous, you're past the lowest toxicity of ethanol (alcohol). Even water has a toxicity. Why? Because you can overdose on it (and people have and died). It's a classification in the medical world to show true or hypothetical levels of danger. You have to pass through Lowest-Low Toxicity, Mild-Medium Toxicity, Severe Toxicity before reaching LDL (the lowest dose that can KILL you).
    So, theoretically (pretend), you can overdose on THC.
    In REALITY, to reach the LDL of THC, you would have to smoke 15,000 pounds of fifteen minutes.
    Even if you could, what happens when you have more than enough weed? You FALL ASLEEP.
    In ten thousand years of recorded use, there has never been a death caused by cannabis.
  16. In my 1000's of case studies I have never reached the LD50 :cry:

  17. Classic government propaganda...

    This is going to stunt legalisation in fuckin Stone Age dumb fuck Britain
    I dont know if you read the story or not but this isn't true
