No I'm not kidding .
Anyone who results in vomiting after smoking too much weed too quickly should NOT BE smoking .
It's people like this who give weed a bad name.
Cannabis is therapeutic and should not be disrespected by its users.
Anyone looking to "get really baked" or whatever , you might as well go sniff glue something.
And FYI I'm not a "kid" or "being a dick" . I'm speaking my mind and saying what I think is the right thing to say, like yourself.
Now my advice is either , start respecting marijuana like everyone else here or maybe just leave it be.
I "respect" (by your terms) cannabis, use it medicinally and recreationally, and thrown up from not smoking. So I shouldn't use it because of YOUR rules? GTFO with that elitist attitude.
I smoke to get high, I smoke to help with various medical reasons. Sometimes, you overdo things, and your body reacts. How will it react? Will, seeing as how widely different every single human who's ever lived is, it could react in countless amounts of ways.
There's nothing to respect. You're being ridiculous. People use it for various reasons, and sometimes your body reacts in unexpected ways. Even using it recreationally is MEDICAL. Ask Granny:
Many people have diabetes and don't know it. Yet, if they are toking recreationally they still are getting the medical benefits of cannabis use.

Shoud all those unaware, pot-head diabetics quit toking until the damage is done and then go in and get a prescription? Or should they keep toking for the "high", but still save themselves from going blind, losing a leg, or having a heart attack?
And that is just one way cannabis is a PREVENTATIVE MEDICINE! Shall I go into how it may slow MS? Or how it may prevent, or even reverse, Alzheimer's and cancer? Does your wife know that cannabinoids can slow the growth and spread of breast cancer?
Keep it illegal except by prescription? That is criminal just for what it can do for diabetics! If cannabis had killed even one person by overdose, I could see restrictions, but in over 4,000 years of written medical history, there has yet to be a single cannabis overdose fatality! (Common aspirin kills over 500 Americans a year)
The only way we will get cannabis accepted by the general public is to educate them! Once they know what cannabis can do, we will either have legal cannabis, or a revolution! Clicking that first link in my sig is a good place to start educating yourself so you can educate others!
