  • No one has ever died from an overdose of marijuana and in most cases where there are car accidents alcohol is also involved (in MOST cases not all)

  • Yeah, it's called driving under the influence. They can also take other innocent lives while they are doing this.

  • No one has ever died from an "overdose", no. Can it impair you to the point of not being able to drive? Yes, absolutely, and accidents happen every day.
    Smoking marijuana alone will not deftly increase your chances of "head, neck, and lung cancer", it's the additives in tobacco that are more likely to cause the cancers, hence why they are called carcinogens.
    And...I find it really hard to believe that someone high on marijuana alone would kill someone.
    If you want the truth about marijuana, look it up. www.norml.org is a very good place to start.

  • no noone has ever died from smoking the stuff. as for the whole pizza delieverything that guy was either just wanting to kill the guy or his shit was laced. in all the times i got stoned before i had kids, no i dont do that anymore, i NEVER killed anyone or even wanted to. as a matter of fact if i smoked while i was roally pissed off at someone then i would chill out and not care anymore. it may cause problems when driving, although again no problem there, but causing violent actions it doesnt do that either unless laced.

  • Maybe not only but I'm sure people have smoked and done other drugs(some prescription) or used alcohol along with it and have killed themselves accidently.

  • It is well known to science that it's impossible to overdose on marijuana. And when people over does on any drug, they know what it is easily.

    Marijuana obviously impairs the mind. However...Marijuana has a measurable yet relatively mild effect on psychomotor skills, yet it does not appear to play a significant role in vehicle crashes, particularly when compared to alcohol. Marijuana has an extremely low relation to car crashes. Do some googling, all the info is out there.

    But, to answer your actual question No, no one has ever died from weed alone.....no one ever. I'm sure there have been accidents that happened while someone was stoned, but pot alone cannot kill you. You can't overdoes on it like you can alcohol, cocaine, heroin & meth (and a bunch of other ones). Again, you cannot OD on marijuana....anyone who can use google should be able to figure that out...

    i majored in pharmacology...i know my drug facts.

  • guys...marijuana has NO CONNECTION to lung cancer....or ANY cancer. In fact, many cancer patients use prescribed marijuana. The carcinogens in marijuana are lower than some of the foods you eat. Yes, it has a lot of tar in it, but it has less carcinogens than the fats found in your fast food items.

    people are so ignorant sometimes., before you come on here spouting off crap as if you've been schooled....do some research! Because you obviously have not been schooled on drug facts.

    FYI - marijuana paste is now being studied as a cure for skin cancer & seems to be working really well.. So eat that...
