  • I know someone who was hit by a driver under the influence of MJ. He is permantly disabled. And smpkling anything increases the likelihodd of head, neck, and lung cancers. But your death certificate will say "lung cancer" and not "MJ".

    It is not healthy for you. But, neither are cigs or etoh.

  • Zoe, when someone dies of an over dose of any kind it is investigated and an autopsy is done to verify the drugs that killed them.

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

  • Sebbie, i just googled "marijuana related deaths" and what i found was the opposite. All i could find was info on how low the numbers are. In fact, there are more deaths related to aspirin a year than marijuana. Obviously, you didn't google that...

    Also, you are very misinformed about the drug trade. Most marijuana is grown right here in the good ole US of A. People don't want Mexican weed anymore because it has a very low amount of THC when compared to marijuana grown in the US. Hippies grow it & sell it to their friends because it's a weed that grows in any type of soil very easily...growing pot is easier than growing tomatoes.

  • I know of someone who killed because they were high off of weed !

    One of my friend's step brother killed a pizza guy (he and a couple of his friends) .. they were high and of course that was also their 'excuse" ...

    they only got 6 years for it too ...

  • 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)

  • 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.
