Weed: All We’re Saying Is It Won’t Kill You
Can you die from weed? You know, just smoke too much of it and die?
According to research cited by Promises which has a network of mental health and addiction treatment centers, the likelihood of dying from marijuana alone is extremely remote, although marijuana use can lead to death because of the activities people engage in when high.
Weed Death Research
They go on to cite:
A study conducted in California involving 65,177 men and women aged 15-49 found after 10 years, marijuana users died no sooner than those who did not smoke it.
Another study looked at 45,450 Swedish army conscripts aged 18-20 and found after 15 years, both users and nonusers had a similar life expectancy.
According to a 1988 ruling from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, a marijuana smoker would have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times the amount of THC in a joint in order to risk dying.
A 2009 study in American Scientist on the relative toxicity of recreational drugs indicated one would have to use more than 1,000 times the effective dose of marijuana in order for it to be potentially fatal – not even a certain death.
On The Other Hand, With Fake Weed
It can get dicey. 2 dead and 54 bleeding? Nope. Weed doesn’t do any of that to the best of my knowledge. So you’re much better off sticking with the real McCoy.
If you celebrate, celebrate responsibly. If you’re thinking about it, just know that it’s not going to kill you. Might I suggest listening to:
