    I heard that you can't die from weed from, but I am still unsure. Please give me a straight answer, and some links as proof would be nice. Thanx in advance!

    no one has ever died or overdosed on marijuana before. you would pass out before being able to even come close to smoking enough to OD.

    7. Drugs used in medicine are routinely given what is called an LD-50. The LD-50 rating indicates at what dosage fifty percent of test animals receiving a drug will die as a result of drug induced toxicity. A number of researchers have attempted to determine marijuana's LD-50 rating in test animals, without success. Simply stated, researchers have been unable to give animals enough marijuana to induce death.

    8. At present it is estimated that marijuana's LD-50 is around

    1:20,000 or 1:40,000. In layman terms this means that in order to induce death a marijuana smoker would have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times as much marijuana as is contained in onemarijuana cigarette. NIDA-supplied marijuana cigarettes weigh approximately .9 grams. A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response.

    9. In practical terms, marijuana cannot induce a lethal response as a result of drug-related toxicity.

    heres the source.

    Also please take the time to review the Canaidan Senate Commitee study.

    Special Committee on Illegal drugs

    This study represents the most up to date and well financed study of cannabis and cannabis policy to date.

    the only plausible ways...

    On a serious note, I believe it is possible to die from maryjane, Under certain cirumstances. 1st, I would bet money that if some one inclosed them selves in a small place such as an air tight 4X4 square box, hotmboxed teh room and stayed for as long as possible, may die of afixiation.

    It is also possible to use weed to stuff a persons mouth and nose and seal it with tape, Another form of afixiation.

    If you were to use the stem of mary jane and JAB it into the throat and destroy the air tube, that may also cause death.

    chopping up the mary jane into fine particles and dilute it with water, and put into a syringe, and then injecting may cause clots in the blood vessels, which may lead to death.

    Eating or smokeing Laced weed could leed to coma and death.

    im sure there r other ways maryjane can cause death... BUT ive never heard of it causing death by just injestion or smokeing.

    Re: the only plausible ways...

    yea but those are caused by stupid users not the drug, any idiot whod lock himself in a room to choke himself to death shouldnt be smoking in the first place, and the cause of death would be aspyxiation, oxygen deprivation, not marijuana

    Well its obvious, if you smoke your at an increased risk of lung cancer, thats a given regardless if you smoke MJ or anything else. But compared to tobacco its far less harmful.

    But MJ its self can kill you... if you smoke several hundread pounds within the course of an hour I beleave :rolleyes: Yea, so basicly in real turns it cant, MJ its self is less harmful than alot of stuff.

    Of course, go driving or get yourself in a situation where you can get a lack of air... you might die

    Re: Re: Re: the only plausible ways...

    Many of us on here joke around. It is important to take issues that regard death seriously. While most of us on the board recognize it as a joke. There is a minority that will in fact believe it. I think I can speak for most of us when I say, thats some thing we want to avoid.

    I OD on MJ once,

    me & 2 other friends smoked something like an ounce all in one night and i started freaking out cuz i couldnt handle the extreme high i was getting. it was very very unpleasant and painful, high was getting higher and higher and i felt like passing out but it was to painful to pass out (it felt like i was wrapped around with tight rope like a mummy and getting squeezed tighter and tighter)..i rolled around the floor like my body was on fire until next morning, and finally i was able to passout. that was about 8yrs ago, and i still remember every moment of that night was an experience i do not wanna repeat. from that night on i do not smoke weed with body stone effect, i hate the feeling of couchlock

    Re: I OD on MJ once,

    I dunno whether to laugh or gape. I've smoked much more than that in a sitting, and as close to death as I've come was hugging the toilet.

    Let's give it the combo, though.

    It's also possible that while smoking on a filtered joint, you may suck out the filter and suffocate.

    P.S. Why do you dislike British people, or is it just a meaningless name???

    To tell you the truth, when I used to watch Tech TV, my impression of the Brits is that they were full of sh*t.

    Anyways, I was leaning more along the lines of cancer....

    Can MJ cause cancer, or will it increase the chances and will only be possible if you do something else too?
