Let me guess, it fell on him.

Brilliant.

Apparently he didn't have enough Zig Zags for all that weed.................
 
2013-10-02 04:00:01 PM
I doubt the weight is what killed him, most likely the momentum of said weight.

FTFA: After refusing to stop at a Federal Highway Patrol block, the driver lead cops on a three mile chase that ended with him losing control of the vehicle, slamming into a tree and being crushed by his own merchandise.

I'm thinking he had too many zig zags for his own good, actually...

If you're holding a half ton of weed for transport, it's well known that you use an ice cream truck for transport.

Anybody see the documentary "Addiction" produced by HBO?  Actually it was mostly decent, but there was one scene with an ER doc where some guy had just died from a motorbike crash.  He points to the blood test where he has high levels of THC, and says something like "this young man left the house today not thinking it was his last, but then he decided to smoke marijuana and that led to this".  I was like, way to blow your credibility, idiots.  Wow.  He died because somebody ran him down or he sucks at riding, and the blood then left his body rapidly, not because he hit a bong at some point.   I then tried to explain this to the addiction medicine doc who loaned me the DVD, but he wouldn't have any of it.  Nope, died due to MJ.  This is the thinking out there.

Even absent the cargo, speeding into a tree often results in the driver eating the steering wheel or getting ejected.
So I see no reason to accept-by-default "crushed by his cargo".

My uncle was killed by a hit of acid. Of course, the acid was in a shipping container at the time when it was dropped

(Rimshot)

Some more fatalities:

Swinging and Pot killed my Father. My Mother was swinging the pot.

Booze has been the death of men in my family every since they left Ireland. They just can't find nearly enough of it.

You have to be careful not to OD on sex. My brother died of that. It was really sad--he was about to get laid for the first time, too.

My uncle died of Dutch elm disease. Took out his car, too.


If there is a God, may he preserve us all from a comical death. Because when you die under risible circumstances, you'll never hear the end of it.

I didn't see the documentary, but it doesn't seem to be beyond comprehension that MJ may have affected a driver's reaction time in a way that led to a fatal accident.

Maybe the accident was unavoidable anyway, maybe not, but it certainly seems plausible that MJ could slow reaction time, and that reaction time is a crucial component of good driving.

I don't have the link, but someone posted a DOT study that compared the effects of alcohol and weed. Basically, they are completely different. Just because alcohol does x to your driving ability, does mean weed does.

Generally, the study found that people who were high  compensated for an effect on driving ability that the researchers could not find.In other words, people who were high drove fine, but thought they sucked and compensated for it. Alcohol makes people think they drive fine when they actually suck.

Impaired decision making, and slow response time are not the marks of good driving.

you can go full pothead about it and protest, like the facts and stuff...man, but it still affects your reaction time, which can sometimes be the critical difference between serious accident and driving off with your middle finger extended.

And don't get me wrong -- I voted in favor of California's Prop 19 and have nothing against MJ use (or alcohol use, for that matter) in the right setting.  ...but using MJ and driving seem like two activities that just shouldn't be combined.

But in this case, he was crushed by his cargo, which is funny whether its pot or bananas.

The point is the doc in the documentary had no way of knowing if the THC had anything to do with the fatal accident.  Based on the stats, riding a motorbike is the much higher risk factor than smoking MJ.  It was a really weak bit, that's all.  Alcohol is much more highly correlated with bad driving.

Anyway, why didn't the director film enough so that they could just get someone who ODed on heroin or something?  That's my point.
