Sounds like the study basically concludes "We ruled out other stuff, so it must have been the pot!"

Also, they should ban exercise.  Have you heard how many people with pre-existing heart conditions die during exercise?  And sex!  Ban the sex!

Actually, it's still zero. There is no established link here.
I had to reread it until I cleared something up for myself. What we are reading here are NOT the coroner's reports. They are independent "research" papers by independent "researchers" whose provenance and employers we do not know.
They cherry picked the actual coroner's reports, which we don't get to see. The issue of medical history is carefully skirted.
 If you even give this two second's consideration, you just got your face jacked off in.
This isn't science - it's dildos.

It sounds like these two degenerates injected one too many marihuanas. I am sure that their mothers are so proud of their little snowflakes ending up in the news as just another casualty of rampant liberalism.

I did some research, and every single person who smoked pot between in the 1850's has died.  Every damn one of them.  And it gets worse.  Due to the risks of second-hand-high, everyone that ever even *met* a stoner has also died!

LazyMedia: Checkmate, potheads!

Check YOU. I'm not even playing mate. I'm playing pot.

khyberkitsune: Any honest smoker can confirm these effects. My first few times of smoking pot and disrupting my endocannabinoid system, I first A. didn't get high then B. got high as hell and had my heart racing then C. heart raced and I puked then D. All was good.
Those effects don't happen any longer, but I see it happen all the time in first/second timers.


Maybe pot is too strong for novices now. I've been smoking pot since I was a teen, and the old stuff didn't do that to anyone. In fact, I didn't even feel it for the first several times I tried it. It was like it had to build up in my system first (like we know that it does in regular smokers) before I got the effects. You guys settle down, stop taking room-choking bong hits your first time out. It really isn't necessary. Even now if I'm smoking "a lot" for me, I have one hit and that shiat just about takes the top of my head off. Then maybe one more small hit a few minutes later.

I'm serious. The medical stuff is not the same drug that we used to roll up into joints. Calm the fark down, stoners, and quit ODing to show how hardcore you are. It's not cool to drink alcohol fast until you puke either, but guess what underage drinkers do, all the goddamned time?

tbeatty: pute kisses like a man: wait, what?

they don't even know if they had any in their system?  this is just a guess because some was nearby?

Another perfect example of "Correlation is not causation."

It's quite clear that while death and marijuana use were correlated but in no way did marijuana cause death.

In fact, the real underlying causative event is Darwinism "weeding out" the stupid people which is quite strongly correlated to "dead by 30" and "marijuana user."

P.S. Does anyone know a meth or heroin addict that turns down weed?  Didn't think so.


I've known several meth users who wouldn't smoke weed. If your preferred way of being high is to run in circles, and grind your teeth, and take your toaster apart looking for CiA mind control transmitters, well, marijuana just ain't cutting it, is it?

In the second case described in the report, a 28-year-old man was found dead at home by his girlfriend. An ashtray, rolling paper and a sealable plastic bag containing remnants of marijuana were found next to the body. The man had occasionally used cannabis, the researchers wrote. He had also abused alcohol and drugs, such as amphetamines and cocaine until about two years before his death, they wrote.

"Vas is das?"

"A supposedly former heavy tweaker alcoholic coke head who died of a heart attack.  We found the murder weapon. This bag of shake.  His girlfriend found the body. She's beside herself.  Totally hysterical.  You might want to blood test her for cereal and cartoons.  There was a plate with trace amounts of queso dip in the sink.  She might fall victim to marijuana at any minute."

In one of the deaths, a 23-year-old man without a history of health problems suddenly collapsed while using public transportation, and died after 40 minutes of unsuccessful resuscitation efforts, according to the case report based on postmortem investigations.

"I think this guy's dead."

"Keep trying. Pizza won't be here for at least 40 minutes.  Detective Schmidt found weed in his pockets, maybe even enough for a bowl."


Detective Schmidt (from other room):  "Hey, get a load of this guy's medical records!  How was this guy even alive!?  Hereditary heart problems, diabetes, kidney disease, hepatitis, arthritis, asthma...This is what happens when you keep trace amounts of marijuana in your pockets!"

Legal pot will eventually have a dosage amount, similar to proof or percent for booze. Betty Crocker Brownie Mix lobbyists don't want people overdosing and disparaging their good name.

I thought I was going to die from the marijuanas once because my throat closed up from a bong hit and I couldn't breathe.  But then my airway opened up and I was sooooooo high and my brain shifted from "OH GOD I'M GOING TO DIE" to "I want pancakes" and then I won the lottery and saved the president and had sex with three chicks at once so everything worked out.
