Wtf? I googled this, and the National Institute of Health even has it listed.

Never ever heard of it before.

Me neither. Though it hardly appears "new"

CHS, which stands for cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, was first reported in medical literature in 10 patients in Adelaide, Australia in 2004.

Weed's not for everybody, I guess.

Actually, we're probably looking at something that has a hormesis effect when consumed irregularly to produce the anti-nausea effect. But when you cross a threshold you get into the realm where the chemical is a natural pesticide.

After a series of investigations, they found the symptoms ceased when the patient stopped smoking the drug.

This, 12 sentences in, is the reason why this paper is known as "The Daily Fail."

Daily Fail commenters almost make FoxNooz fans seem sane. Although, when you think about it, it's easy to imagine that a good number of the really terrible Daily Fail commenters, who claim to be American, are also FoxNooz fans.

The Daily Mail does good work.  They get to the bottom of stories and don't sensationalize them.

Anyway, glad the truth about marijuana is finally being revealed to the public.  Most dangerous drug out there, in my opinion.

they do get desperate inventing new syndromes and conditions.  all to stop this newfangled (old as the history of the world) "drug".
makes one wonder if it was a real thing, then how did the term "dirty hippy" ever take hold... I mean if they were all having to take hot baths all the time wouldn't they instead be called "excessively clean hippies"?

I really don't think it's made-up; in fact my brother has frequently had fits of exactly the symptoms described, right down to the 3-to-5-times-a-day hot showers.

For the record I don't give a shiat about weed and think it should be legal, but frankly I think it's bizarre how quickly some people dismiss ANY negative side-effect of pot as a hoax or a fairy tale fabricated by behind-the-scenes boogeymen without giving it even the slightest consideration.  The vehement denials are reaching Iraqi Information Minister-levels of ridiculousness.

I think it may be related to the fact that NOBODY (except you) has ever seen this shiat... that's like what .001% of Fark?
I think Fark is a great microcosm representing average America (depressing huh?), so that would be like .001% of Americans suffering from this "sydrome".  I think it's more likely that it is something sprayed on the govt. confiscated weed, and let back out onto the street to make people think the pot is bad.  The govt. has been known to do some very nasty things to it's citizens all in the name of science or drug war.

I've been around serious pot heads my entire adult life, and I've never met any one who had this alleged syndrome.   As a matter of fact, I've known quite a few pot users who smoke because it STOPS nausea and vomiting, which is why so many cancer patients swear by it and why at least one of my loony pot head friends who has anorexia uses it.  The only thing that has ever helped the anorexic friend, despite years of psychological treatment, gain enough weight to be anywhere close to "normal" smoking is pot.

That has kind of confounded me some times, too.  People like their little marijuana hobby, and for various reasons, often don't want to hear any criticism of the drug, or their use of it.  I can see where it comes from, but it isn't the most rational behavior, and there is rarely anything gained by arguing the point.  It's not a perfect drug.

But it is pretty cool.

Actually, the term "native", if you really want to be a pedantic pinhead, simply means "a person born in a specified place" and has f*ckall to do with ancestry. Were you born in America? Then, technically, you are a Native American, regardless of the color of your skin or where your ancestors came from.

"Native American" is just as misleading and incorrect as "Indian". Just like, technically, Charlize Theron is more of an African-American than 99% of the people claiming that distinction.

These labels are a bunch of nonsense conjured up by PC wags with little common sense and almost no comprehension of the English language.

This was actually something that was brought to my attention a few years ago, not by this article.  There is peer-reviewed literature investigating these symptoms as far back as 2004, including mention of compulsive bathing for symptom relief.  Here's a more recent journal article.  Oh look, here's another.  And just in case you were going to attribute the complete fabrication of those articles on the DEA or something (or poisoned weed, apparently?), here's one from a Canadian medical journal.

The myth that is repeated most often is that no one has ever died from smoking pot.  Granted, it is quite rare, but it does happen.  I don't mean the stories that have come up lately about someone taking edibles, freakin' out, and killing themselves, though I think it might be fair to include those numbers.  What I'm talking about are heart attacks directly due to the increase in blood pressure, and aneurysms due to the same.  It is very rare, but it has happened.  Though if I were to mention it in some half-baked argument/discussion, I'd be asked for links, and discredited when I can't provide them, as if that's what I keep hanging around in my favorites list.  Then, it as if the notion of serious health problems stemming from high blood pressure isn't valid.  I'm not presenting myself very well here, please forgive, I'm quite late for bed.

ding ding...   precisely.  We are talking on Fark after all.  I still think it amounts to probably .001% of the weed smokers (I am no longer one - not for 30yrs or so).   Just because there is a Canadian journal article on it doesn't mean that it's not possible something has been altered on the plant.  You do know the US and Canadian governments cooperate right?  While it is not AS illegal in Canada, they have been pushing for years to make it more illegal there just like US policy.  Anything that the govt. can do to demonize any substance they don't like, they will do.  It's not a conspiracy when it's a well established fact that the govt. is paranoid to the point of doing detrimental things to it's citizens either in the name of "science" or "for the children"... nevermind that sometimes it's the children they hurt the most.  Let me be clear... I am not saying that is what is going on here, I am just saying that it is equally plausible that it is propaganda or FUD.  With all the propaganda (noise) put out about the "demon weed" over the years of this drug war, how do you know?  If you remember, back when the war was getting into full swing (1970's ish maybe) there were well-respected publications putting out propaganda articles about it that have since proven COMPLETELY false.

Up in Canada, a common, and officially recognized term, is "First Nations."  "Indian" is often acceptable, in the same sense that is often OK to use the term "black."  Knowing your audience is important, though, and it never hurts to ask about the preferred term, a move that's easy to accomplish online, but is more clunky in real life.

My experience has been that Indian is OK, but I'd rather know for certain, considering the unfortunate burden of political correctness, and the touchy matters of a sensitive and prickly history of mistreatment of Native Americans/First Nations/Indians.

Caffeine poisoning is now listed in the

DSM-5 and incidences of nicotine poisoning, which is fatal, is increasing due to the proliferation of E-cigs, specifically the refillable kind.

Apples to oranges comparison, granted, since caffeine and nicotibe are literally poisons anyone of age can legally purchase OTC and poison him or herself and marijuana is not.

Oh, and babysitting a drunk arsehole, friend or not, is way more annoying than dealing with someone super high on couch lock.
