I think you mean "deci-Becky" Subby. A "deca-Becky" would be 10 Beckys.  That's a lot of Beckys.

This doesn't help me.

What's the MG level in a single joint? Or a bong hit?

"Fearful Hallucinations" is a farking great name for a band.

Meanwhile, drinking a quart of Jack and killing yourself in one sitting still a-okay.

Maybe next time, instead of a lolly, just have a sandwich.

oh geez, just having a shot of Jack's is evil enough....can't imagine a whole quart.

Yep. Morons getting their dogs high and people leaving their edibles around for the kids to eat are going to ruin a perfectly good medication method for people who need it but don't/can't smoke it. 

/Which is why we are stocking the hell up as much as possible on shelf-stable candies.

If you are medicated for a heart condition, talk to your doctor before eating anything other than vegetables.

From the article:  "He suffered a heart attack after he ate around 70mg of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. To put the dose into perspective, the average joint contains around 7mg. "

If one Becky = the amount of THC in one average joint, then 70 mg = 1 deca-Becky

Well that settles it.  Make this poison illegal again.  Get me a beer!

TFA provides no evidence the guy had a heart attack. Sounds more like a panic attack considering how quickly he was discharged from the ER.

I'd ask how you can live to 70 and still be so dumb but the world seems to be overrun by stupid septuagenarians.

70mg is a lot, especially for an elderly man. Assuming that this old man hasn't been high in decades, his dose should have been around 2mg.

Well, he was a rookie, obviously.

Now then, someone gave him the lolly, he was not told about, well, any-fuking-thing.

Horrible journalism, FUK YOU Newsweek, you are part of the problem!!!
 
2019-02-11 12:02:14 PM  
Let me get this straight, the person this happened to is the dum-dum? For consuming one lollipop? Why in fﻥck's name is one lollipop so powerful?

When I eat lollipops I sometimes eat a whole bunch. Like 3 or 4 minimum. One time I ate an entire box of ice cream bars. Why make one thing as powerful as 10 whole joints. Seriously.
 
2019-02-11 12:02:14 PM  
Because nothings better than mixing medications with psychotropics.

Can't be right.
One edible dose is 10mg. Pretty sure that an entire joint at 12-18% thc is NOT the recommended first timer dosage or less than the equivalent of a regulated edible.
Wary of the Beckygrams scale.
 
2019-02-11 12:03:06 PM  
so weed is now a psychedelic?

I've been pretty high before, but it's never made me see things that weren't there apart from forgetting that I ate that sandwich like an hour ago.

Okay, we need more education for people so they have an understanding of how to approach partaking THC. But the ooga booga angle is just too much. This concern for the well being of one person is disingenuous

About 12 people died from alcohol while I read the article and posted this.

http://time.com/96082/alcohol-consump​t​ion-who/

If we can be free to die from alcohol we can be free to have scary hallucinations that go away after a period of time

So, once you come down from your "heart attack," the hospital sends you home to chill out?

I recently learned 70mg THC is enough to give me a light buzz.

Ah, I missed that part.  So Subby is right.  That's a deca-Becky, or roughly 400 milli-Taylors.

It's just another ancient meme that Fark runs into the ground and can't let go of.

Excepppppt.... ingestion != inhalation.

Or so I am told.  Hypothetically.

That said, there is a fundamental issue brought up by the original question:  There's not a lot of information on dose comparisons by method / potency / amount / etc (and, by extension cost comparisons) out there, if you're trying to figure it all out.  Or so my friends tell me.

Every day, more than 130 people in the United States die after overdosing on opioids.  Also, a 70 year old man suffering coronary disease had a heart attack after taking 10X as much THC as he should have.

Which one of these results in the most outrage?  Difficulty: America.

Edibles are for cutting up, you think you are supposed to eat the whole 8" 300mg fuking cookie, or the half pound brownie?

Then there is tolerance, I'm doing about 25mg every 4 hours or so for pain, which is a little light. They started me out at 5mg.  I quickly raised that to 15mg, 4 hours later and 25mg the next day.  That has worked for about 3 months.

If I was going out to the store(s) on shopping day, I'd do a lolly.
