Judging by my brother's experience, when od'ing on pot brownies you wake your mom up at midnight and ask to crawl in bed with her and sleep all weekend. Then the story is told at every family gathering until the end of time.

I actually have a friend who had to go to the ER a couple months back because he took too much delta-8 thinking it wouldn't fuck him up as much as weed would. He lives in a state where he can't get a card unless it's a critical medical condition, so he got this vape from a regular vape shop that he frequents.

Truth be told, that's probably the closest thing to an OD on pot that I can think of.

Not really. They give 2 paragraphs emphasizing the danger. Then without any rhetorical device connecting it like a transitional expression, they present a new paragraph with a citation from the CDC decreasing the strength slightly while still emphasizing danger then at the end of that paragraph say the DEA says you aren't going to die from it. It absolutely isn't in the next sentence it is in a different paragraph from his statement.

Small children may have receptors in parts of their brain where THC could act as a depressant for things like heart rate and breathing. More study is necessary. Keep it away from your kids, which you should be doing anyways.

Every study I've seen regarding THC concentrations has suggested that as they get higher, people just smoke LESS and achieve the same level of intoxication as before.


CetiCeltic t1_j77lycx wrote

Not to mention THC percentage doesn't always mean a better high. Terpenes are huge in determining the type of high and how high you get. So you can have a low THC with a high terpene profile and get fucked off your ass.


Longwell2020 t1_j76ww33 wrote

Granted, falling off a bridge while stoned is not studied by the cdc (I assume). He is absolutely incorrect to say it is a health risk from a medical standpoint as he is not qualified. I do see his point if he is talking in a more abstract way. I don't think that argument holds a lot of water compared to the much more significant risk of alcohol poisoning.


ate2ate t1_j77i4db wrote

Overdose deaths has a very specific, non abstract meaning. It means drying from ingesting the drugs.


Longwell2020 t1_j77ru0r wrote

And the authority on that the CDC ( not a small city sherif) says it's not a large risk from thc. So I am to believe the statement is misleading or manipulative.

"The signs of using too much marijuana are just like those of using marijuana, but more severe", or whatever the actual quote is (long quote, can't see the picture while I'm typing), is just such a "well, duh" statement.

I think that works for most things, the more you take in, the more they effect you.

I get that they're trying to both say "marijuana won't kill you", and "more marijuana does have an effect", but it sounds so stupid.

But not as stupid as Sheriff Billy-Bob, there, though, that thinks that marijuana is deadly.

Driving under the influence can be, so maybe in that way stronger marijuana might be more dangerous because your decision making might be impaired enough to get you behind the wheel, but even that's a real stretch.

I will say, as someone that's only smoked about once a decade, it has indeed gotten stronger each time I smoked.

But that's just personal anecdote with no real info behind it, because I have no idea of the strains I smoked or the strength of them.

Okay well, I misspelled the first one and decrime is shorthand, but I guess you never use shorthand on a day-to-day basis. On the main point, instead of pretentious grammar corrections, by that logic missouri would have legalized weed because they allow sale of it. However, they didn't because they couldn't, but they could completely decriminalize it which is what I'm talking about. Oregan didn't completely decrime hard drugs, obviously, just small amounts. In reference to canada tho, yea they are legalizing it, not decriminalizing it, because they are changing federal law. I suppose since you care about words so much, I could've bypassed both of your worthless comments by simply saying nowhere in america has legalized hard drugs like canada is planning to. Which is true
