How Much Marijuana Does It Take For Someone To Overdose?


marijuana lab laboratory testing overdoseMy friend is new to the marijuana world. He had never smoked marijuana before in his life. At the age of 50, due to health problems, he decided to start consuming marijuana because pharmaceuticals weren’t working and were wreaking havoc on his body.

He always asks me questions, and I’m going to try to post answers on TWB in case there are others out there. Also, I’m hoping people post their knowledge in the comments section below so that others can benefit. If you find some good info on marijuana overdose information, feel free to post it below.

The question I’m answering today is ‘how much marijuana does it take for someone to overdose?’ My friend is well aware that no one in recorded history has ever died from a marijuana overdose. But he wants to know if there is any amount of marijuana that someone could overdose from. According to a 1988 United States administrative law hearing:

“7. Drugs used in medicine are routinely given what is called an LD-50. The LD-50 rating indicates at what dosage fifty percent of test animals receiving a drug will die as a result of drug induced toxicity. A number of researchers have attempted to determine marijuana’s LD-50 rating in test animals, without success. Simply stated, researchers have been unable to give animals enough marijuana to induce death.

8. At present it is estimated that marijuana’s LD-50 is around 1:20,000 or 1:40,000. In layman terms this means that in order to induce death a marijuana smoker would have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times as much marijuana as is contained in one marijuana cigarette. NIDA-supplied marijuana cigarettes weigh approximately .9 grams. A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response.


9. In practical terms, marijuana cannot induce a lethal response as a result of drug-related toxicity.”

Even if someone is smoking marijuana concentrates or ‘dabs’ which can be 3-4 times more potent than their flower counterparts, that’s still hundreds of pounds of marijuana dabs within a 15 minute period. A person would pass out before they experienced a lethal dose level of marijuana. Something could harm the person if they fell while passing out resulting in death, but that’s different than the marijuana itself causing death. Some readers are probably wondering why the federal government fights so hard against marijuana research. Maybe it’s because every time they research marijuana they find out how wrong they are…

      WHAT????? I mean, can we get that mess translated into an actual sentence?

      • Huru

        Pretty sure he meant that, even if marijuana caused one’s death
        incidentally, the feeling of elation that that person would be
        experiencing before dying, thanks to the herb, would have it made
        Which is stupid.

      Someone has been indulging *wink*. I gave you a thumbs up because you managed to post regardless of your current condition and you made me laugh a little.

  • Laedeydra

    1,500 pounds = 24,000 ounces, in 15 minutes, that’s crazy!! I dare someone to try it, see how far they can go before they pass out.

    • Bobby Walton

      Wonder can I concentrate that down into one batch of brownies?

      • Pauper

        Well, @ $400 per ounce, 1,500 pounds would cost $9,600,000 … Even if you got a 50% discount for a quantity purchase you’re still looking at a $4,800,000 investment to find out. So if you’ve got 5 Million spare cash lying around ( cause drug dealers DON’T take credit cards ) then got for it !!
        And, while you’re at it, send me the $200,000 left-over cash, would you ????

    Since when is death the only deciding factor in an overdose? I would say that any dosage that would end in ill effect would constitute as an overdose. I smoke quite regularly and I would say I have overdosed on marijuana before. I blacked out at a friend’s house once and literally fell to the ground and my head slammed against my friend’s cobblestone sidewalk…I could have died had I hit my head any harder. Believe it or not, this happened from one very strong MMJ joint. I would definitely say marijuana is somewhat harmless, but it is still a drug and should be used with caution. I think that people touting marijuana to be completely harmless are incredibly irresponsible and are making uneducated guesses based upon their own experiences. I live in Colorado where it is legal and I support it being completely legal to anybody over the age of 21, but I’m not running around pretending that it is completely harmless.

    • Pat Cowdin

      Here’s a possible explanation from a report called Marijuana Health Mythology: “One common reaction is to cause decreased blood pressure while standing and increased blood pressure while lying down, causing people to faint if they stand up too quickly.”

    • alias928

      Your own fault for having not been sitting down and enjoying the joint. Marijuana did not make you get on the ground to have hit your head on the sidewalk.
      Blacking out is not an overdose, simply an effect of you having been standing.

      In other words, it is harmless (and not deadly, in small amounts). Not without side effects.

    • Jasonian42

      Sounds to me like malnutrition. Don’t blame the plant because you don’t eat properly, resulting in your blacking out when standing up too quickly.

    • Jetdoc

      It also could’ve been from taking a big bong rip and holding it IN for as long as you can too. That in and of itself deprives the brain of oxygen and would make you pass out as well. There’s A LOT of factors that could’ve played into you passing out that would have NOTHING at all to do with the plant itself. BTW… studies show that you don’t get ANYMORE THC by holding it in for 20 seconds, than you’d get by holding it in for 3 seconds

  • EphU

    In my younger days, a couple friends and I decided to test our limits. We smoked over 4 ounces (we bought 5 but one had loads of stems and seeds) of seriously decent bud in 2 days between the three of us. One of our girlfriends had a couple hits. We used a small 10 inch water bong only. We started Friday night and didn’t smoke anymore when we woke up Sunday afternoon, LOL. This all stemmed from an early D.A.R.E program flier we were given that said weed was lethal…sigh. We decided to prove them wrong. Anyway we were seriously high but found once we peaked we never got any higher. One of my friends seemed to sober up the more he smoked. He was an animal and had the metabolism of an olympic distance runner. I had childhood asthma but it declined in severity during my 20s and resurfaced in my late 50s. I had no problems keeping pace with my friends but did have some congestion later in the week. No idea if it was related. So my one experiment with unmeasured but almost constant smoking didn’t do anything out of the norm except seriously dent my cash reserve and destroy the pantry on the first night. I did have to air out the house and would have killed for some FeBreze to freshen up my furniture. The couch stunk for weeks.
    Edit: We did not smoke all 5 ounces. We had maybe an eighth of shake left and that is probably being generous.
    Take it for what its worth, jack squat except for the memories of one hell of a good weekend.

    (1) Add that the CSA is a flawed document – where are tobacco and alcohol listed in the schedules?


    has an LD50 of 0.40% BAC, with approx 100,000 deaths in the US annually


    The LD50 of nicotine is 50 mg/kg for rats and 3 mg/kg for mice. 40–60 mg (0.5-1.0 mg/kg) can be a lethal dosage for adult humans. Tobacco/nicotine accounts for nearly 1/2 million US deaths annually.


    In summary, enormous doses of Delta 9 THC, All THC and concentrated marijuana extract ingested by mouth were unable to produce death or organ pathology in large mammals but did produce fatalities in smaller rodents due to profound central nervous system depression. The non-fatal consumption of 3000 mg/kg A THC by the dog and monkey would be comparable to a 154-pound human eating approximately 46 pounds (21 kilograms) of 1%-marijuana or 10 pounds of 5% hashish at one time. In addition, 92 mg/kg THC intravenously produced no fatalities in monkeys. These doses would be comparable to a 154-pound human smoking at one time almost three pounds (1.28 kg) of 1%-marijuana or 250,000 times the usual smoked dose and over a million times the minimal effective dose assuming 50% destruction of the THC by smoking.

    Thus, evidence from animal studies and human case reports appears to indicate that the ratio of lethal dose to effective dose is quite large. This ratio is much more favorable than that of many other common psychoactive agents including alcohol and barbiturates (Phillips et al. 1971, Brill et al. 1970).

  • I’ve never over dosed on marijuana. I’d have known.

  • brfd532

    Sorry. Double post.

  • brfd532

    If it is the only thing in the world that can’t kill me then why is it illegal? That’s a strange question for sure.

    • Pauper

      It’s illegal because in 1957 Harry Anslinger, who was the first commissioner of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Federal Bureau of Narcotics, saw black jazz musicians smoking it. Being a die-hard racist, he was afraid it would lead to black men having sex with white women. So Anslinger added it as a controlled substance.
      So, basically, all of this crap about MJ being dangerous is the result of one brain-dead racist hillbilly and his unfounded paranoia.
      From the article here:
      Is the quote:
      “When he was named America’s first drug czar in 1930 Anslinger initially tried to keep the Bureau of Narcotics clear of the marijuana issue because he knew eradication would be impossible. The stuff grows, he said, “like dandelions.” But in the budget squeeze of the Great Depression he decided to create a little excitement by transforming marijuana from a low grade nuisance into an evil “as hellish as heroin.” To add a little spice he played the race card. “Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men,” said Anslinger, “…the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races.” To make sure nobody missed the point he offered this profile of the average toker “… most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos, and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz, and swing, result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers, and any others.””

      And from the article found here :
      Is the quote:
      “Again, racism was part of the charge against marijuana, as newspapers in 1934 editorialized: “Marihuana influences Negroes to look at white people in the eye, step on white men’s shadows and look at a white woman twice.”

      So sad that the total ignorance of one useless POS has caused so much misery for so many innocent people throughout so many years.
      Fortunately, that POS died on November 14, 1975 … so he’ll trouble us no longer !! YEA … WOOHOO !!!!

  • chikkie

    to overdose on mary-jane you wud have to smoke 13 pounds in 15 minutes and thats alot

    • Neal Feldman


      1500 pounds, not 13.

    • Jasonian42

      You didn’t read the article, did you?

      • Jetdoc

        Well whatever the amount… I’m WILLING to “Take one for the Team” and volunteer myself (because somebody HAS to) to be a “Test Subject” for a DUPLICATE study to actually get to the TRUTH about the ALLEGED amount it takes in order to Overdose on Cannabis. Afterall, I AM a skeptic and think it takes MUCH more than they’re claiming. But I’m afraid I may DIE before reaching the correct amount, but I’d DIE of Carbon Monoxide poisoning before smoking enough to OD. However with that SAID…I’m willing to sacrifice myself four the sale of RESEARCH! ;-) :-D

  • june

    I’d like to have enough weed to try and od……sounds like a good time

  • Rusty Bucket

    I overdose on cannabis regularly and when I do I raid the refrigerator and go to bed.

  • vishman

    well as per documentary, which i saw a while back, which is a brief history on marijuana, researchers and scientists say, to make marijuana a lethal dose – 15000 joints in 5 mins. But regardless of what figures anyone comes says, all of those figures are humanely impossible to achieve because of the short time frame the amount needs to be consumed in and given the amount that needs to be consumed in that time frame, is just impossible.

  • Devon

    They have been able to kill a monkey trying this exact test however, it was not the marijuana that killed him it was a lack of oxygen issue.
    if I’m not mistaking it was “Can Cannabis Cure Cancer” where I heard this. excellent film.
    happy smoking

    • wowFAD

      Yup, that’s the Heath/Tulane study in which those poor creatures were strapped into miniature gasmasks and inundated with cannabis smoke for five minutes at a time, without oxygen. Brain cells begin to die after about half that time without oxygen. The researchers were asphyxiating the research subjects so they could report on the “dangers” of cannabis. After the study was published, Reagan went on to tout the study as absolute proof that cannabis is dangerous.

    I had a quad does of cheeba chews. that was too much for me and it just made me lay down and smile my sleepy time to death.

    • Hardrock1a

      Holy Hell! I get quads of Cheeba’s and cut them into quarters, eat 1 piece and sleep like a baby all night. A whole one would knock ya out! One night, my sister and brother-in-law split one, a quarter each. The other half was sitting on the coffee table in front of them, their 190 pound Newfoundland walked by and snagged the half. They caught on when they could not find the other half. They said he slept like a log all night long, which is apparently unheard of with him. Then the next day he was bouncing around like a pup. And this is a dog that has had hip problems since he was a puppy and has had a couple of surgeries on his hips and hind quarters. They could tell he felt better that day than he had in a long time.

  • tsuruchi

    Living in California, I have already read about little dogs and children who have died from health complications from eating edibles made with concentrates. Granted, their body size was a considerable factor, and it was not the overdose per se, but the health complications from having such a high dose in a small body, but the end result was death. Concentrates are becoming more common, and we in the weed culture have known marijuana as an ‘impossible to OD’ drug for so long it is understandable that people still treat it that way with edibles, oil, and wax, not being aware that these high doses, particularly for children, can put their health at risk. For adults, the worst you can expect is an allergic reaction, or passing out for a while. Children and dogs on the other hand can get heart attacks or slip into a comma. I love green. And of course, these stories are purely anecdotal, but it is some food for thought.

    • John

      Please provide some evidence to back up your claim that children and animals have died, otherwise your anecdotal claim is worthless. Anecdotal 1.(of an account) not necessarily true or reliable.

      The truth is no one has died as a result of using marijuana in and of itself. Google “child dies after ingesting marijuana” or “dog dies after ingesting marijuana” or any term you can think of and dies after ingesting.

      Over 46,000 people died in this country after ingesting alcohol in 2010 alone, not related to accidents.
      Zero people have EVER died in this country from as a result of consuming marijuana.

    • Klae A. Klevenger

      Dogs are actually allergic to marijuana. There have been multiple papers suggesting that dogs are having negative effects to marijuana smoke and edibles. Small dogs could have died yes. But at the same time I have fed my roommates chiuaua weed for 4 plus years and smoked it out. While it definitely made the dog a stoner and has made it so “drunk” it couldn’t stand it still lived through it. It just stopped eating marijuana for a bit. Children have NOT died. Unless I see an article with enough facts in the lies I will have to say, you have NO clue what you are talking about.

      • wednesday

        Sorry but researchers are actually using cannabis to treat dogs. No animals are allergic to cannabis. No one has ever died from cannabis. It is impossible to die from THC.

        • John

          There is some evidence that dogs can have Allergic Inhalant dermatitis from exposure as evidenced in the article BUT this is from 1989 and Google doesn’t find any other citings.

        • Klae A. Klevenger
          • John

            Sure we are. Link to one “paper” showing a link between dogs and marijuana toxicity. Not anecdotal evidence that you “know” this is occurring and not a newspaper article where it is not apparent that the vet even knows what the heck they are talking about. Chocolate causes an almost identical reaction. Did you read the comments attached to the article you linked to?

        • dre420

          some people are allergic to everything but one type of food and one type of drink people and animals can be allergic to anything even water dam smoked himself retarded hahaha

        I have a pain in the ass little dog, Pug/Doxy mix, that has the worst habit of scrounging. I put hubby’s x-mas present from a friend a gallon ziplock FULL of HUGE choco chip/mj cookies from a grower. To give an idea of how potent they were a 1x1inch cube knocked me on my ass. We left and came home to an empty bag of cookies and a dog on the recliner that could only whimper. I was up with her and held her all night, I really thought she was going to die of the chocolate, but she didn’t. She was acting like she was on an acid trip and had the spins. She has a really bad habit of finding anything made with chocolate, it is going be the death of her one day. She is 17lbs and the weight of the bag was probably 5 lbs.

        • Hardrock1a

          I laughed, but only because I know that the cannabis would not hurt her, but wow.. that’s a lot for a little dog!! Good to know that she is okay!

    • the dude

      noone has died from a pot od. i also live in california. so that makes me a expert also.

      Tell that to my buddy who’s bull (yes a bull) ate an entire seven foot tall plant. That bull was definitely happy for a few days, but he didn’t die.

      • DirtNerdy

        The dog ate the plant wet and raw. At this stage the plant contains THCA, which is not phsycoactive. It has to dry to become Delta-9 THC, so the bull was ok. Eating it wet will not harm you at all, if anything you will feel healthy as ever.

  • CannabisCures

    Tsuruchi, your statement implies that children have died due to complications from cannabis ingestion. That statement is absolutely false. As for animals dying due to eating edibles, its probably because those edibles contained chocolate, which as I hope you know is poisonous to many animals as it contains theobromine.

    • Berpestio

      I saw my dog devour a few chocolate bars one time. She lived for good while after that. I feed my cat chocolate. He loves it!

    1500 pounds would found out to a street value of 4.5 million. So just to try you’d have to have 5 million laying around. 3000 per pound is what the cops count it for a pound, and that’s about the retail value of one here in Arkansas. I know on Cali you can get a pound for much cheaper though.
    It’s still humanly impossible. Even if you made oil from all that, it would be around 10 pounds of oil. The largest dab ever done was 90 grams and it was in a tent with 20 people inhaling.

    • Shawn Joseph

      just remember you get what you pay for also that cheaper stuff is no diffrent than brick mexican bud except it wasnt compressed

      • dre420

        ya and if its sucky like brick mexican bud then the prices should be the same what they were 1.75-2grams for 5 3.5-4grams for 10 and 7-8grams for a 20 sack wish i was in highschool swag or reggie could smoke a blunt for 5 bucks and feel high

          If one would spend some time in Tucson Az, they would understand that the schwag/seedy Mexican herb sent around the country is the equivalent of kraft cheese slices. The locals keep all the smoked gouda :) Tucson is the funnel that tens of thousands of pounds travel through in the spring, and if you are of the opinion that no quality cannabis comes from Mexico, you are simply uninformed

  • MS Defier

    Hey there, I have Multiple Sclerosis, and decided to tell the doctors to stick there narcotics, and brain infection treatments up where the sun doesn’t shine. They told me I’d be in a wheel chair in 6 months if I didn’t follow doctors orders. I was told that 5 years ago, and til this day I still walk just fine. I smoke. And that has worked for me.

    My Question: I live on the south east cost of the U.S. Where it is not legal. I’d like a prescription, how does that work, or does it all outside of California? How do I get one?

    Its been working for years, but Jail time and fines is counter productive to “Low stress life style” I need to maintain. What should I do?

    • Ben Henderson

      The prescriptions arn’t legal in SC. In SC it is a schedule IV drug which means it has no accepted medical uses. I know its fucking retarded but thats the law here. I would just stay low key and youll be alright.

    • Animal

      Oregon probably has the simplest system. We go to the Dr’s and get copies of our chart notes for our qualifying conditions, I think you need at least three to start. You take these chart notes to your marijuana Dr (unless your personal Dr will sign it for you).Then after that only one chart note per year is required to renew. You can have six mature plants of unlimited size, 18 immature clones or seedlings under 12 inches, and 1-1/2 pounds of dried cannabis. You can grow for yourself, or have a grower grow it for you. Washington’s laws need to worked on in my opinion, personally I would not move there from Oregon, we have the best medical program out there I think.

  • 2CaptainLovechild7

    Some good strains of MJ could knock a novice smoker on the ass. MariJuana still has an up coming fight, what about the recreational smoker that wants to smoke quality MJ. I started smoking with my cousin she was many years older, then I smoked with associates, some good strains word of mouth the smoke was Acapulco Gold/Panama Red. I carried this into the AF (was let go) then stopped until I turned 25 years old. I started researching the who, what and how of MJ. I love to smoke a good strain, it haas medicinal effects (some strains have calming effects (couch lock) and some strains (good S’s) make me want to go like the roadrunner. We do not know what to do with legalized MJ.

    I think even if you could manage to smoke 1, 500 pounds in a 15 minute span, the ultimate factor to your demise would most likely be smoke inhalation. I’m no rocket scientist, but I’ve done my fair share of “hot boxing” and it wasn’t the thc that was bothering me…it was the smoke! Also, to the person who commented about passing out, here’s some advice…go to a hospital and get a checkup done to see if you have any history of illnesses that may factor into this “passing out spell” you experienced. I myself have hypoglycemia, so if I don’t eat anything before I start smoking, I too experience these spells. Although, I don’t try to blame my symptoms on a “drug” that has no history or record of anyone ever dying from it. My friends and I have managed to blaze thru a half pound in 1 sitting, and none of us went to the hospital or the morgue!
    “Speak the facts…not your mind”

    • Christopher Steele

      Mind you all, smoking 1,500 lbs of anything in fifteen minutes would be such a ludicrous task… impossible really. I’m certain in a lab setting where they’re not choking animals with smoking and saying pot killed them, they will use a thc solution administered some sort of way.

    • Winnie Cornish

      How true, How true.

  • Roger Bachman

    The animals that Died didn’t OD on cannabis they died of suffocation from all of the smoke.

  • StoneyFaced

    Actually, it is possible to die by a marijuana related death. Every person in this world is allergic to something, many things. I had a friend when I was younger who was allergic to THC and didnt know for a while, & he would smoke with whoever was smoking around him & each time he woud end up dizzy & nauseated and start breaking out and getting shorto of breath. He didnt die, but he stopped smoking completely once his doctor told him that he was allergic and he was lucky the reaction didnt get worse. Like any allergic reaction, they vary in severity from person to person. What made him dizzy & short of breath could close someonesthroat up & ashipxiate a person. Im not knocking weed, hell i love it, its great for my anxiety and sleep problems as well as mood stabilizer. & no marijuana will not kill you ever if your are healthy & have no allergies to anything like that your all set. No worries anywhere when it comes to God’s Green Pastures ;)

    • Kyle

      That’s due to an allergic reaction though, researchers are trying to determine how much THC will kill a healthy average human being. Without any variables like allergic reactions.

      • Peter Webber

        The endocannabinoid system look it up . Thats all that I have to say.

    • jeff

      So you automatically think it was the THC? Do you really think that a cannabis bud is just THC? Maybe you just failed to take into account the hundreds of other chemicals and possible plant allergens that only a select few are sensitive to when using cannabis…

      Please don’t jump to conclusions without thinking a little deeper than a buddy that’s ‘allergic to thc’!

      • elcuervo

        Yes, really, when “I was younger” the DEA was spraying Mexican crops with paraquat…

    • Keith Ritman

      Someone could have stupidly used a bug spray or other pesticide. It could have been crop dusted. However, some people who smoke for the first time get tachacardia, and overly paranoid panic attack symptoms. This us a natural reaction as the cbd and THC expand your lung capacity and your brain adjusts your heart rate to match. Eating edibles also kills off bad cultures in your digestive tract and your body makes quick readjustments. All of these symptoms are normal but to first time smokers can be alarming

    This is why marijuana is illegal in the U.S.A. It’s illegal because in 1957 Harry Anslinger, who was the first commissioner of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Federal Bureau of Narcotics, saw black jazz musicians smoking it. Being a die-hard racist, he was afraid it would lead to black men having intercourse with white women. So Anslinger added it as a controlled substance. So, basically, all of this crap about MJ being dangerous is the result of one brain-dead racist hillbilly and his unfounded paranoia.

    From the article here: bit(DOT)ly/1cjJFfk

    Is the quote: “When he was named America’s first drug czar in 1930 Anslinger initially tried to keep the Bureau of Narcotics clear of the marijuana issue because he knew eradication would be impossible. The stuff grows, he said, “like dandelions.” But in the budget squeeze of the Great Depression he decided to create a little excitement by transforming marijuana from a low grade nuisance into an evil “as hellish as heroin.” To add a little spice he played the race card. “Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men,” said Anslinger, “…the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races.” To make sure nobody missed the point he offered this profile of the average toker “… most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos, and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz, and swing, result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek se|xual relations with Negroes, entertainers, and any others.””

    And from the article found here : bit(DOT)ly/1cG4umh

    Is the quote: “Again, racism was part of the charge against marijuana, as newspapers in 1934 editorialized: “Marihuana influences Negroes to look at white people in the eye, step on white men’s shadows and look at a white woman twice.”

    • Smoke m if you got m

      Actually the pharmaceutical industry and the alcohol industry lobbied against pot in 37 and won because it was way easier to tax and regulate alcohol and man made drugs than something anyone can grow.

  • victorforsythe

    Cannabis is a great cure for stupidity. Marijuana was legal 100 years ago and sold in Drug stores under the name CANNABIS. Suddenly its illegal because they invent a new name for it. Marijuana is a slang term like POT or Reefer. It is not SPANISH! Why not use the English word instead of showing what most Americans really are; ignorant idiots.

    • Anthony Booth

      It’s “Bud” sir.

      • victorforsythe

        Thanks, “Bud”.

    • Troy Cazares

      So where are you from not all americans are stupid and what is the coment about it not being spanish, i believe they only one here that is a bit lame would be you sir,

      • victorforsythe

        Americans are really really STUPID! 9-11 WAS A REALLY STUPID INSIDE JOB. How else can you explain Harry Anslinger being able to fool United Statesians into thinking Marijuana was a menace to Society when they were already selling it in all drug stores under the name of Cannabis and growing it under the name of HEMP? Why use a foreign slang term to describe a plant that already has an English word? He made fools out of all of you. Yes I was not brought up in your USA.

        • victorforsythe


      • victorforsythe

        He was an idiot racist too

    • Jared Abdullah Garrison

      the word marijuana is what the spanish called it…thats why they tried to blame the blacks and spanish as using it to take white women…watch refer madness and you will see how they used “weed” to start a passive aggressive race war…everyone smokes weed, so why are mostly only blacks and browns locked up for it…it aint spanish

      • victorforsythe

        Marijuana is NOT SPANISH! Its a MEXICAN slang word like pot.

        • Jared Abdullah Garrison

          not like pot…”for” pot…making the “word” spanish…you may not realize it, but saying “marijuana” is using a hispanic slang for weed….making it spanish…same plant is called something else in another language and region…and mexicans “are” spanish..

  • Jared Abdullah Garrison

    “refer madness”…watch it…

    • Winnie Cornish

      That movie was alot of bullshit believe me I know..Have been using herb for over 40yrs one the best meds on the market..all natural.

      • Jared Abdullah Garrison

        the point was to show what type of people pushed what stereotype on what race of people…now all of a sudden, they recant their statements and proceed to take solidarity in the weed now…

  • spankme

    I’m a retired ER nurse, the only patient I ever had come into my ER for weed was a man about 200 pounds who ate a cookie and didn’t feel good. At about thirty minutes later he barffed up the cookie and went home. Weed is a gift from God use it well.

    • JoshyBalls

      I love you spankme. lol

      • painkills2

        Your goddess has left the building…

  • Sister

    Well, as a nurse(working in germany) I can say, that it depends on your constitution and on what you are used to.THC can cause Tachyarrhythmia and that makes you feel not so good.But I also never heard about someone dying after it and never saw someone dying in 20 years of work in an emergency room in a hospital.Use it carefully…

  • alex

    the study was done years ago. even with this new study, the out come was the same. i read in a mag years ago that it would take 40000 times the amount that it takes to get you high to cause an OD.. occational to chronic pot users are different due to tolerance.

  • nick sands

    All the research I have done I ave learned it would take about 1500 pounds to die smoking and it would not be due to thc overdose but from carbon monoxide poisoning. if he is eating it I have no idea but im assuming it would be more than that considering it isn’t smoke containing carbon monoxide

    • Chad Harris

      True about the Carbon monoxide. about eating enough to induce a lethal response… In every instance where it appeared that an individual I knew tried to od on edibles. Every time He just passed out. and he is still trying. AFIK.

  • JoshyBalls

    Dude, I almost od’d on pot once. A quarter pound of green crack went missing one night and I woke up with my head in a bad of Cheetos. It took a couple hours to recover from that night.

  • Michelle DiGiacomo

    I think the easiest way to overdo it is eat too much edibles. Years ago, I made brownies with pot butter. Many stuck to the pan and broke off and left about 1/3 of the brownie in the pan. I proceeded to eat a few brownies (they were small) but I kept eating all the crumbs that broke off. OMG. Was I ever wasted. I ate an orange (don’t know why, read it somewhere) and went to bed. I slept for about 14 hours and was still high. It lasted for about 2 days. Those who are not used to edibles need to be very careful. It won’t kill you, it will knock you out. It can also make a novice very paranoid and think they are dying but they are simply paranoid. I worry about edibles when people are not aware. They might eat a cookie and 15 minutes later, eat another 2 or 3, not realizing they need to wait an hour for the effects to kick in. I haven’t eaten or smoked anything in over a year but am waiting for the law in my state to kick in. I miss it and now have to take narcotics for pain, which I hate.

    • painkills2

      Hey Michelle, I can’t imagine any dispensary would sell an edible without instructions on its use, so you shouldn’t be so worried. Now, you COULD worry about people leaving their edibles lying around willy-nilly, without proper storage, if you really need something to worry about. :)

      Thanks for sharing your brownie story. I have also tried edibles for sleep (but have not made my own), and I have never obtained the effects you describe. Hardly any effect at all, really. However, I am more of the opinion (see Mr. Cazares post, above) that it would sure be “nice” to sleep for 14 hours, just once…

      If you don’t mind sharing, which opioids do you take for pain? If I could get an idea of your tolerance level (and how much pot you put in your brownies, right?), then it would really help me out. Peace out.

  • Meyer Carlos

    the weed its such a nice drug that it puts you to sleep so you dont overdose! awwwww!

    • painkills2

      There’s a reason that cannabis flowering plants are female. :)

  • Troy Cazares

    Hello everyone I have been smoking marijuana for about 37 years and making and eating edibles just as long and I have eaten alot of edibles and the worst thing to happen to me was I fell asleep for about 8 hours I don’t sleep much so it was nice, i make my edibles very strong for that reason sleep. I grow my own i harvest every 60 days all indoor, I make my own hash, concentrats or dabs sauce, butter and chocolates and gummy bears i love cooking with it so its like everything else moderation and enjoy puff puff

  • Winnie Cornish

    Got that right Troy the worst that can happen from using too much marijuana is falling asleep for a few hours…

  • Someone

    iv had a depression with to much marijuana. IV dont say i stopt after, but it has its drawbacks if u use it wrong like i did first.

    • Doc Undy

      MJ makes me very paranoid gives me headaches and insomnia.But I realise that I’m in a small minority and fight for MJ to be legalised!

      • Nick V

        trust me it isn’t a small minority.. 82% of the current population says a lot

        • Doc Undy

          where did you get that figure of 82% of adverse effects? Co z that is what I was referring to when I mentioned minority.

      • David Worley

        What does legal Alcohol drinks do to you Doc Undy… Just curious…

        • Doc Undy

          David – All alcohol is legal here in South Australia where I live and MJ has also been decriminalised for over 30 years. I hardly drink anything these days. When I do drink it’s usually a couple of glasses of wine or spirits like tequila. I don’t think the alcohol is responsible. I have Asperger’s and Bipolar – these 2 diagnoses are more likely to account for the Mj adverse effects. That’s why I said I am in the minority of Mj users who have bad reactions to it.

          • painkills2

            Doc, do you have any adverse effects from alcohol?

          • Doc Undy

            Only headaches …..but I rarely drink and when I do it’s only a few glasses of wine or mixed spirits. The headache will start around 20 – 45 mins after starting to drink. So not good & is a great way to avoid booze :o)

      • ms girl

        You need to try a different strain, like Indica, instead of a Sativa or hybrid. Sativa does the same to me – paranoia, nausea, insomnia. Indica is the opposite – great paih control and a nice, dreamy night’s sleep.

        • Doc Undy

          Thanx for your suggestions ms girl…. I wouldn’t know how to get hold of strains. The only way would be for me to raise some. Possibly the Indica strain is something that I haven’t experienced. Would be very interesting to know for sure.

          • Charlie

            Try some Brainstorm Haze, its a good indica strain. its hard to find but you’ll thank me.

            Its very common in Amsterdam/Netherlands though..

      • kushman

        Different strands of marajuana affect oeople differently as far as headaches, etc. Some get headaches from perp, like myself. If u smoke and are stressed or worried and dnt relax then those feelings can be intensified. You should start with a mellow marajuana and work your way up to find the one that works for you. Wether it is to get very relaxed or put u to sleep. The pipe or piece u use also can affect hiw your lungs react..big hits or smaller smooth hits can differ dependin on how u partake should u choose inhale method. Id suggest a middy with a vaporizer to start with..

        • Doc Undy

          Thanx for the info kushman. I appreciate your suggestions. I’m not sure what you mean by ‘perp’ gives you headaches. I agree with you that your current mood can be intensified. Which makes me wonder how it’s a good idea for soldiers to smoke weed in a war zone….as in Vietnam for example. Obviously it has that relaxing effect and doesn’t give them paranoia to the point where they can’t function and survive.

          I’ve been smoking Mj since 1973. Hell that’s over 40 years. It’s possible that I’ve missed a few strains….but I’ve traveled also and get the same effects…It would be nice to get some known strain with those characteristics you mentioned, and see how I react to it.

          I use an old brass pipe and have used many methods over the decades. I usually take it easy on the inhale otherwise it burns your throat. Also small amounts at 1 time versus large amounts over a shorter time. I’d love to try this new “vapouriser” technique. I may order one online. Can you recommend a good one?.

          • kushman

            Glad to help…perp is jus another classification of a strain like kush is..perp hits hard and kush is mellow.. ditch the brass pipe and go for a bubbler orlarge bong and fill the neck almost full of ice cubes. One of the smoothest strains I have come across is called green can hit it hard and it doesnt make you cough, dry throat or get that burnin in your throat. .diff pieces affe t how the hit feels..stong strains need a shorter pipe so as not to make you cough out yer lungs. Longer pipes and bongs are best used for less hard hitting strains..its a science to getting that hit which u prefer..any bubbler or bong, or pieces which use water will dillute the thc amt and the length will cool the smoke hence a smoother hit. The vaporizors u gott watch because u beeathe normal and dnt take drags. But once again the strain strength can make you cough. Coughs intensify the hit effect. Its a trial and error thing and differs from person to person as to tolerance of how much of a hit u can take. Stick with kush and use a small bubbler would be a good start..any vaporizer will work. Cheap one will be fine.. marajuana quality differs by country and growth technique. Hydro ponic is differ from out door grow, have fun experimenting and jus find wat suits you..

          • Kenneth Beilis

            vapor does great aswell.the thing is like 120 dollors but it is so werth it.

      • Kenneth Beilis

        regi gives me headaches. so i went to loud and there gone haha.

  • Bill Conway Sr.

    Sort of makes the statement,”smoked until you were straight” mean something?

  • David Worley

    Good Info.. A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response.

    So let me imagine this… If I could find a truck load of top quality buds much larger than one of those huge farm round bales of Hay, could get it wrapped in a joint bigger than a Mini van. Tapper it down to fit into my mouth. Fire it up and capture all of the smoke. Suck it all into my lungs in less than fifteen minutes. Then and only then I May get enough to maybe Overdose me … “Damn, That is some seriously dangerous Drugs”…

  • ms girl

    Why can’t people just smoke weed instead of taking it to a next, dangerous, level? Smoking pot, not this wax shit, has never made someone OD. The people who feel they need to go to the “extreme” with everything they do are going to ruin it for people like me who smoke pot for pain control (my issue is multiple sclerosis). I cannot take “pharmaceutical” pain meds because they make me very ill. Pot, a natural herb, has given me the option to get the occasional pain control and sleep aid I need desparately. But, I imagine that these idiots who are making “chemical weed” are going to ruin it for the rest of us. Idiots!

    • J

      We wont let them, draw the line in the sand and don’t stand for any fool considering the two the same, tell them it is like comparing crack to water. Most Fake dope/Flake/Spice whatever is but a mimic, which means it isn’t anything like cannabis chemically or otherwise, is just mimics the reactions in the endocannabinoid receptors, though causing havoc to the rest of the body in the process. “Fake” is lethal, where as cannabis can only kill you if a bale of it falls on you.

  • ms girl

    And wax is produced with Butane. Anyone who wants to put Butane in their system is going to have problems. Just be happy and smoke herb that is all natural! Good Grief! Why escalate things and make it unsafe? Smoke a bowl, not a piece of wax!

    • As long as the process is done right, wax is safer than smoking regular weed. There is much less particulate matter being inhaled when a person vaporizes a dab.

    • dontask

      Actually lighting a bowl is butane too. Hemp wick is cleaner.

    • Mitch

      Ice wax isn’t created with butane. And there’s nothing wrong with wax. It’s so pure and you vaporize on a titanium nail. Hitting a bowl is worse for you than hitting wax.

    • Bruce Morris

      Well! in defense of wax of BHO. once extracted, and the process is complete there is no butane left. The only thing that would concern the smoker would be benzene. If you are doing it right there is no Benzene either. You are left with only non polar materials i.e. THC, CBD’s, CBN’s, Terpenes, and possibly 1 to 2 % polar material which is plant matter.
      We don’t want to smoke plant matter. That is the same as smoking grass, sticks, or paper. Those materials create carbon, and carbon is the thing that may cause cancer.
      Look at your pipe or bong. ya see all that black build up? That is mostly carbon.
      Now smoke some Wax in wax skillet. The residue you get left over is clean even after it is smoked because it vaporize’s the wax. And you only have to take one or two hits to get Medicated.

      • Bruce Morris

        some people are accountants some people are firemen. Me I grow weed for a living! It’s just what I do.
        The picture’s that say 420 on the bottom. Those I did for a video instruction. The people at 420 Mag said ” It’s the fastest they have ever seen grown” 45 day total grow.

        • greenfingers

          would love to pick ur brains some time about how to increase yield lol

  • Blunted

    Actually there are recorded deaths because of marijuana, and that’s not only because of injuries while passing out.
    Marijuana increases your heartbeat rate, and that could cause a heart failure or a heart arrest(i don’t really know how to name the terms in english).

    I somke it anyways though, =)

    • Bruce Morris

      I have a heart condition, and cannabis would not be the cause of death. Your Heart Condition would be listed in the corners report.
      For Cannabis to be a cause of Death! there can be no other factors in any shape or form.

      A perfectly healthy person takes x amount of opiates will die right a way, no way to save their life period.

      look at it like this. You got a bad leg , you walk with a limp. your walking on a trail in the mountains, and fall off the mountain. what was the real reason. the bad leg? the height of the mountain? and do we outlaw mountains? or Bad legs? no you simply post a sign that says “Hey if ya got a bad leg ya may not want to walk up this mountain!”
      Now some people like Me have a VERY SLOW heart rate (resting hr of 26… this in fact will kill you alone. so your saying that if I smoke some weed and it increases My heart rate I would die?

    • Knowledge kitty

      Marijuana is a depressant drug, it brings your heart rate down and relaxes your body. It is more likely to slow your heart to the point it stops then speed it up to give you a heart attack or heart failure

      • greenfingers

        marijauna is not a depressant it is actually a stimulant. It increases ur heart rate. this is a most noticable affect during a “whitie” which is something most regular smoker will have experienced at least once. just because it makes u sleepy doesnt mean it is a depressant. and yes it has been linked to deaths with ppl who have pre exsisting heart conditions either pre diagnosed or not. This in my eyes is another reason for legalisation. If someone with knowledge is giving it to patients then deatsh like those mentioned could be avoided. Also plants have not been genetically engineered to increase the potency. this has been achieved through cross breeding over many generations of plants not by genetically modifying them and even with the increase in potency it is no where near 10 times what they use to be. the only difference is good weed is easier to get now instead of the cheap crap with sand and sugar crushed into it to add weight.

        • Hank McMillin

          Marijuana is not a stimulant nor a depressant! It’s in its own classification “cannabis” this is because it shares characteristics of all the other main drug classifications.

  • pothead

    I’m sorry there is no possible way to overdose on pot. I am a veteran pot smoker. Pot is unique in its own ways. For one pot that comes from the same exact plant can only get u so high. For two have any of u smoked your self sober? I have and it sucks. This new weed that they say the potency is 10 times the normal amount in your average pot are nothing but fake pot chemically bioally it is fake pot. Stupid scinetest that are making this shit are going to ruin it for us. Next thing u know we will have the first person that died from pot. Weed cant kill and you cant overdose on pot but u can overdose on this fake weed. Stupid

  • Chris

    one thing this doesn’t talk about is all the genetically modified (naturally or even artificially) marijuana that contains a lot more THC than normal

    • Matt McCormick

      It still doesn’t matter. The most potent strains you can buy are anywhere from 25-30% THC. Even if you could get a strain with 50% THC, you’d would have to consume multiple times your body weight in a few minutes. It is impossible to overdose on THC.

  • Hillbilly Bud Man

    well i tell you all what if there was anyone that was going to od on weed it would have been me my sistewr an he ex b/fs sister they were the 2joints me not high sisters an i was cheif burn a bowl we smoked from day light till dark some days no stop i would like to see most people do that than all the damn pain killers for sure

    This is sort of what I am looking for. My question is about ED50 – the efficacy doses both smoked and ingested with a medible. Personally if I smoke a half a gram or a gram I’m feeling perfect.

        I agree, this guy is beyond stupid. I would like to know the source of his info and how dated it is, or whether or not it was his mom who told him this. If he has an actual source it must be from the 60’s or 70’s period when marijuana was being brought down by the “Reefer Madness” campaign. There has never been a single death in the 5000 years of records we have on marijuana, even the monks who smoked hashish, the most concentrated form of marijuana in history, although ours is much more potent now.

    • Mat

      Well sir/ma’am, I am 150 pounds. so ur telling me i have to smoke 150 pounds of weed total to die from bud. Well I’m glad I quit for my career because I’m pretty sure within my time frame of smokin it up. I’m pretty damn sure I’m close to 150 pounds. Where ur time frame dude? Scientifically proven. Smh

      • ertzuil

        Its actually closer to 1500lbs in 15 minutes for fatality, although you would like die from asphyxia trying to smoke anything like that much that quickly. The 1500lbs is based on an “average” human being, which is usually around 5ft5 – 5ft6 and 135-155lbs

  • Ashley_V

    What’s interesting is that the pharmaceutical industry made sales of $329 Billion (with a ‘B’) in the US alone in 2011; in 2012: $331 Billion; in 2013 back to $329 Billion. Worldwide in 2013 it was a staggering $839 Billion. While stats have varied, in 2009 prescription drug related deaths (not counting any street drugs) was 37,485 while marijuana was at zero, zilch, nada. The only reason why marijuana has been demonized and still is illegal in many states is due to the choke hold the pharmaceutical industry has on politics. When I had kidney failure in 2013, one hospital gave me pain killers with pages of dangerous side-effects. I tried pot for the first time in my life and the only complication I experienced was sleepiness and tranquility. Needless to say my views on pot changed after that experience. Also, alcohol related deaths far exceed the side-effects of sleepiness and having the munchies. It’s an irrational fear that many people have of a safer, natural alternative.

    • John

      Not only are the pharmaceutical industry making Billions of dollars don’t forget about the money that the Government is giving local law enforcement, and the Billions of dollars drug cartels are making. Just ask Colorado and Orego.

  • Kate S

    Went to a new doctor yesterday. After the initial physical and interview we spoke about my Xanax prescription and this 4 page form I had to initial to get the prescription. She informed me that if I smoke pot and she piss tests me and finds it I cannot have my Xanax. When asked why she said the FDA said if I take xanax and smoke pot, I may go to sleep and never wake up. I asked for studies on this and she said she didn’t know of any. I asked if she would like to do one since I have had this routine for over 10 years and I am still waking up every morning. The FDA has no ideas about marijuana and are still going on “Reefer Madness” info. Antiquated and useless agency that is kept working by Big Pharma. As my sister’s doctor did the exact same thing to her yesterday, it must be a new law to help protect Big Pharma for Americans educating themselves and wanting to take control of their own health.

  • Michael

    I think anything that has medicinal value can be called a “Drug”. So a Cannabis “Overdose” isn’t fatal, that doesn’t mean you can smoke enough to induce ill effects. I know I have smoked my self sick before. Ive eaten too many edibles and been a useless person all day. Id call that an overdose.

    • kitty

      That’s not an overdose. It’s impossible to OD with marijuana, so stop bullshitting people who have no knowledge about mj. Your high affects everyone differently, there are also two categories of weed and one makes you more lazy and the other is an active high… Also, if you’re a lazy person in general, it’s not gunna make you run around. If you have motivation, Weed will not do that to you. I’m not trying to be offense, but as someone who smokes Weed everyday (and dabs) and as someone with knowledge on the topic, I hate to see people run it down and scare others from trying it. It’s and great thing when not used carelessly and even carelessly, Weed doesn’t hurt people (maybe the smoke itself is hot and will burn your throat, but that’s it) Thank you and goodnight*drops mic*

        Well said, kitty

      • Steve White

        Yall are both wrong. If your gonna be a stoner know your shit. For god sake i hate that shit. Kitty you are right that it dont make lazy but you can over dose on weed. If watch that video youll learn that it takes 9 times your body weight to od. This fucking website sucks ass and a probally will not be getting back on ever again. One bitch said he 1500 pounds “acidently” he said. Like get fuck out. Lolol

        • YoungSweetJones

          Are you fucking stupid? First of all half of what you said isnt even proper english. Second of all you sound like youre fucking 13. You dont know anything lmao youd have to smoke a fuck ton of bud to overdose and youd fucking die from smoke inhalation long before that happened. I fucking hate little kids who think they know everything.

          jesus I can’t even look at her ugly face

  • Dave

    i have tried to overdose on weed many times. the farthest ive gotten is a pound in 24 hrs… It is not possible to OD from weed. for fucks sake, legalize it already

    • Shamic

      Lol you lightweight. I’ve smoked close to 1.1 pounds in 24 hours.

    • Dank bob square up pants

      How the F*CK did you get $4,480 worth of
      dank a$$ w€€d and smoke all of it in a day.

      • Dude with the vape van

        pot head of the year award goes to that guy that smoked $4,480 worth of weed in a day

        • Alex

          Nigga where you get $4,480 from?? Lmao, yes top quality weed goes for around $4000 but dont be throwing out exact prices acting like you know shit haha, the kid was most likely smoking reggie ya morons, and most dank goes for around $3000 – $4000, even shit on the street get sold for around that much. But also it is very highly unlikely any1 will or could smoke a pound in a day, very obsurd statement to make.

          • Zachary

            Not true, i smoked two and a half pounds in one day.?

          • Joe Pitelka

            Or he just buys ounces for $280 or something. That would make a pound $4,480. No need to call someone out for no reason

  • Bob

    Even if THC itself was a dangerous substance that causes mental problems, it would still be extremely remarkable how non-toxic marijuana is. There are few substances like this.

  • Blake Ballard

    it still smells bad

    • Dank bob square up pants

      The sm€ll of sum dank a$$ mery jaaaaaaaaaaaane ak(47)a, w€€d smells better than dat ass hole you’ve been eating

      (that was a joke)

      • Shamic

        A joke? As in “haha” joke?

  • Shamic

    Keep it ill-eagle
    I smoked 1500 pounds accidentally, and nearly overdosed.

    • Alex

      Shut the fuck up kid, 100 pounds of weed would cost almost $400,000!! So 1500 pounds would cost over $6,000,000!! Lmfao ur str8 retarded, go kill urself

      • Joe Pitelka

        I had to make an account just to ask you if your comment was sincere. If this comment is a joke then that’s one thing, but if you really think this guy was serious then wow, learn to take a joke. You really think he ACCIDENTALLY smoke 1500 POUNDS of weed in 15 mins? The whole point of that statistic is to make you laugh because of the fact that it would be impossible-as far as I’m aware-to smoke even close to that much in 15 mins.

    At 55, I have decided to move to Colorado, buy a B&B that’ll allow pot parties, give psychic readings and serve edibles. There’s so much misinformation out there about marijuana and it pisses me off to no end. If there were ONE Big Pharma company out there that had the balls to start making medical marijuana products (THCV helps a person lose weight; THCV, CBD, CBDA, CBC, CBG & Limonene inhibits cancer cell growth; CBD reduces blood sugar levels; THCA, CBG aids in sleep; etc. [×662.jpg]), there would be ONE Big Pharma company left in the world. Marijuana cures it all and you don’t have to have the THC (it’s just one of the benefits).

  • Purple Princess

    Comments are either closed to this article or my opinion of Big Pharma was too outlandish for them to approve my previous post. So I’m going to delete my account. Y’all can make all the stupid, uninformed remarks you want to. And this site is more than welcome to perpetuate the continuation of misinformation. As for me, I’m moving to Colorado, buying a B&B that’ll be 420 friendly, serve edibles, etc.

    • Seb ‘xplo’ Lemery

      you sound like a cunt.

  • charles51

    Funny. According to Rolling Stone Magazine, Bruce Lee died from ingesting cannabis, in the form of hashish.

    • Seb ‘xplo’ Lemery

      they are full of shit, his wife must have killed him. Don’t believe everything you see on the internet old man.

      • charles51

        Yah, must have been the curse :)

    • Renaud Duquette

      also, maybe that the hash that Bruce ingested was extracted with a solvent like butane, propane, etc. and if he had a condition or problems with his system he could’ve died from that but i would’nt be an overdose on cannabis. The hash probably made him feel less pain during though.

    • Hunter

      I’m not sure where they got their info from, but Bruce Lee died from brain swelling due to some pain medication he took for a headache.

      • charles51

        An alergic reaction is different than an overdose. A minute exposure to an alergen can be fatal.

    • Lemar Jerk-douche

      The official cause of his death was listed as cerebral edema (brain swelling) caused by a hyper sensitive reaction to the muscle relaxant meprobamate in the painkiller Equagesic that he had taken for a headache. Dumb ass lyer.

      • charles51

        Yes, the official cause of death was cerebral edema, as was the actual cause of his death. The coroner listed Equagesic as the trigger, in spite of there being no precedent of this. Years later, Rolling Stone did an in depth story on the death of Bruce Lee. They concluded that it’s far more likely that he suffered an allergic reaction to hashish that he was eating just before his death. This is not an OD, because a small amount of allergen can cause massive reaction and death. I’ve been trying to find the link to the article, but it was a long time ago, so no luck. Lemar, I’m just relaying what I read, chill out!

  • Chandler Shedd

    I want to be the first person to die from it, don’t judge
