      I don’t know where you get your information,but we can OVERDOSE on anything…even water. Too much of any one thing can cause overdose. I’m not saying death, but overdose.

        You can overdose on marijuana like many other things. Overdose does not mean death.

        To understand whether someone can overdose on weed, we need to first define what a marijuana overdose is and what it looks like. Unlike the overdose associated with other drugs like opioids and alcohol, a marijuana overdose is not fatal. However, it can produce some adverse side effects that can be uncomfortable or distressing

        You can overdose on marijuana. It can be a dangerous drug. I deal with this a lot . Marijuana is not necessarily safer than cigarettes. Anything you smoke goes into your lungs?

        • Pamela Denny

          June 24, 2024 at 1:13 pm

          How is it dangerous? Alcohol is dangerous, cigarettes are dangerous. Marijuana? I don’t believe that is dangerous.

            Check recent medical peer-reviewed articles on “Cannabis Induced Psychosis.” There are more articles every month from recent research. It’s not your grandmothers pot anymore.

        Marijuana is being laced with fentanyl now like everything else making it very easy to overdose on marijuana.

            I read an article last week that said fentynol can’t reach hot enough temps in Marijuana…but if u eat high dose of edibles that can make someone feel like they r having an overdose and it probably is just because of no tolerance, weight, dose…know what u r consuming

          This was my thought also. Not far from me, 16yo girl accidentally overdosed on Fentanyl while smoking a joint with her boyfriend. It was the first time she had ever tried “Marijuana” and had no idea that the joint was laced. I believe that the boyfriend was aware that it was laced- although I cannot recall for certain whether that was opinion or fact. It is scary on the streets.

          If that were true there’d be some dead people for sure! Then all is not THC it’s a chemical! A man-made chemical instead of natural marijuana

        • David Martin

          June 18, 2024 at 9:45 am

          You’d be overdosing on the Fentanyl not the Marijuana.

        • Pamela Denny

          June 24, 2024 at 1:15 pm

          Then it is not marijuana that you are overdosing on. It would be whatever drugs someone else has laced it with.

        Hey listen idiot an edible form you can very easily OD on marijuana I’m a 69 year old man I’ve been smoking for 54 fucking years and I’ve seen people OD on brownies well you can’t get overdose smoking it at least I never have you can in an edible or pure THC!

        You don’t understand how potent the marijuana is at these shops now. The health care industry is very concerned with the effects of it and its very addictive qualities. Not like marijuana from years ago..

        Yes, but with cigarettes, you Don’t Eat the tobacco!! So this is totally different! He didn’t inhale the smoke, he ate it! Different things will effect you differently! So don’t say you can’t! He Did!!!

      Facts though you have to consume more than your body weight to literally have to try and overdose on marijuana for it to happen. I don’t think anyone has. It was laced I’m sure or he just was really messed up. Crazy though hope the kids okay.

      I’ve done that and I’ve also smoked enough to make me twitch uncontrollably.

      It depends on size of the person and the potency of the drug.

    November 15, 2017 at 9:06 pm

    I’m curious what the definition of “overdose” is in this case. ?

  4. Zatch

    November 16, 2017 at 2:59 pm

    This is misinformation and you should be ashamed for making such an ignorant and blatantly false article.

    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.

      You may want to read up on what an overdose is. An overdose is generally not fatal. It is also what responders on the scene called it and how it was called in to dispatch

      • Brandon

        November 16, 2017 at 6:19 pm

        Technically, it can be considered an overdose but considering most people don’t use that term unless it’s fatal, it’s misleading…

    I ate a pie made for my sick mother in law to make sure it was ok for consumption. after about 15 minutes my heart starting pumping faster and faster to the point I felt like I would die. I ran to the bathroom and forced it out my system , and felt better emediatly.

    My question to this, would be, who made the brownies, and let’s see the weed you used, a sample of it, so you can see the the level in the way how old was the od victim.

    Isn’t it possible that the pot was tampered with? Fentanyl is everywhere!

    • Bernadette McIlrath

      I definitely agree with you. Reason I buy my weed from dispensaries. Fentanyl is everywhere!! Weed may cost more at the dispensaries but at least we know it’s safe.

        Fact and agree anyone getting Marijuana from the streets is looking to die. Stop playing with your lives. Dealers don’t care they want there money

  12. Eliza

    May 6, 2024 at 4:32 pm

    That would be the only logical assumption. Fentanyl sucks. It’s making it tough for people with real pain issues and chronic severe pain because people are unknowingly overdosing on fentanyl(opoid), placing ALL legit opoids into the pile of the opoid crisis bull crap. When they’re given correctly for chronic pain it can be life changing. Allowing many chronically I’ll pain sufferers to have a decent life and be able to do every day skills on their own or at least with less help allowing more independence.
    Anyone who puts fentanyl or pcp into weed is just a drug dealer getting people hooked on “theirweed” when it’s laced. SHAMEFUL! My sister almost died from a pcp laced joint. It was awful.

      So another words she overdosed on another drug that they are not speaking of!!!
      They should have wrote She ate a marijuana brownie and it had another drug in it.

        Two points. 1. We release what police tell us when we ask. If police stated there was another substance, we would have said so and 2. People continue to associate overdoses with death. People often overdose on substances and don’t die.

    • Bernadette McIlrath

      May 21, 2024 at 11:32 am

      I almost died from weed laced with PCP back in the 80’s. Thank God for dispensaries which are safe. Pricier but SAFE !!

      Thank you Eliza, I live with cronic back pain that surgery did not help, for a while there it was nearly impossible to get a doctor to write a prescription when my doctor died. I can not function in life with that. Pain is so intense to not have it. Thankfully I found a doctor, but had to actually prove my pain was real.

    Long story short, the kid did drugs and didnt die. So, you’re telling me that a doofy teen at Durfee was dumb enough to eat a weed brownie on campus, in effect becoming a *high* school student.

      You say that because you don’t understand what overdosing is.

    You cannot overdose on marijuana. It’s is physically impossible. It can however cause other illnesses or unhealthy behaviors to become worse. People need to realize these articles are fully funded by the pharmaceutical industry because they need sick people. There is no money in a cure. Symptom control is where they make a lot of money. So bullshit like this get in people’s heads and those dumb enough to buy into it just make things more difficult. For cannibus a true miracle plant. It would take the place of 60% or more of medications. That people get hooked on. Or die from. Majority of there drug side effects are worse than wtv your original condition. And they know this. They bet on it. Marijuana has always been here and always will. We have an endocannibinoid system built into our brains and our DNA. Do some research for all our sakes.

      You can overdose on food, but not marijuana? You may want to do some research instead of asking others to. Overdose does not mean die. You can overdose on all kinds of things.

    I’ve an avid smoker but never messed with edibles like that. Man, I had some chocolate and that s*** had me on my a**. I never considered it an overdose. I just learned my lesson. Smoking and ingesting provide two different experiences to the body.

    Why would Anyone “lace” weed they’re selling w Fentanyl?? I mean, these ppl selling marijuana laced w Fentanyl wouldn’t have many “repeat” customers w ppl dying. Wtf!? Let’s be adults. Kid likely took way too much n started buggin out.
