Recently, we did a article on marijuana causing health problems and now according to the New Orleans Advocate, Coroner Christy Montegut claims that he's recorded the first-ever case of a marijuana overdose.
A police report noted the woman allegedly visited the emergency room with a chest infection three weeks before she died, with Montegut adding that nothing in the toxicology report pointed to other causes of death. He stated, "It looked like it was all THC because her autopsy showed no physical disease or afflictions that were the cause of death. There was nothing else identified in the toxicology—no other drugs, no alcohol. There was nothing else."
Former senior policy adviser at the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, Keith Humphreys, questioned the report, saying there would be more recorded marijuana overdoses if humans were able to consume that level of THC.
Marijuana has been used for years by smokers from all over the globe, but now THC is used in various new ways than before. Not only that, the Government is also experimenting with marijuana in ways we have never seen.
Who is to say what the future of Marijuana holds for household that use cannabis as a supplement. While the fight to legalize marijuana is still on going, there is another fight behind closed doors to keep it from becoming legal.
