Sanjay Gupta, marijuana overdose, and the government

If you mean can they overdose and die from marijuana–the answer is no, its not very likely. But they can experience extreme anxiety (panic attacks) or psychotic reactions (where they lose touch with reality and may become paranoid).”

LOL.  Seriously, they are still pushing this unbelievable horsecrap on government websites.  “Extreme anxiety”.  Never seen it and I spent a lot of time with the drug when I was young.  And I mean a lot of time with reefers and fellow consumers of reefers.  But the real killer is “psychotic reactions”.  Never seen anything even close to this.  Just absolute nonsense.

As for dying from a marijuana overdose being “not very likely”, once, in my senior year at college, a friend and I decided to see who could smoke the most reefers in one night.  We had an ounce of pot and an eighth of hash.  We smoked for hours, steadily, like every fifteen minutes setting up another bowl.  He fell asleep first and I had another bowl and went to bed.  And that was that.  We smoked as heavily as I have ever smoked in my life and I slept like a baby, felt fantastic the next day, went to classes, went to karate practice that evening, had a normal evening bowl after dinner, finished my schoolwork, and went to bed as usual and slept like a baby.

Not very likely.  What set me off is that I just heard Sanjay Gupta on a CNN commercial (during a show about Richard Nixon, inventor of the DEA and all around complete asshole who never suffered nearly as much for his crimes against humanity and his many murders as he deserved) say that he looked and could not find a single documented case of anyone dying from a marijuana overdose.  This led me to google “marijuana overdose”, which led me to that idiotic NIH web site.  Dear US federal government, please give it up already.  That war is lost and has been for quite some time.  It took less time to realize that the war in Viet Nam was a loser than it took to realize this horrific “War on Drugs” has been such a massive loser.
