From TMN The National Marijuana News Published on Jul 16, 2019 Listen to Christine Sclafani talk about the recent Newsweek story about an unfortunate woman who passed away and the coroner announced weed was the cause. Nobody on record has ever died from THC, weed, cannabis or whatever you want to call it. The Louisiana coroner suggested that her death was due to the high concentration of THC in the oil the poor young woman was vaping. Let me know what you think down in the comments. Nobody on record has ever died from an overdose of THC, weed, cannabis or whatever you want to call it. It’s never happened, until at least a Louisiana coroner recently decided to announce to the world that he had discovered the first case. I am Christine Sclafani for TNMNews and this just bothers the **** out of me! Sorry, this is a family show and not only am I swearing, but this is also very morbid. I read about this in a recent Newsweek story. According to Keith Humphrey’s, a former adviser of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, Americans use weed billions of times each year and if deaths due to overdoses could happen, statistically that would mean that if 1 in a million of those sessions resulted in an overdose death, we would see thousands of cases each year. Stop trying to link marijuana to opioids. They aren’t the same thing! The Louisiana coroner suggested that due to the high concentration of THC in the oil the poor young woman was vaping, that her death must have been caused by respiratory failure. That doesn’t make sense! Opioids connect to very critical and centralized areas of our brain that control breathing, which is often the reason why opioid overdoses result in death. There aren’t any endocannabinoid receptors in that region of our brains. It really sounds like just one more gimmick by the opposition to me. Let me know what you think down in the comments.
