Animal tests have revealed that extremely high doses of cannabinoids are needed to have lethal effect. This has led scientists to conclude that the ratio of the amount of cannabinoids necessary to get a person intoxicated (i.e., stoned) relative to the amount necessary to kill them is 1 to 40,000. In other words, to overdose, you would have to consume 40,000 times as much marijuana as you needed to get stoned. In contrast, the ratio for alcohol varies between 1 to 4 and 1 to 10. It is easy to see how upwards of 5000 people die from alcohol overdoses every year and no one EVER dies of marijuana overdoses.

I have been reliably informed that the a lethal dose of cannabis can be calculated thus:

50g of cannabs per 1kg of subject's body-weight,

Administered to the subject by means of dropping it on their head from a height of 100m.

lmao that is prolly the only way possible to die from it other than lung cancer from smoking too long cuz if you think about it even if u can overdose on it you would pass out WAY before you even got half-way close to overdosing plus you would prolly have to be smoking constantly for like a week straight...like taking a hit every second during that time

i love how the government/police/ignorant people thinks were stoopid or something...which is the exact reason i talk to them and treat them like there little kids...they seem to like it a lot.

one day there gonna realize it...they need us.

lol, even the surgeon general way back when said cannabis is less dangerous than foods we eat everyday... like potatoes... and should be decriminalized. they'll never wake up. but whatever, they'll win the WOD someday.

Hey guys new here and glad to be. I thought it was called a LD50 Test to determine a lethal dose.
Tests are usually done on rats, ya? we figure the only way to kill a rat with cannabis is 20 pounds dropped from 20 feet.
