Answer to a Hard Question

So how much weed DO you have to smoke in order to get a lethal overdose?













----




You have to smoke approximately 15,000 joints in under 20 minutes to get a lethal overdose of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).


I challenge anyone to try that. Lets get started.

    I heard that if you smoke full pack of cigarettes (20) in 20-30 minutes you'll die of nicotine overdose.

    As a smoker, I can tell you that it takes about 7 minutes to smoke a cigarette as quickly as you can. But usually it takes about 15. There are 20 cigarettes in a pack. It would be impossible to smoke 20 cigarettes in 20-30 minutes.

    40–60 mg (0.5-1.0 mg/kg) can be a lethal dosage for adult humans.

    Most cigarettes (in the smoke inhaled) contain 0.1 to 2.8 milligrams of nicotine. It is impossible however to overdose on nicotine through smoking alone (though a person can overdose on nicotine through a combination of nicotine patches, nicotine gum, and/or tobacco smoking at the same time.)

    I don't really understand your point. I'm indifferent to the legalisation, either way i'll smoke it. But the argument that just because it doesn't kill you means it should be legal is pretty flawed. Lots of things that don't kill you are illegal and lots of things that do kill you are legal. It's illegal because it affects a persons mind and it wasn't mainstream enough in earlier days that it became accepted as readily. It's not legalised because any party that tried to push this through would get slated endlessly. This legalisation will never happen because it's politcal suicide, not because they actually care what it does to you.

    Also i read somewhere a while back that cannabis cannot be taxed, so governments wouldn't get any benefit from legalising it.

    You're going to die of CO2 poisoning long before THC overdose.

    Yes. The CO2 will corrode your blood LONG before the THC can do that. Plus, THC is almost impossible to OD on, thus, the burning of the lungs will kill you. THC is only known to be toxic under any insertion besides smoking it.

    So what's the real number? If I smoke strong cigarettes which is 7mg nicotine in one. 20*7mg = 140 mg in 20 minutes sounds dangerous.

    If you smoke enough weed to kill yourself, you are just wasting it anyway and deserve to die. It took me and three buddies 2 hours to smoke 5 ounces. That is no where near 15,000 joints.

    trust me the government can always find a way to tax it. that is one thing they are very good at.

    so many things can go wrong with legalizing it.....First, heavy taxes. Second, probably shitty bud. Third, there will be an age limit(like we follow that anyways). And last of all, it wont be as fun anymore.

    But if it's legal, more people will sell it more openly. It will be taxed, but the price will go down anyway because of the compititon to sell it. As an example, one of my friends lives in the bahamas, where pot, though not legal is still very common. So much so that you can easily get it for $3.50 a gram. There's so much around it's all about who can get it for you the cheapest. True there will be an age limit but there's an age limit for Alcohol too. Does that stop people who are underage from drinking. Hell no.

    wont be as fun anymore if they legalize it? do you smoke? because as any casual smoker knows, nothing is a bigger buzz kill than having to talk to a cop while high as shit, while trying to pretend you arent.
    - c8r15 October 27, 2010, 10:34 am
    If you're smoking pot because it's illegal and that makes it fun then you are the equivilant of a newfag, i know this news must sting, i'll let you ponder.

    Heavy taxes would be a worthwile cost for an understanding, more open world where people can consume what they want as it's their choice, it isn't perfect i know but it's a start and if it were to be legalized the personal growing of marijuana should follow shortly after if not with it.

    And why should it be shitty bud? The goverment grows some of the best weed in the world for medicinal purposes and there are plenty of seperate companies doing it for the goverment that know what they're doing a lot more than drug dealers, anyway it isn't hard to grow good weed all it takes is a bit of practice and some patience, i know i'd do it if it were legalized, it's be a job i'd take pride in.

    Can we just ingest 15000 joints worth of THC and not smoke it?

    technically yes since its the smoke (Co2) that kills you not the THC.
    although, i wouldn't do it because you would get astronomicaly stoned and might end up killing or hurting yourself doing something stupid.

    you cant die from weed
    well yes if you smoke that much you would die but you would die from smoke (Co2) inhalation, not from the THC itself

    hope they do legalize it then we won't have to so sneaky and we can go smoke it anywhere without anyone saying anything about it so we could go right up 2 a cop and blew it right in his face say what u can't arrest me now bitch lol

    *be so *to *blow *and say *you *laugh out loud.

    "...we could go right up 2 a cop and blew it right in his face say what u can't arrest me now bitch lol."

    No a twat would do that if it were legalized.
    - HippyBoy October 27, 2010, 8:26 am
    agreed. if i was a cop and someone walked up to me and did that. theyd get a nightstick to the temple. not to mention, if they legalized it, id have less trafficers to pull over, rob, and let them on their way.

    ... and thats why i decided not to become a cop.
