November 13, 2009 – Contrary to what some politictians and prohibitionists try to tell you there has NEVER been a death from marijuana only overdose! the reason for this is marijuana’s toxicity level, Its non toxic! you can “overdose” easier from water!

Studies have shown that the levels it would take to kill a person from overdose is 40,000 times higher than what it would take to get you “high”. compared to alcohol which takes about 4 to 10 times the amount it takes to get you “high” and is responsible for literally thousands of deaths every year from overdose. so explain to me again why marijuana is illegal? and alcohol isn’t.

Also, the number of American deaths per year that result directly or primarily from the following selected causes nationwide is represented by the chart below, according to World Almanacs, Life Insurance Actuarial (death) Rates, and the last 20 years of U.S. Surgeon Generals’ reports.

TOBACCO —> 340,000 to 450,000
ALCOHOL —> 150,000+
“LEGAL” DRUG OVERDOSE -> 14,000 to 27,000
CAFFEINE –> 1,000 to 10,000
ILLICIT DRUG OVERDOSE -> 3,800 to 5,200
ASPIRIN —> 180 to 1,000+
MARIJUANA ——->>> 0

Marijuana users also have the same or lower incidence of murders and highway deaths and accidents than the general non-marijuana using population as a whole. Crancer Study, UCLA; U.S. Funded ($6 million), First & Second Jamaican Studies, 1968 to 1974; Costa Rican Studies, 1980 to 1982; et al. LOWEST TOXICITY 100% of the studies done at dozens of American universities and research facilities show pot toxicity does not exist. Medical history does not record anyone dying from an overdose of marijuana (UCLA, Harvard, Temple, etc.) Source.
