Let me start by saying what we all know: Cannabis cannot kill you by itself. Sure, if you mix it with all kinds of opioids and liquor and downers and other stuff you might die. That’s not because of cannabis though, it’s because you’re an idiot and you took way too many drugs together. It isn’t dangerous that way, period. That’s one of the advantages of cannabis use; it is the safest psychoactive drug known to man.
Let us now look at the case of Gemma Moss. The Daily Mail has published an article by Sam Webb about the inquest concerning her mysterious death. It seems Gemma, a healthy 31 year old woman, died in her sleep for reasons unknown. She went to bed one night and simply didn’t get up, quietly slipping into the hereafter while she slept. She had used a “moderate to heavy” amount of cannabis, according to toxicology reports. The problem here is that she did not have a lethal dosage of the drug in her system. In fact, no threshold of lethality has ever been established for any cannabinoid. Guess work puts that dosage so high that you couldn’t hope to consume so much in a lifetime.
