This news story is right in line with what happened in my family. I got a panicked phone call from my brother. It seems that his son, who still lives with his parents, has a medical marijuana card. He heard his mother say that she was stressed out, so he decided to use some of his weed to make her some brownies.

She ate five of them before her son told her to slow down and confessed to what was in them.

She began freaking out.

So now my brother is calling because she is worried that she is going to overdose. I explained to him that the best thing that they can do is wait for it to wear off. He asked if they should go to the hospital and I advised them that there is nothing they can do for her at the hospital.

They decided to go anyway. Soooo, after a $1,000 copay and 6 hours in the emergency room, she was again sober. They didn’t do a thing for her apart from letting her sit in the waiting room while the effects wore off.

I got a good laugh out of it.

And as a bonus she now has an official record somewhere of being a drug user.

Well, it looks like you weren’t rntirely correct in stating that the hospital could do nothing for them. Indeed, it helped relieve them of $1000, in exchange for letting them safely wait out the time it took for her to ‘come down’. I hope that in retrospect, they are happy with that value proposition, now that she’s safely back to her normal state.

I am curious about what the consequences for her son might be, given that he didn’t gain ‘nformed consent’ from his ‘patient’. 😉

And all kidding aside, I’m glad things turned out ok, albeit a bit expensively.

Cannabis has no LD50 (no lethal overdose) and when used appropriately, is effective for anxiety. Gee, the govt lied about this too….

Well…..bless their hearts.

Couldn’t find that neighbor in the Grateful Dead t-shirt or that dude who just vibes washing dishes at the local eats ta talk em down?

Sounds like most folks first experience with edibles: “Huh I ate half the cookie like the package said and dont feel anything…..better eat a handful of them.”

Hospital waiting room. What a terrible place to be high.
