    This reminds me of the time Jay Thomas ate some pot brownies and freaked out at a party, vomiting. They sat him in a chair with a trash bag tied around his neck, vomiting periodically. Probably the funniest story he's ever told.


    DENVER (CBS4)
    – The family of a Tulsa man who shot himself Saturday night in Keystone is blaming his suicide on his ingestion of edible marijuana candies.

    “It was completely a reaction to the drugs,” Kim Goodman said about her son Luke’s Saturday night suicide.

    Luke Goodman’s death is now the third death in Colorado linked to marijuana edibles.

    The 23-year-old college graduate was in the midst of a two-week ski and snowboard vacation with family members. Saturday afternoon he and his cousin, Caleb Fowler, took a bus from Keystone to Silverthorne where Fowler says they bought $78 worth of edibles and marijuana.

    “He was excited to do them,” Fowler told CBS4.

    When the young men got back to Keystone, Fowler said they began ingesting the edible pot. He said his cousin favored some peach tart candies, each piece of candy containing 10 mg of the active ingredient in marijuana, the recommended dose for an adult consuming an edible.

    But when Goodman consumed several and experienced no immediate effects he kept gobbling them up.

    “Luke popped two simultaneously” after the first two didn’t seem to do anything, said Fowler.

    Then he said Goodman took a fifth candy, five times the recommended dose. His mother says her son likely didn’t see the warning on the back of the container which says, “The intoxicating effects of this product may be delayed by two or more hours … the standardized serving size for this product includes no more than 10 mg.”

    Several hours later Fowler said his cousin became “jittery” then incoherent and talking nonsensically.

    “He would make eye contact with us but didn’t see us, didn’t recognize our presence almost. He had never got close to this point, I had never seen him like this,” Fowler said.

    Xavier is right, but those edibles are going to be the death of legal cannabis unless they get it together. The fact of the matter is a single chocolate bar can have as much THC as a pound of bad grass. Go figure what happens when a newbie munches out on the entire bar.

    with all the information available at your fingertips, i have no sympathy for this dude. there have been a bunch of stories of people eating too much and that it's a bad thing to do.

    eating too much pot can be a shitty experience but it will be over in a few hours. he apparently wanted to end the experience sooner. weak minded and dead due to his own actions. can't wait for the anti pot people to point out how dangerous it is. :toke:

    his poor parents.

    I'm surprised this idiot made it so long.
    Seems like the type of kid who would have downed a bottle of antifreeze.

    One of my buddies ate a second chocolate bar after thinking the first wasn't effective.
    He texted me freaking the hell out, asking me to go over there
    to help him calm down.
    I drove 40 mins to his house and hung out for a few hours 'til he felt better.
    I thought it was funny 'cos dude is a hardcore all day weed smoker.

    If someone is so messed up that you're worried about them, why wouldn't you take them to the hospital?
