Scary stuff.

At first, the 19-year-old followed these instructions, and ate just part of the cookie. But after about 30 to 60 minutes, he didnít feel any effects, so he ate the rest of the cookie, according to the report, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

Over the next few hours, the man showed erratic speech and hostile behaviors, the report said. About 2.5 hours after he ate the whole cookie, he jumped off a balcony on the fourth floor of his building, and died from trauma from the fall, the report said.

Hmm.

I knew someone who would get fully buzzed after drinking a single bottle of Mike's Hard Lemonade and I'm know guys who could shoot whiskey w/o little obvious effect. I've heard of people who get jittery and anxious after drinking espresso and people who are fine after 3 bottles of Redbull.

My point being, pot, like booze, caffeine, and all other drugs affect different people in different ways. What may cause one person to get a good, light buzz may send another person reeling into insanity. YMMV. The best advice is to try new drugs in a safe place, preferably at home and preferably with other people present to see how you may react to it. Plus, I'm not a huge fan of the super concentrated stuff, the high sneaks up on you fast and hard

I'm unsure of why this is worthy of discussion...

I don't think people realize how strong some of the edibles are.

I wonder how many people died as a result of guns, alcohol, or cars on that same day?

Considering how many 'doses' of marijuana products are consumed a day, this is a lesson in the meaning of the term 'statistically insignificant'.
