Statistics show accidental cannabis consumption is insignificant

In 2017, the Massachusetts and Rhode Island Poison Control Center received 40,724 phone calls, according to government statistics: harried school nurses, baffled physicians, and worried members of the general public wondering what you do when someone ingests a bottle of something they ought not have.

Of these calls, 3,832 — or fewer than 10% — resulted in a visit to the emergency room, though 5,399, or about one in eight, resulted in a hospitalization. Still, two-thirds of “poisonings” in these two states were handled successfully at home, work, school, or wherever the toxin was ingested.

The truth is, everything we thought we knew about cannabis is blather

It was the nightmare scenario for every parent in the 1980s, hammered home in countless PSAs and hacky TV plots. Your kid’s friend has pot. He wants to share. “Come on,” he’s saying. “Just try it. It will make all your problems go away.” That’s the premise that spawned “Just Say No” and “This Is Your Brain On Drugs.” But in most renderings, it didn’t feature a kid who was 70 years old.

That was then and this is now. And in the years since, everything we thought we knew about the sociology and the science of marijuana has been flipped on its head.

CDC flags one death and nearly 200 cases of lung illnesses in U.S, possibly tied to vaping

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday it had identified 193 potential cases of severe lung illness tied to vaping in 22 states as of Aug. 22, including one adult in Illinois who died after being hospitalized.

The CDC has been investigating a “cluster” of lung illnesses that it believes may be linked to e-cigarette use, although it has not yet been able to establish whether they were in fact caused by vaping.

E-cigarettes are generally thought to be safer than traditional cigarettes, which kill up to half of all lifetime users, according to the World Health Organization. But the long-term health effects of vaping are largely unknown.

Who was history's first pot smoker?

Thousands of years before the first American stoners hotboxed their mom’s car, Chinese mourners were gathering around a pile of smouldering cannabis, breathing in its psychoactive smoke.

While people living in the area around eastern China have been growing cannabis for its oil for millennia, new research published in Science Advances reveals that residents of western China were consuming, and possibly growing it, as a drug as early as 2,500 years ago.
