CO Doctors: Baby Boy Died From Marijuana Overdose

Jerry Cox, Contributing Author: Colorado doctors writing in the journal Clinical Practice and Cases in Emergency Medicine have confirmed that an otherwise-healthy, 11-month-old baby has died from marijuana overdose.

Researchers say the baby was lethargic; suffered a seizure; became unresponsive; and experienced fluctuations in heart rate.

Although doctors worked hard to save the child’s life, he ultimately passed away. An autopsy revealed the child appeared to be healthy, but had high levels of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, in his system.

According to the article, the child’s parents admitted to possessing marijuana.

Some say this is the first time someone has died from a marijuana overdose. However, the truth is many people have been harmed or killed by marijuana use. For example:
