How much weed would it take to kill you?

Drugs like cocaine, crack and heroin can be lethal even at moderate doses, depending on your body chemistry and health. But what about weed? How much weed would you have to smoke to overdose and die? Way more than you could ever possibly intake.

From a study done in 1988 by the US Department of Justice and the DEA:

“In layman terms this means that in order to induce death, a marijuana smoker would have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times as much marijuana as is contained in one marijuana cigarette. NIDA-supplied marijuana cigarettes weigh approximately .9 grams. A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response.”

So if somehow, you can smoke 15000 pounds of weed in fifteen minutes, you’d overdose. Otherwise, you’re fine.
