Comment: while studying the benefits of medicinal marijuana, i've read
that in recorded history, nobody has ever died from an overdose of
marijuana. is this true?

According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services (Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration), and quoted by a slew of other legitimate sites:

quote:
An exhaustive search of the literature finds no credible reports of deaths induced by marijuana. The US Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) records instances of drug mentions in medical examiners' reports, and though marijuana is mentioned, it is usually in combination with alcohol or other drugs. Marijuana alone has not been shown to cause an overdose death.
