Two Kamloops youth smoked some pot and got sick. No useful details
provided. It's rare and it's suspicious. The toxic quantity of
cannabis is estimated at just under 700 kilograms for an adult. That's
enough pot to give 25 million people two good hits on a pipe and get
them buzzed for two hours. No one can consume seven times their body
weight in pot in 10 or 15 minutes no matter how much they try.

Next important fact -- no one has ever died of ingesting cannabis. So
what would we need to die from the toxic quantity of cannabis? How
about a big bale of it falling from the sky and crushing someone.
