According to Drug War Facts, the answer is 0.
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.
The primary active ingredient in marijuana is tetrahydrocannibinol or THC. However, this is somewhat misleading, in that the effects one experiences when sampling marijuana are derrived from a rainbow of canniboid halluncinogens and intoxicants, all related to but not exactly the same as THC. As plants tend to formulate compounds in wildly varying amounts, one cannot know how much THC or other active ingredients -- if any -- will be delivered from one plant, one leaf, etc.
Turning towards studies that used pure THC or Drabinol -- synthetic THC (which appears to be different enough to be pharmacologically out of parallel with naturally occurring THC), we find that the usual recreational dosage is roughly 10-15mg/kg for a normal human and as much as 75mg per dose for oncology patients. We also find that the LD50 (Lethal Dose 50%) of THC is 1,270mg/kg for male rats. Doing the arithmetic for humans, we find that it takes about 300gm of pure THC to acheive lethality in 50% of the test cases, which amounts to roughly 30,000 marijuana cigarettes (assuming 10mg per cigarette).
Under the circumstances, we can honestly say that THC and marijuana in general is not directly very toxic to humans at all, and it's no surprise that there are no recorded, substatiated fatalities resulting from marijuana/THC overdose.
There have been 0 deaths due to marijuana in over 2,700 years anywhere in the world.
My research indicates there have been no deaths from any cause directly attributed to use of marijuana.
Probably a lot less than driving while texting !
no reported deaths have been reported from marijuana.
none, marijuana isn't that bad for you. There have been -0- deaths from cannabis since its recorded use, around 5000 years.
321 people in the US
Because the government thinks that marijuana is bad and they will not legalize it because of that even though there are no deaths due to marijuana
During the year 1982 there were 11 deaths on Mount Everest. Four were due to falling, Three due to an avalanche, Two due to disapearance, One due to illness and One due to icefall collapse. There are not usually this many deaths in one year.
States track the number of intoxication related crashes but do not break down what the intoxicants are by accident. It is therefore not possible to determine the exact statistic.
Nobody has died from a marijuana overdose, the LD50 (dose at which 50% of people die) is much too high.Due to Marijuana's status as a controlled substance in most parts of the world, this statistic is not readily available. The majority of marijuana related deaths are caused by lung cancer or other complications. Other deaths related to marijuana include:schizophrenic episodesDUI
There have been no reported deaths of marijuana.so 0
There have been no deaths EVER recorded where the cause was marijuana.
According to Freedom of Information requests submitted by the group ProCon.org, from 1997 to 2005 the Food and Drug Administration recorded 279 deaths to which marijuana contributed. 187 of these deaths were listed as being directly related to the use of the cannabis plant itself.Some doctors have also stated they believe the actual number of marijuana related deaths is probably much higher because marijuana is often dismissed as a cause of death due to it's reputation as being "harmless", due to the appearance of other substances in the deceased's toxicology reports, and routine omissions in coroners' reports.This assessment was substantiated by an estimate published on ProCon's website linking marijuana to as many as 296 preventable deaths in the year 1990 alone.
There has been zero reported deaths from marijuana use in history
well, to my calculation there are about 2 deaths a second so that would be like 120 deaths a minute.
Cigarettes are way more dangerous than marijuana which has a perfect toxicology record of 0 deaths. Cigarettes kill hundreds of thousands of users a year due to the harmful additives they put in.
The CDC reports no more than 1 to 2 deaths in America annually, that are the underlying cause by cannabis use alone.
